Time and again..

I have compelled myself to write this blog.I knew i had to write something before the year ends.I am straying away from my basic philosophy, that i would write a blog only if i have something to write about, something substantial.But as you can see, i have not written anything for the last 6 months.:-)

I know it for a fact that New Years and Birthdays and other days are good for the economy.But personally,i hate being overawed by a new year and normally tend to run away on my Birthday.

One thing is for sure, i would feel happier writing '2010' on a piece of paper rather than 2009.2010, has some reassuring edge to it,makes you feel safe,secure and warm.Its like the year of the protective brother.
Its interesting how Calendars or the concept of Time has built or conditioned our pyschology.When somebody says,'live moment to moment' .. we normally tend to think of each moment as each second.'Live each day as it comes' .. again, we are prepared to forget everything at night all the horrible things that have happened in the day.As a rule we tend to summarize a day,a month an year, but a if we go a little deeper .. feels a little foolish.

Without the concept of time.. nobody would have a bad day,a bad year.. there would be fewer adjectives defining our lives.Though it sounds really dull.. i am sure this thing would surely take away the heaviness of the heart.

Agreed.. practically we wont get anything done without the concept of time, but pyschologically is it all too necessary ?? Though i am not too sure of the ways to drop it pyschologically, there is one way that mostly works.

Its alcohol time !!!
