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 !!!

Bhave.. the man of a few words or the boy of many??
this sentence does not make any sense but neither does our law enforcement

so..

you should always take care of cows on the streets.. because nobody else will

hmmm...time.
You've touched upon my favorite enemy. About time I discovered your blog, Bhave.
But 'Time' - Its practically useless. I need it psychologically only.
Time's like those rules you love-to break...the common enemy which keeps the army together, the diva everyone gambles to get on their side. When I don't have an answer, I say Time will tell....And Time will one day save me from having to begin narration with,"kids,when I had a hundred wrinkles less....." What the heck! Even if there's no time, I can say, when bhave had hair...
I agree with you on'2010'- It looks more reassuringly stable. 2009- That one looks like it wanted to give a serious look but tipped over in minutes.
