Memories...Just Memories...!!!


They say life is all about memories and how we live in them and with them. I had my fair share of them and very recently have I had too many of them - some good, some very good and some not so good. Memories are like a selection of images, some illusive and some printed indelibly on the brain, and my grandmother told me, that each image is like a thread, each thread woven together to make a tapestry of intricate texture, and the tapestry tells a story, and the story is our past. This memory with my grandmother is a story too and I am completely indebted to her for sharing such a genius thought with me. Those were the days where any thoughtful talk by the elders was just a brain eater, a big no-no. I remember behaving as though I knew everything in the world and nothing could defy my acts and thoughts; but now I realize how that same exact thought by my grandmother defines me today. I am proud how well I have managed to keep this feature of mine so very dear to me.

The lines below define my time in the most recent past, past that could have held a lot of truth to it; but for reasons beyond human understanding, this past wasn't just meant to be mine...but yeah, no regrets; I love each and every bit of it; and thanks to whom so ever for giving me these.

This is again the same thought,
the same reason,
its reminding me of moments...
moments that I cherish yet struggle to remember
moments that define me
moments that tell me...life moves on
what remains is/are moments...
and the thought that someone should come from somewhere
some voice should beckon me too...
& the thought continues..


I will always love this past and love the reason behind it; for what ever it has given me and for what ever it has made me into.

I am good without YOU...!!!

So what if I am Shattered...yeah... I am good without YOU!!!

My watch says NOW...!!!

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn’t use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On


And it rained, It was nothing really new
And it blew, we’ve seen all that before
And it poured, the Earth began to strain
Pontchartrain leaking through the door, tides at war


If a hurricane doesn’t leave you dead
It will make you strong
Don’t try to explain it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On


And it rained, It was nothing really new
And it blew, seen all that before
And it poured, the Earth began to strain
Pontchartrain buried the 9th Ward to the 2nd floor


According to my watch the time is now
Past is dead and gone
Don’t try to shake it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On


Don’t try to explain it just bow your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On


According to my watch the time is now, the past is dead and gone...Wow...


And still, this is a great mindset… yesterday is a memory, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift; that is why it is called the present!!!


How many times have I gotten hung up on the past or worried about the future, when I should just take a breath and keep on moving?


How many times would it have been a great thing for me to look down at a watch that said “NOW”.


I don’t have some profound point to make about this. I’m just writing because the song makes me think. Hopefully, it’ll make you think, too.
