The days go slow into a void.
THAT was seen written on the back of the T-shirt of a construction worker near my house. The first time I saw it, I instantly thought of writing a piece on it. Just today I saw that guy the second time with the quote on his back and here I am.
The days pass by ever so quickly when you least expect them to or when you don’t want them to. You think you have lots of time and lo! you’re already looking at your deadline.
Time flies by is an old saying. The one that I’ve mentioned here is different. The pace is seemingly unhurried. As the days pass by, you get older. You change. And so does everything around you. What happens at the end of each day anyway? Nothing. Another day commences. The previous day is no more. The same is with months and years and centuries and what not. What happens after you die? Oblivion.
They say ignorance is bliss. I’d say oblivion is bliss.
The days go slow into a void. I really am NOT able to express my point of view on that confrontational quote. It’s just too awe-inspiring.

I wish I was in monkeys’ land
The place where I was born
The monkey kissed me on my cheek
And said goodbye to me
I willilish I wallals in mallalankeys’ lallaland
The pallalace where Illai was bollolon
The mallalankey killised me allon my cheellileek
And sallalad goodballai to me
That was one of the songs we used to sing in school. A friend of mine sang the first two lines of it. I sang along with her and completed the song.
It felt really good to be reminded of my school days. I studied in a Christian missionary school. That being so, I was taught a lot of songs, carols, hymns, all that. Our school had a huge hall where we used to assemble and sing songs.
Great songs. And so are the memories.
I just wish I’d find my music book.
Oh, and belated new year wishes!
And happy 20th to me!
