When you come to think of it, time doesn’t flow very smoothly — it gushes out in fits and spurts like a leaking pipe that you try to keep under control even as you call the plumber with your free hand. It’s been a while — a long while — since my last post. Heck, it was so annoying to see the same front-page everyday that I stopped visiting my own website beyond a point.
I guess I have excuses. Many things have changed since November last year, and yet, life is the same as before. Most changes in life are like re-arrangements of pieces on a chess board. You move some here, you move some there, but overall things remain in balance except for the occasional loss of a piece. It’s only towards the end of the game that things become exciting, but ironically, that’s the time when you have the least control over the board. Life is God playing chess with you; I suppose He likes to win.
The New Year came and went with a small burst of hope (purely my imagination, I am sure) that ebbed quickly and receded into oblivion. But February was a month of many changes, with January frantically getting ready for it. I have seldom seen a month packed with so many punches, but the punches were superficial, almost playful to an extent. There was a wedding to navigate through, a vacation to deal with, castles to look at, a workplace to be moved, an apartment to get out of , an apartment to move into and impossible things to be taken care of at impossible schedules.
But the truth is, life isn’t a game of chess — you shouldn’t stop to think after every move, you just power through, no matter what. Never stop, never give up, just keep going. Just keep going, that’s all…
