The weaves of time

"The wheel weaves as the wheel wills"
Those are not my words. They come from Robert Jordan in his epic series, "The wheel of time". The story of good versus evil - already spanning 11 novels and growing.
I hold those words very close to my heart. Our lives are but threads in the pattern that is woven with time. Sometimes we can choose the intertwining of that pattern. Other times we are drawn into it, to be woven as destined.
The Wheel of time turns, and ages come and pass leaving memories that become legend, then fade to myth, and are long forgot when that age comes again. The circle of clife goes on and we rarely remember that which we have been through.
If only we could. Then the learning would not go to waste.

I look at the threads of time - of the threads that have been interwoven with mine for a while and then gone their own way. I used to grieve when threads went astray.
Today I accept it, as a part of the pattern.
For a little while, the pattern weaves its way around us. We can make demands of it - at this point in time; then, when it has used us - things return to normal!!
We are pawns again.

I have this recurring dream. A dream where I fight evil, strike down oppressors and usher in peace. What happens after that peace is a mystery. It reflects in the way I approach my life. From one fire to another. I love crisis - not created by me and aim to bring order there. Then when the fire is over and done with - I feel the weights of monotony bearing down on me. I find peace difficult to bear. It's always a war inside of me. I need a challenge - always.

As I heard a wise man say - I feel the weight of a peaceful present bearing down on me!!!

"Weaves a pattern"..."Threads of time"..."to be woven as destined"... uff!
too many "intertwined adjectives" ;)

With all due respect to Robert Jordan, but I think he must have:
A)Wanted to be a fashion designer, or
B)Written this after watching Spiderman.

If you love crisis so much and are finding it difficult to bear with peace and monotony, why not come back to LB? :))

Think about it ;)

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
