Going Back

My younger sister does it all the time —- revising, and looking at our past life. In the beginning I hated it. When she would start revisiting, I would quietly groan to myself — oh no! Not again. But now I let her do it. She can’t change herself. Maybe she finds it mentally therapeutic.

If one could really go back in time to undo past regrets, and the outcome doesn’t change, one will face stress, and more heartbreak.

My two younger brothers lost their wills to live due to the hardships they faced as orphans. Looking at myself I can say I managed to survive.

No wish to go through that again.

I do wish I had a better understanding of grown ups, and human nature as a child, and now as an older person. I am still taken aback by the true nature of some people in my life.


Revisionist History

Go back in time to an event you think could have played out differently for you. Let alternate history have its moment: tell us what could, would or should have happened?

Stone Faces

My daughter sent me this photo sometime back. You will come across it, when you travel to Madina in Saudi Arabia by road.

The stones look like giant faces turned skywards. Did someone arranged them this way, or is it a work of nature? I think it is the later.

Still if one is having fanciful thoughts:  someone must have used magic to turn some living humans into those faces, turned to the sky—- looking upwards——-confused at what happened to them.

What do you think?
