An Evening With My Memory..

Somewhere in the world tonight, there's no fighting. Somewhere in the world tonight, there's no crying, there's no fear. Somewhere in the world tonight, someone's holding their first child, someone else is falling in love for the first time. Somewhere in the world tonight, everything's alright. And tonight, in this tiny corner that I occupy in this big wide space called Earth, Im thinking of you..and because of my memory of you, somewhere in my world tonight, everything's alright.

Time does not wait for anyone or anything. Time does not hesitate. *tick tock tick tock tick tock* Time keeps going, it never stops. Time sure knows how to say NO! I've learnt from Time that no matter what has happened, is happening or will happen, I must 'keep going forward'..I must go forward, no matter how much I love looking back.

Time is a precious commodity, but do we really value it or give it the sense of respect it so deserves? Time, though sometimes may appear to be selfish as it leads the race, leaving us torn between the past and the present, finding it hard to trudge along to the future, Time sure does heal us all. That's the beauty about Time. That's the kindest quality about Time. That's what we all need so very much. A Time to heal. And that Time can only come with time. How ironic! The past is the skeleton that Time left behind. The present is Time's new avatar. The future is Time's surety of reincarnation. But in all 3 forms of progression of Time's soul, we are being taught the beautiful lesson of learning from our experiences, therefore, Healing. And that can only come from 'reminiscing' without attachment.

Memory is Time's offspring. Time leaves us with it's product that we cant kill and nobody can snatch from us either, no matter how far we've travelled with Time itself. Some memories may bring you pain, some others solace. Either way, your Memory is your richest possession; your mind's most beautiful accessory. For if not for memories, it would not have occurred to me that a post in one of my favorite places on Earth *Blogville* is overdue :) Yes, I'm here today, because Time's child Memory ushered me to you. Sweet memories of you happen to meet me today and remind me that there's a lovely bunch of people waiting to read me, wanting to hear from me, wondering how I am, thinking of me, all because of Time's child that lived inside of you too. Memories, they make us who we are.

I hope you are all doing well. I have not forgotten you, for my Memory shall always bring me back to you. Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to you all! Life's going great for me *except that I was recently bitten by a venomous spider! But Im ok dont worry :) Threw a huge tanty but Im back to normal now haha!*, and I hope all is well with you too? Thanks for all the wishes, thoughts, notes, emails, messages and most of all for the endless LOVE here from your comments even though Im not into regular blogging anymore. I will try and hop around Blogville sometime soon :). Value, respect, love & appreciate Time. For Time is where we all live forever, be it the past, present or future; not anywhere else. Time is where we breathe, where we can truly reconnect, where we can undoubtedly go back to our lovedones, where fresh moments are born and where they continue to live. Time is where we exist - we 'live' in a blob of Time that once used to be, is and will always be. I believe there's a 'place' where we can wave goodbye to our fears and tears, atleast for a little while; Moments & Memory...Time.

2011 is at birth..reincarnation of 2010 *and of many years that were it's past lives*. Have a wonderful 'time', create beautiful 'memories', and dont forget to be inspired by Time and 'keep going forward'!

~An Evening With My Memory, December 2010~ this post was written in 10mins after Joyce sent me an email asking me to write a post for her to start the New Year with...I hope it hasnt got too many typos, grammar mistakes & too much of advice :) Thanks Joyce for your wonderful and undying encouragement, for your Memory of me.

Missed ya too Jay. Dun ya yanks touch Assange now! ;-)

Joyce I thank u for ur encouragement. Always. U hv a way abt ya that made me wanna write this post :)

Mehreen yes we all still exist in that 'time'. Hows life girl? Missed ya! *MWAH*

Anwesa ty girl. I love reading ur posts too...they r always upto the brim with brilliance!

Pri yes it does seem like eons ago doesnt it :) It's so good to hear from u. I hope all is well with ya and tnxx alot for the wishes hun! TC

CU tnxx and yes I hope n pray for a day like that! when the whole world can finally truly breathe. People r so heartless..did u read abt the Anni Dewani story? Its so shocking that we still live in a world like that!

Ria ur a beauty! No doubt. And who said u aint lucky? u r the luckiest girl on Earth..cos u hv one of the most BEAUTIFUL hearts that a human could ever hv! *HUGS* And tnxx for the beautiful wishes for me and my mum! Love ya girl. Cant wait to see ur bridal pics next year!

Arrrrrv heyyyyyyyy! *big smile here* :) so v nice to hear from u mate, woohoo! Hows everything with ya? I went to ur blog but there was no blog :( why dun u write once in a while like me? Leave it open. Thats the best way to deal with writers block or whatever reasons that make us part with blogs. Writing is one of my passions, so I'd be here from time to time..not as wacko-regular as b4 hehe, but I'd like to keep writing somehow. It keeps me ALIVE within. Where r u now? Hows life going for ya? Would love to know. Wherever u r, I hope ur happy. did u end up getting married?? ;-) TC.

Well-said Rakesh! @encapsulation of time. Thats exactly what Memories are! ur a guru of Word-play :)

LOL Mayz it seems the spider carefully chose me! It was a bad bite, and it left a huge area *under my right arm* patchy and ugly..and the doc says it would take months for the scar to fade! Im not seeing anyone til then LOL.
:( And there goes my night-jogging! Bloody spider @##$%&!

Ash it's so lovely to hear from ya girl :) ty so much for the wishes! I hope all is well with ya. TC & KIT. X

aw Jeevan tnxx matey :) I hope all is well with ya and that ur keeping well. Send some pretty Rangoli my way too! *HUGS*
