Own your past!!

Here is another experiment and a super failure!!

On 9 Feb'10,  I deleted all the previous posts to reset the blog.. I said to myself - a Fresh Start .. Brand new Life... Tabula-rasa.. The Big Bang.

An experiment at Ctrl+Z;
life-prompt> rm -rf / ;

Also to make a metaphorical point!! rather to myself!

I almost got away with this, until last week.

I was lazily looking at a silly email fwd, of an optical illusion.. And I didn't get it the first time. But, when I saw the answer, I saw it.. But, when I tried to see it again, it was so obvious, it was no more fun! - how did I miss that!

When you get to know something, see something - there is NO WAY you can un-learn un-see it.

Have you felt this? - When you listen to the same track the second time, it loses its magic. You don't feel the same emotions.

With everyone you meet,
with every step you take..
with every spoken word,
with every book read, every music track,
with every passing moment,

You change.. You change for ever!! You are never the same - ever again.!!

This expt was a crude attempt of denial;
a futile effort to re-model the reality;

When I discussed this with my super-mom, she quipped,
If you can have a clean slate everytime, whats the fun?


Oh yeah, before deleting, I took a xml-backup of the blog - to show my grand children. I thought they'd be amused at my poetic skills. All the prev posts shd be back shortly.

Good to see something silly making you think.
