As Time and Will tell…

she wanted to own a tree of bangles….so she collects them, in all colours, particularly glass bangles…so that one day, when she’s got a ton of them she’s going to buy a big stand, with branches from which she can hang bangles…why? because years back, when she was a kid she  had gone to her friend’s house, and her mum had something like a cloth hanger but for bangles…and to many it may have been something they could have passed by…but for her they gleamed, like the opening to some heaven’s gates…

and it stuck…

it took 4 years of getting to know some one, a really close friend.. to know one of their ultimate, simplest desires…

i mean i knew she loved bangles…especially glass ones…but i didn’t know why…

funny thing huh?..4 years…

i like that though…i like that time does things..or rather we or nature (human and non human) do things in time…

let’s stick to it being a matter of time’s magic…just for matter of convenience, and the ease of attributing causes to a concept…

time can heal, can damage, can reveal, can hide, can strengthen, weaken, toss and tumble and build and pull things together…time…how did we even manage to create a concept out the passing of every day? and drag it on from something that could be clocked to something that could affect our lives…so much…

it’s like what Pi said in the ‘Life of Pi’…(yeah i know i may have quoted this before but i love that book)…”time is an illusion that makes one pant..”…and so it may be…

and against all that happens because of how we use time, we have will…

our will to fight against things that seem to pretty much inevitably happen…our will to resist good or bad change…our will to not let ourselves get into shells…our will to be wise about how we use the effects of time or how we fight against the time…

how much can will away? what’s worth to will away? when do we need to let things just happen?when do we need to step up?

after more than 2 decades of being alive, i’m still learning…and i’m sure all of us will keep learning…i don’t run late..
