The physical, the 'semi-animated' forms of life - the trees, ocean and the buildings - seem untouched. The breeze and how it invisibly touches you, brings back the same emotion and smile; makes me wonder how one can preserve their beauty, in a world thats ever changing - almost every second. So what's changed, is the question. Numbers - the date, the time, the month, and yes the year - 2012 on to 2013. I think deeper and I say, its not the numbers either - its just the order in which we sequence them that changes every moment. But maybe there's more...
As if symbolic of the sunlight on my face, the year gone by has been a mixed bag - moments that were enticing, full of warmth and moments where I've waited to bask in the same light.
I have, like most of you who're reading this, had a ton happy moments this year -and yes mine started on the 1st of Jan too, like they will again - tomorrow! A fatter pay check, a new job, capturing silhouettes by the beach, doing a treasure hunt with the one you love in your own house - the sunny side has also, and always been the most simplistic! And it's the lack of this 'simpleton' moments that bring in the shades - some grey and the other that fall aptly under the 'color me bad' variety.
Come to think of it, there was and is a little bit of everything in every moment - and what all moments have had for me is a purpose. A lot of it that is recognized, and a whole lot that needs to be discovered.
For now, it seems like I am at a 'calendarized' crossroad - leaving behind another year, reaching out with hope to the other, to the new.
Mumbai and me feel alike - a little bit of smog, a little bit of calm, a little bit of mystery. A little bit of.... complete!
