Yet Another Inconvenient Truth

image via 'skineart by njlee

It floated into my stream of consciousness like a post-it tugged loose from cyber space. Cloaked in deceptive simplicity, the ring of truth is unmistakable in this charmingly lucid statement. So true and yet, somehow, so incredibly disconcerting.

To think that life will never make complete and total sense until it has passed you by............


I bet there is an appropriate Calvin-esque retort to this.

Hey Mandakini! Love reading your blog. I remembered Waking Life, the Linklater film, when I read this post. Here's something from the guy driving the boat-car : "I feel like my transport should be an extension of my personality. And this is like my little window to the world...and every minute's a different show. I may not understand it. I may not even necessarily agree with it. But I'll tell you what I've accepted: just sort of glide along. You want to keep things on an even keel, this is what I'm saying. You want to go with the flow. The sea refuses no river. The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure while always arriving. It saves on introductions and goodbyes. The ride does not require explanation - just occupancy… We're in motion to the ocean. We are not land locked, I'll tell you that."

Don't shudder. I don't think it's really all that inconvenient. For one, the delay is one heck of a buffer.

Anyway, just want to tell you, my blog's finally up and your's is one of the few blogs linked.
