Now, having kind of settled into the blogging world, I find it to be much similar to a black hole of cyber space.
The enormous thoughts and ideas that it sucks into its behemoth gravitational centre is astonishing. The more a person spends time here, the more he is deluded. I find ideas and thoughts echoing all across, but also these ideas and thoughts have precedents.
Having read several blogs, I find the true expression of the self, which wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. Several blogs have memoirs, origination from some level of unconscious, but turning into perceptible subjects once written, helping the writer know himself better. I feel I too need to write memoirs and identify the true nature of my existence.
I remember, my childhood was spent speculating how it would be to be grown-up. In fact I was so obsessed with growing up that I don’t remember much from the age of 10- 15. When I think about it now, I feel it was this enormous desire to be taken seriously. I wanted to be treated as a mature, grownup man by anyone I knew. I guess every child wants to be treated as an adult.
I wonder if I really took time to enjoy my childhood and growing up. A large part of it was spent worrying about exam results and performance in the unit tests. I wish I was given another chance at growing up, and to feel the real essence of childhood and stages of growth into that forbidden realm called “Adulthood”.
I feel a major difference between a child and an adult is that a child asks questions and an adult simply learns to overlook things.I remember me, exhausting my parents with innumerable “what is this?”, “why is this”, to a point where I was made to understand that asking too many questions wasn’t the right thing. Probably the entry into adulthood was a certain acceptance of things as they are.
Now, being an adult and into the core of my life, I have come to realize that if all questions were to be answered, a whole established system of norms would be turned on its head.
Ciao friends, Let’s keep the child in us ALIVE.
