being

every little thing has a consequence and sometimes they don’t go the way you’d like. somedays you meet a stranger in a tea cafe and there is a shift from one end of the spectrum to another. other days you cling so rigidly to what and whom you are, so very sure you are, that you let a precious thing slide.

but when the moon shines on the bough of the tree outside my house and the porch looks ever so inviting, i can’t think.

and the third of the greatest forks so far fades until there is no choice at all.

being what you are and who you are is no choice at all.

  1. Third fork? Does that refer to not having to make a choice?

    Isnt not making a choice, also making a choice?

    • Pfft. These deep thoughts are beyond me.
      And I doubt that the choice to not make a choice is ever actually ‘made’ with any sense of finality. Because that one is always open to change, is it not?

      • Umm.. I know for a fact that politicians in most democracy’s including India and US are allowed to abstain from voting on a Yes – No poll. So they are allowed to make a no-choice.

        personally, i have made no-choices in my life.

        and sometimes you just decided to stick to a no-choice and dont want to change it.
