Old pictures and the past.

I live in the past. I always have.
I feel its the past that keeps us sane - you look back at the things you did, right and wrong, at the moments that made you who you are, at the decisions that took you to where you are now.
That's why I treasure photos - they are a story of your life. People often ask me why I keep taking pictures every now and then...I get it - live the moment than waste it taking pictures...but keeping a memory of good times is equally important. Yes, your photos are mostly your good times, but isn't that what life is about...a story weaved out of happy moments?
Today afternoon was spent looking at old memories... I cant tell you how thankful I am for these pictures!
Preserve your old albums please. Go through them when you have the time. They mean so much, especially when you have lost a loved one.
I guarantee it will bring you peace.

Update - Live a little more, care a little less.

This is interesting...blogging has become so deserted these days. I was thinking the other day that I dont write anymore which led me to check out other blogs, some interesting people I used to follow on blogger. I even remember waiting on some of these blogs where I used to wait for fresh updates, perspectives and learnings. Sadly now these "bloggers" (including me) have become twiterratis and long deep blogs have been cut down to strong opinions expressed in 280 character tweets.

I do miss writing though, looking at the day gone by and making things "profound" enough for the the world to read.

On a completely unrelated note to the above and just to jot down some updates where I last left this blog, I decided to pen down something.

Life has moved.

I feel more responsible now,always something or the other running through my head, almost pressured to achieve what you set out for when you started.Its funny that I always imagined how I would be at late 30 something and I am equally amused that even though its nothing like I imagined, I can now definitely relate to a lot of things you expect when you get to this age - the responsibilities and expectations Life has from you around this time, my friends, are "killing",to say the least.

 Dont get me wrong, Life right now is not all bad - it has its fun moments, success and high points, friendships you can count on and family whom you feel most close to at this age. But yea...there is always that slight tinge of a feeling that keeps asking - if given a chance wont you want to go back to the old times and your younger self? Live a little more, care a little less.
