The busy times continue. Perhaps continue with an intensity that i havent known in recent times. Life goes on.

Right next to my workplace is a school, and a block away is a college. Occassionally i catch glimpses of life in ‘that’ world too. Not long ago, i was there, wanting to be a big man. Having the money, the freedom and the gadgets…

And now, i am a big man. The freedom has brought with it responsibility. ( well, i have some money and fewer gadgets ). Already, am not sure if this the ‘big’ man i so wanted to become is worth its time and while. My colleagues laugh at me, and call me the young grandpa, stating that these thoughts come in only when you are 60 !

I beg to disagree ! Life needs some purpose and sense of being. There are those that find that purpose in money. And there is nothing wrong with that. Its just that it doesnt appeal to me !

And then, i read a treasure, which seemed to connect somewhere. “If a man is falling out of line, maybe he is marching to a different beat” !

Well, maybe !

    That really a treasured thought! Priority is different for different people and it’s also in a constant flux for an individual too…. When the orbit changes, Sun is not the same!

    let ppl laugh at ya…but u r truly a rare in this world. Money doesnt appeal to me either, even tho I have it. Life is much more than just that.

    You mirror my thoughts. I keep thinking of all these things all the time and I wonder how others do not think of it. I mean, what I am doing at work now definitely isnt what I always dreamed to be when I grew into a ‘big man’. It seems like such a large compromise that I am doing with my life. Somehow I still hope I can change it someday. Somehow.

    All of us I think at some point or the other get these thoughts. It depends how we take this thought forward….

    Really identified with this… the only thing that holds one back is that everything in life is so intertwined… its like the old saying ‘everything affects everything’

    The quote is well connecting… marching to the different tune..

    Opposite to my workplace is also school, I often go to the balcony and see kids playing.. Reminds me that i have grown big now… and of course freedom bought it with responsibility…
