Track Changes

I was telling R the other day that sometimes looking back, I feel like I lose a little precious bit of myself every year as I grow older. If only I’m spread out in black and white, in a Microsoft Word format no less, what I would do is turn on “track changes”. Then every now and then I could go back and do a little bit of self-introspection, gather back what’s been lost and re-plant the parts which had met with an untimely demise.

Maybe it’s the cynicism of adulthood creeping into my bones. LE SIGH.

Anyway, I end this somewhat depressing post with an equally morose quote by Murakami which I like. (Oh my God, can I get any more melodramatic than this!)

She waited for the train to pass. Then she said, “I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while.”

Haruki Murakami (Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman)
