Musings of Mine (3)
Quote of the day:
The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places. -Ernest Hemingway
1. Broken Shadows
There was a swiftness to the winds. On some nights it comes in full force, like an army trying to penetrate a durable fortress, even the well grounded trees sigh during the onslaught. Distant memories can sneak up unannounced, and on this occasion while out walking on a gloomy evening, it didn't disappoint. I was lost in thought for what seemed an eternity, seconds became weeks, and minutes turned into months. A contortion of time and space, of the past and present. Sometimes, all we are left with is broken dreams and shadows.
2. Grocery Invasion
The other I walked into a grocery store, a normal occurrence no doubt. I'd gone there not because I needed milk, tomato chunks or fresh bread, or some other random item on my list -I don't do written lists by the way. No, I went in because the store was there. I was compelled to go in by some unforeseen rope wrapped around my thoughts which pulled me in. I walked around the aisles touching an item here and there, and staring at bargains. After what seemed like ages, I gained control over myself again, and walked out with no item bought. I did a grocery invasion and the skies didn't fall.
3. Your Identity, Your Existence
Names can be quiet interesting. I am yet to meet anyone without a name, or an alias, forename and surname, and hey throw in a couple of middle names to make things more interesting. What's in a name you may ask, well everything really. Its powerful, as everyone recognizes themselves by their names and usually have a strong attachment to it. Your identity, is your existence.
