27

In the coil of years, you return and return to the interval when you were born one cosmic wrinkle at at time and consider its significance. A measurement of 365.25 days, a calendar date notching the progress of a life. Gazing backwards, you wonder at your youthful proclivity, and question the wisdomgained if any, o mortal Janus, squinting into the shrouded future in a futile effort to haphazard your path. Where am I going?ย  How did I get here? Why, of all these days, do I have to think this today?

  1. Z, Happy birthday!!!
    Well i think bd provides a backdrop for us to examine our life more closely because it is a marker of our life if you will. So it is only natural that we ponder the direction that our life takes us or rather the direction we take for our life. As you may know, Socrates said “unexamined life is not worth living”. But then Mark Twain said “The unexamined life may not be worth living, but the life too closely examined may not be lived at all.” So live the life to the fullest without trying to analyze too much. ๐Ÿ™‚ But introspection definitely is needed at times. You would agree.
