Thankful Tuesdays #29 – A few memories

Written as part of 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge which I’m attempting this year.


My Favorite Memory

Week 29 – Thankful Tuesdays

How can I choose a favorite memory? Over the years, there have been many moments I’ve cherished and love to recollect. Each is invaluable to me. The rains bring back the memories of childhood, my sister and I riding our bicycles back from school, trying to reach back before the rain becomes heavy; or the aroma of freshly made appams or vadas wafting over from grandma’s kitchen. There are memories of graduation, recollecting them I can even remember my vision blurred by tears. There are memories of the college fest; organizing the gaming section, dancing with my classmates on the stage and then playing antakshari on the two hour trip back home late at night. There are memories of getting my first salary, buying cashew sweets to give to colleagues and friends as treat. There’s the time I first started blogging nine years back; asking friends I got from this wonderful world to guest post on milestones. If I had a time turner, there’d be too many memories I would try to revisit. It’s a blessing that I am not able to choose just one, I think. I’m thankful for that, for each of those moments that are now a cherished memory.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  2. Ah. Memories 🙂 Each one is special, whether they bring smiles or tears.
    Off topic, but I wonder if a time turner would replicate the specialness of each moment too 🙂
    Maybe. Sometimes it’s best to let a memory be just that, magical as it may seem. Perhaps they seem magical because they are memories? 🙂

    • It should, but we wouldn’t be reliving it, just watching ourselves relive it, so it might only be as special as watching it on a DVD perhaps? 🙂 I’d like to imagine that a time turner would exist that’d make us relive them. Hope it happens, Usha.

  3. nice walk down the memory lane! small events sometimes become such important memories! I wish i had a time turner too!
