Memories and Mirages

This space is just another medium for me to articulate whatsoever goes on in the sometimes crazy, sometimes calm mind of mine. It’s all about –

the Past – everything that is over and done. The time of my life that, as of now, has become Memories…good or bad.

Beauty of a wave’s life
made up of low points and high –
memories of the past.

the Future – which seems like a promising land, an oasis…but there is always a possibility that it might turn out to be a Mirage.

Mirage of oasis
boosts the dying hope of survival –
dreams of fine future.

the Present – well, what about it? Every time I write about something it’s either gone in the past or is by far just a dream. So present is never captured here in this space.

    The updated “about” has told about the naming. Still not knowing you, some orphan readers like me ( 😦 ) are keeping on reading ur writings more and more….

    For any cases, I have liked the updates 😉 We really don’t have that ‘present’ with us.. every time I do something– it becomes past… think something, for the future!

    You are rocking Titaxy 🙂

    there is not much about the blogger that is really worth talking about :D…that’s why :-)…and i’m v thankful to have readers like you who keep coming back… thanks!!!

    You gotta break 🙂 And come back when you are ready with the definition of the ‘present’…

    since yesterday is “Memories” and tomorrow is (could be) “Mirages” hence today is a gift of GOD that is why it is called “Present”

    liked it? You can use it…copy rights given 🙂

    lol, Nu thanks 😀

    Beautiful words and they give your blog name such an identity because of the meaning you have attched to it.
    I fully agree with your explanation for present.
    If we started blogging about the moment we will never go beyond ‘so I am blogging right now…’- and thats hardly ever the case, its always either memories or mirages. You are so right.

    Thank you so much, TnD…

    Memories and mirages – beautiful name 🙂
    What if I hv not said it all this while but hv been reading u for so long – am saying it today 🙂

    Thank you thank you… 🙂

    Noice! 🙂 [That’s ‘nice’ with an Aussie accent] I have never told you this but really like your blog name…it has a very nice ring to it. Can’t really put my finger on it…but it kinda evokes hope and nostalgia at the same time…

    You know, I can’t believe you actually said this…hope and memories (nostalgia) were the two things I was working ard when I was trying to come up with a name for the blog…Thanks!!!

    A lovely thing. Sometimes I feel people expect your bio-data in the about page which I think is pretty boring. But this is really nice.

    i find it too hard to write abt myself…so this :D… Thanks!

    The blogger is awesome!! Nice Misty! 😀 😀

    Describe the pics T !

    don’t the pics talk for themselves? 🙂 every little thing from the flower i love to the ice cream flavor i binge on :D…

    yea, the second row first image, i see as Chalks….but maybe I’m wrong…..BM, it’s color chalk pieces, right?


    • #13 by BlueMist on December 29, 2009 - 4:57 pm

    nice. now another haiku and we are done with “present”. C’mon you can do it. 😉

    😀 that’s set aside for the future 😀


  19. #21 by Judith on May 4, 2010 - 7:24 am

    This is nice, your past…memories, then your present leading you on to your future.

    🙂 Thanks and Welcome!

    The title is very apt. Memories and mirages!! they are similar in that both are ethereal yet they are so different. And the header image couldn’t have been more complementing to the words. Light and darkness together and coexisting! One signifying mirage and the latter memory. This is such a nice and commendable artwork! 🙂

    Thank you for such kind words. You made my day 🙂

    Welcome to my space!


  21. #23 by Priya on June 15, 2010 - 7:31 am
