The seeds you sow
About a year back, I advised someone who was contemplating withdrawing from the first marathon he’d registered for, to go for it. “There is no shame in starting and dropping out”, I’d said. “But if you do finish, you will remember that event for the rest of your life”. Today, he thanked me for it on a public forum.
The deeds you do are like seeds. Once they scatter, you don’t know what happens to them. Most fall on barren ground, or are trampled underfoot. But sometimes, some take root and grow. And when that happens, you can feel proud.
This is the fifth year that I am going to be a part of NaBloWriM. The writing mojo seems to have deserted me, but by elaborating either on a quote that touches my heart, or by attempting to capture a fleeting emotion, let me see how long I last.
