Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.
August 22. “Button, Dost pointed out a very important observation to me yesterday.”

August 22. “Button, Dost pointed out a very important observation to me yesterday.”

“Tell me.”

“He told me that I should not do anything hurriedly. I knew exactly what he was trying to say. What I do very often is try and finish a chore or job hurriedly only to feel satiated that I have accomplished that job or chore and it’s a closed chapter. One should do whatever job or chore one is doing and savor every second and not do it hurriedly to finish whatever one is doing. It’s very similar to tasting a dish where you would savor it to get the real taste.”

“In what context did Dost tell you this?”

“He said this in the context of signing cheques that are sent from the office. In the context of writing my diary entries—I write an entry each day. What Dost suggested was that instead of making one entry every day, I should write a few at a time which could prove to be more interesting, perhaps!”

“May be he has a point. Why don’t you test it out?”

“May be I will. Someone sent an interesting mail a few days back from George Carlin, a comedian in the 70’s and 80’s, who said something very similar. He said, among many other things, that ‘we’ve learned to rush but not to wait’.”

“That’s so correct. Most of us run from pillar to post trying hard to finish what we are doing and fail to enjoy every moment. Even if one is sitting and not doing anything should be an enjoyable act.”

“Who is privileged to sit around these days?”

“That’s exactly what Dost and Carlin are saying!”
