Order is good. Mostly. It makes sure that the earth will go around the sun
in the same way as it has in the past and bring summer to ripen the
mangoes. Patterns are good too — most of the time. They help us find our
shoes easily among an array of other pairs.
But if we stick too much to the same order and pattern, we lose. We lose
the opportunity to discover new lands, new paths, new flowers, new ways
(and new words!).
PS: The post has been lying in my account since I last edited it on January 22, 2009 at 9:42 am. Chances are I started it the same day.
It’s incomplete, but since it has been a year since I did any changes to it, chances are it will stay the same way for years to come. Thought, I might as well publish it just as it is in that case.
A very Happy New Year to all…
