About things constant, and things that change
You cannot step twice into the same river… These lines played in my young mind as I returned home after school. How is it possible? I thought? That evening Anna (my father) took us to the beach. This was a weekly ritual we always went to the beach on Wednesdays. I told myself, Heraclitus is silly, see I can step into the same sea again and again.
Nothing endures but change... Why then must I assume that my daughters who hate upittu when I make it…should hate it too when we go visiting others?
Why then must I assume that Srini who enjoyed loud humour and noisy banter will continue to do so after 3 years?Or that Veena will always be super woman
Or that Pradeep will always have nuts on his ice-cream
Or that Chiru will always be serious and strict
Everything flows, nothing stands still... And while we live out our moments, while we make new habits we build our character.
And Character is destiny... AND DO YOU KNOW who said all this? Heraclitus said it way back … he lived 535 BC to 475 BC
and they tell me….nothing endures but change.
What he said THEN is true NOW!!! What change??
The inspiration for this blog and this painting came from Anu
