The Solution

The grand solution to all our problems lies in the human race comprehending the concept of time.

I can prove it, if only I could spare the time.

Fracturing time may have been the biggest human error of all times. Could anyone not agree with Plautus when he condemned that “wretch who first . . . set up a sundial in the market place to chop my day to pieces.”?

For now, enjoy my favorite painting – Dali’s La persistencia de la memoria

persistence of memory.

    Have you seen Goya’s ‘The Dog’? As evocative a painting as Dali’s.

    Hey Surya,

    Why so silent?

  9. Surya says

    Have no reason really. Was traveling for a while, and couldn’t update for a long time. But now I am back, time is not really an issue, and have even been writing, don’t feel like posting anything anymore. Guess it will pass. or maybe not.

    Anyways, hope you are doing well..thanks for still visiting..:)

    There is this called ‘Faster’ that takes a look at what we have done to time. Have you seen it? Did I miss the Venice pictures or you didn’t post it?

  11. Surya says

    Hi Mridula, what is the ‘faster’? sounds very interesting – is it a book?

    Nope, you haven’t missed the Venice pictures. Have been constantly on the roads last few weeks, and I have so many travel pics to process! Coming up soon! :)
