“Mene mene tekel parsin”

Its midway through the year already…. 2009 has sped by with alarming inerrancy…. And the midway point will soon be reached…….I find myself musing, questioning, probing and sifting through the evidence hoping to find proof that I have indeed focused on the right things so far that will make the most difference when push comes to shove and the bricks fall down as though ripped to shreds by a tsunami of cataclysmic proportions……….The big chronological milestone approaches too, and with it comes a sense of dread – I will officially become ‘old’ in my book – but then on the other hand is some gratefulness for still being alive against all odds….. …… Its  taking stock time here………….I really hope the verdict is not “mene mene tekel parsin”

  1. Hey.. I don't know how old you are but you are definitely not old… old is 80 okay? Be happy that you are blessed, as you said, to still be alive, to be smart, to be awake and alert. Tis all good 😀
    I hope you get satisfied with whatever it is you find out, but remember to not sweat it too much either.


  2. July is going to be my new yr as its my birth month n i'll make d best of the rest of the yr. You'll be fine, u're just looking at ur age from the wrong angle, as long as u feel u're on the right track to ur dreams, just relax n enjoy ur life b4 u're really too old to enjoy it.
