இலையின்றி கிளையின்றி
உயிரின்றி நின்றது!

'பட்டமரம்' என்றார்கள்!
பாவம் மூடர்கள்!

அது உன்
பார்வை 'படாத மரம்'
என்பதை நான் மட்டும் அறிவேன்!

காலையில் ஜாதிகள் இல்லை என்று பாடம் கறபிப்பவரே
மாலையில் மாறுவதன் பெயர் இயல்பு?

எழுத்தில் மட்டும் - திருமணம்!
மனமெல்லாம் பணம்! :-(

Money has no memory. Experience has...

Money has no memory. Experience has. You will never know what the total cost of your education was, but for a lifetime you will recall and relive the memories of schools and colleges. Few years from now, you will forget the amount you paid to settle the hospitalization bill, but will ever cherish having saved your mother's life or the life you get to live with the just born. You won't remember the cost of your honeymoon, but to the last breath remember the experiences of the bliss of togetherness.

The first time you balanced yourself on your cycle without support… The first time she said 'yes' and it was two years since you proposed… The first cry… the first steps… the first word… the first kiss… all of your child… The first gift you bought for your parents and the first gift your daughter gave you… The first award… the first public appreciation… the first stage performance… And the list is endless… Experiences, with timeless memory…

No denying that anything that's material cost money, but the fact remains the cost of the experience will be forgotten, but the experience never.

That is an excerpt from an article that I recently had the opportunity to skim through. How true! I hope that strikes a chord in you. 

Now that might answer some people's question of why I dont mind spending on anything that I see as a need/want. Saving is a good habit, yes! But not at the cost of losing the NOW, because tomorrow I'll forget how much I spent for this and that, but the fun I had yesterday, that will remain to cherish! 

I shall save even lakhs for later but can I play a PS3 or Xbox when I am on an armchair at 60? Even if I can, what's the fun in not playing now! :-)

Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life!
