An idea struck me at work while helping a friend. I was in the middle of something and could not take the time to pin the words down. Through the day I wrote and rewrote it in my mind. Finally in the middle of making lunch the next morning, I translated part of it to words. I played with it in bits and snatches all through the day and eventually at the end of the day in a fit of frustration sent it to Sneha of Sa – She Speaks. Back home, I shared it with K and warned him that I felt it was incomplete and not quite what I wanted to say.

Has this happened to you when you think you have this germ of an idea you want to act on. It hounds you all day and finally when you do act on it, the result is nothing like what you had envisioned? Sometimes I hold back and hang on to it a while longer in the hopes I can make it better. Other times, I let go and mourn the death of a good idea.

Or let it be for what it is. A rambling narration of thoughts trying to express an idea and leaving the reader to make sense of it. Hop over to this on Sa if you want to know what I am rambling about.

I know! I know! It’s almost weekend and it shows.
