Stop-Gap Measures


There are some things in life you dread. There are some things which become imminent as time passes. Then there are lost chances. And inadequately-taken ones. And then there are glimmers of hope.

Sometimes when it’s all or nothing, you have to be prepared for an ‘all-for-nothing’ eventuality.

Things don’t strike you as and when they happen… it’s only on subsequent reflection that reality, or more often than not, perceived reality hits you hard.

Sometimes ‘this too shall pass’ is what sustains you. ‘Wait and watch’ is what makes you await new tomorows.

I think I reflect too much these days, and write too many unclear posts. But then, I can’t get clearer than this – I don’t want to commit to paper what I hope is a fleeting situation, and make it more real than it is.

After all, it’s simply stop-gap.
