I wake up with many questions. I get the answers for some and the rest remain unanswered. With every answer I get, a new set of questions pops up. And I sleep with this whole new bunch of questions.

In and out. Deep and wide. Black and white. Yes and no. Up and down. Good and bad. On and off. These are just a few.

There was a time I was used to this. I used to spend a lot of time thinking of the two extremes & excitingly enough, I found countless answers only to uncover multifarious questions within the immediate next blink. I’m not exaggerating. This is what used to happen inside my mind.

I could sense all of this with my hale and healthy photo-receptors, ears, olfactory sensory neurons, some 3000-odd taste buds, and the whole myriad nerve endings all over my body. Aahhh, screw this. I do this even now. I make simple things complex and complex things simple. Let’s put it this way. I could sense all of this with my eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin. That’s it. It is that simple.

For the urge to write more and more words till I feel the need to use lesser and lesser words, I’d love to cheer you along with me in this. Have a simple, yet complex life which is complex but simple.
