Time Travel

This was supposed to start a long time back, but for some reason or the other, I always put it off, though the change (or rather shift) of time has not done much to change the general mood, so it really doesn't matter much. It's just that I now can't keep the things inside me, and so this is it. Well, nothing deep or grave...I was just thinking about the human tendency to go back in time and remember the 'good ol' times' (and I am NOT even remotely referring to the new show based on past life regression,which is the latest 'hot' thing on television these days). I have been in such a state of mind for quite some time now (you can say months) and have now begun to wonder if others also are, at least at some point in their life. The memories simply refuse to leave me. I don't know why, but I still think of those days- bright summer days spent in gay abandon(well..not really-deadlines were to be met;but yes, definitely with a lot of fun)in a secluded place, dotted with loads of eucalyptus trees with as many antennas, and situated right near one of the most crowded cities of the country. I don't know why I go back to those days-is it because of the novelty of the kind of work I did, or the people whom I met there ? Probably both...seriously don't know. Whatever it is, I simply can't forget that magical one month; maybe these social networking sites are also to be blamed- they simply can't let you forget a person whom you want to forget the most. Just when you think you are fine and fresh and raring to go, thinking that you have convinced yourself with great effort that it simply was not meant to be ( just shoot the distance in between !!), the memories come back to haunt you. And you cannot even ignore them- those wonderful lime smelling, breezy, starry-eyed memories. You will not forget them in your entire lifetime. I wonder if it is like this with everyone. I don't know why God forgot to make the delete key (perhaps He was too boggled down and foggy eyed after six days of the hard work of creation). I wonder how people erase it all. I wonder if it even happens with other people. If anyone has succeeded in making that extra key in his/her keyboard, please let me know.

Bye for now.
