Brevity - my mantra for 2009

Brevity, they say is the soul of wit. Ive also realized after 3 and a half decades of experience that it is also the soul of happiness . So, my mantra for 2009 is going to be brevity - economise not just in terms of material wealth , but in terms of expressions and emotions as well..Hope I do succeed.

The new year mantra

"That which is creative must create itself. " I had closed my eyes for a few minutes for a siesta and my mind suddenly threw up this quote . Many years ago, as a student I was fascinated by this line, spoken by my favourite poet, John Keats and often used it to sound academic .

My mind pushes my eyes to be open and shoved sleep away as I wondered..why did this line spring itself in my it suggesting a way to reinvent oneself from slumberland ?

"That which is creative must create itself."
