Today I Learn… I make a point of learning something new everyday. This is what I learn each day

The moment, the memory, catch it now or lose it soon

“How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?…
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?…
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?”

I have found thoughts fleeting in my head, which, if not caught instantly, disappear faster than they arrive, leaving no clue at all.  Isn’t it true with everything? Nothing stay long unless we make an effort to pin it down. It is more so recently than before. Perhaps it is because of too much information flying before our eyes. Or perhaps it is a sign of early onset of senior dementia, which I hope not.

That’s why there is a saying that goes like this, the worst pencil is better than the best memory. This is why I keep telling my children to commit it to writing their agenda or plan or list of action or tasks.
