Tik Tak Tik Tak

Leave your footsteps in the "sands of time". But never "snows" of time. Why ?

Because sand doesn't melt ?

Because sand is more hospitable to life ?

But isn't snow allways cleaner than sand ?

Well, I left mine.

May be because time flows like sand (you know the hour glass thingy)and hence the analogy. And yes snow melts and leaves behind a lot of slush. But leaving a footprint....that's all that actually matters. Doesn't matter where.

One reason could be that more peole are likely to encounter your footsept on sand and follow you rather than on snow. Reminds of Vipasana meditation where they teach how different sanskars are deep rooted differently depending upon whether they are on rock, sand and yes even water.

Late on the scene, but have to say that the "Housewives are expensive" post merits a Nobel!

@m - great explanation. thats what I was looking for.

@hiren - you made me think that perhaps I should have taken a different shot - perhaps a long shot of a series of my footsteps up that hill. Interesting that you mention vipasanna. I've been wanting to enroll in Goenka's class for years now.

@a_fool_on_the_hill - I'm noticing some remarkable differences among my friends as we progrss along our career. Friends with a working mate are much more likely to take career risks like starting a company or going back to school. Both education and risk taken are directly proportional to rewards achieved. I am sure we will soon see the vast difference of wealth among the two types in my generation.

What if its cold enough and the snow turns to ice with your footprint preserved for posterity in a place where the cold never lets up? Sands keep shifting you know. Clever!
