Tiny little speck

Filed under: life,My Musing Moments — Cris @ 18:24

I am just a tiny little speck.

A camera.

I am walking. And the focus is on me, entirely. Me, myself, my problems, and my life fill the entire picture – the whole world seems to be just that.

But move the focus a bit farther – take it to my surroundings. I am part of the surroundings. There are others around me. The world is not made of just me and my problems – there are others and their much bigger problems.

Move the focus further away. We move to the city, to the state, to the country, to the continent, the world and I become smaller and smaller till I am a tiny little speck – no! Much smaller! Microscopic!

The problems around fill the world so much that me or my problems don’t seem to exist.

I am just a tiny little speck.



  1. :(…yes…i am just a worthless little speck…

  2. You said it right.
    When we understand the problems others have, our’s appear too small.

    It was a nice post. You are awsome..
    In on word the post was “Jabardast”

  4. this is one of the reasons i love the metro city life.
    one walk down a busy road, and you can just lose yourself in the huuge crowd.
    i love it. it humbles me. n makes me feel like im some small part of a biig picture.
    nice! 🙂

  5. hi Cris,
    so you get sombre too !
    this was contemplative yet it gave a serene feel, like slowly waking up from ‘sudarshan kriya’!
    yet, i somehow love the hihi Cris!

  6. @nithin, oh-oh err cheer up boy, its ok its ok. We will err give you complan?

    @Abhilash, thanks :-). More than understanding others’ problems, I meant accepting it. Realising how everyone and everything fits into the picture.

    @vishnu kutta, ini enthaakaan!

    @usha, wow that was well-put. It is fun isnt it??

    @idiot of indian origin, hehe thanks I think I too like myself better that way!

  7. Marvelous.
    Thank you.Felt so happy reading this(may be because you used the C-word (camera) and the F-word(not the usual one 🙂 ) to describe the idea)
