Artist or a writer??

I wanna write books, seriously!! And I wonder am I ready to take that plunge in self expression??

What I know is, I’m certainly ready for my art.. Cuz my art expresses it deeper, without words!!!

So for now, artist wins over writer!!! Unless my books are focusing on art!!

That might be a win-win really…

Three words? Wanna play?

What if you had to describe the crux of your life in three words??

Would you find those three words that did justice to a life that you call ‘yours’??

It was easy to find three words that described the richness of life for me!

I have a list of stuff that makes me happy. And all of the items on the list seem to be connected to these three words.

1. Art!!!

My love for art, is thanks to the depth that it adds to my life. 

I may have not been an avid reader, yet writing has been my saviour: the one that gave me courage when life seemed hollow.

Movies give such an added dimension to life. As if you have travelled the world in the shoes of a stranger. 

Music, plays, paintings or be it any art ! It simply allows us to connect with the creator within. 

2. Family!

If not for my family, I would never have felt grounded to this planet. Perhaps I would be travelling the globe like a nomad who knows nothing of his roots.

My family is my biggest gift 🎁 and every time that I imagine my dreamy life, my family is right there, as if they were an extension of me (n they are)

3. Oneness!!

It’s this deep feeling of oneness that soothed me as I stared at the royal mountains in Auli, or listened to the gurgling sounds of the bhagirathi.. my trip to auli has been the trip that I most frequently go back to in my head n heart..

It’s this same feeling that takes me over when I’m in nature, with flowers or birds…traveling in an unknown country, getting to know the culture of the people there..

It’s like all of us are deeply connected by this beauty of it all..

The night train to Lisbon?

Just watched this movie again, ‘night train to Lisbon’!! There’s so much depth to some stories, that they speak to you in your very own personal language!

Wonder if all writers feel this way that I do, that the character ‘Amadeu’ felt! Life is a journey to one’s soul…the events, places, happenings simply take you closer, a step each time. 

Being grounded lets one feel their rebellious side…the part which wants to fly high, to unexplored lands. There was a time, I desired to feel grounded, safe, secure.. And there was a time I desired to simply fly high, not let my feet touch the ground! And today, I love both cuz they help me appreciate and understand the other better.

Life is indeed beautiful! The best of both worlds. I’ve always aspired to write a book. A book that I initially thought would be my key to money n abundance. I now realize this book won’t address my trivial needs like money or abundance. This book will take me to the very recesses of my soul. If only I let it be. 

For the very first time, I’m letting my thoughts about writing a book, out. I guess my book needs an identity. It wants to fly high too like I once did. 

There’s nothing we can claim of ourselves, everything is changing so fast. The only claim that we may is on our soul that witnesses everything without wanting to hold on or grab any of it.

Cheers to my book. I hope to see you out soon. Not the least for money, but at last to claim my soul!!
