“LOVE… it surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be.” -Khalil Gibran
Staring at the dashboard.
For a long time.
No words seem to come out.
Looking for inspiration.
That creative juice.
I’m convinced writing cannot be forced.
It has to come naturally.
Natural is but normal?
What is normal is dictated by norms.
Should there be norms about writing?
Writing is an art.
Art is an expression.
Expression is action.
Action can be edited.
When something is edited
Does it change reality?
Reality can be deleted.
When everything is deleted
There’s one last option –
Restore it from the Recycle Bin.

Happy Oktoberfest! I mean, October first! :P
I thought, for a change, I will share a poem. This blog has a page for “Poetry” but nothing has been written. I have a collection of poems that I opted not to publish because I may be too shy and not ready for public scrutiny ;). It is in my undisclosed blog where I write stuff that I cannot share with the public. For the time being. Let this be, an exception :).This was written for someone, whom in so many ways, with little time, have touched my life and have affected what I have become now. I wish you joy from here and beyond. Until we meet again. xxx
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves”. – J. Muir
It took me a month before I was able to compose a letter. For this context, come up with a post. I couldn’t reconcile what title I would be making of: “I was rejected by the US Embassy“, “An Open Letter to the US Embassy“, “For the very first time, I got my visa application rejected“, “I Hate You US Embassy“… The latter seemed most fitting for the disappointment I was feeling that time. I knew I was not being rationale. What hate would do? It won’t change the situation. Moreover, it’s a plain waste of time and energy. It’s past. It belongs to the past. Move on.
Once I accepted it, I felt relieved. What’s left are learnings. Continue reading
