‘Who am I?’ I find myself wondering. Every time I find myself questioning who I am, I delve into old photographs, looking back at frozen moments in time. A fresh-faced younger me, caught in a slight frown in a candid picture; a younger me posing with a favourite book or smiling next to an old…… Continue reading In Search of Identity
The flint stones were struck The fire began to roar Then reduced to a crackle And then burned no more All you can see are the grey powdery ashes The only evidence left today Of how our paths crossed And ended up far, far away. Tried my hand at writing something darker than usual today……… Continue reading Cold
Real friendship can be many things. It can be minutes, hours of comfortable silence with no words said or left unsaid. It can be just a presence, just the comfort that someone is there, and that they care even if they can’t understand. It can be laughter, and love, and being you, unapolegetically, completely you,…… Continue reading Meeting A Friend Makes For A Good Day
I haven’t blogged in quite a bit, what with college assignments piling up and writer’s block, but inspiration always strikes when you’re pressed for time, doesn’t it? 😊 I have a dream – I’d love to go on a trip without letting anyone but my parents know. I don’t know if it is because of…… Continue reading “I’m gonna pack my bags because this great big world is calling me.”
The last two weeks have been confusingly hectic. Suddenly being forced to accept so many changes was rather hard for me – the bewilderment of being in a whole new environment, trying to find new friends at college, having to accept that I don’t have as much time as before, and feeling the days slip…… Continue reading My F.R.I.EN.D.S Taught Me…and Miscellaneous
Tomorrow is the last day of my holidays (76 holidays to be precise, says the Thomson in me). As I look back on them now, I think they were pretty fun. It was a vacation of firsts, really – I did so many things for the first time. I held a guitar in my hands for…… Continue reading Holiday Lessons 🙂
A while ago, I came across a comic strip depicting a man asserting,’I want happiness!’ The other man in the comic strip erases the word ‘I’, saying that it stands for ego/selfishness, and then the word ‘want’, that stands for one’s desires. The only thing left in the speech bubble is ‘happiness.’ It is quite…… Continue reading Happiness Is Within You (Part Two)
So it’s a brand new year with a whole lot of possibilities round the corner! My New Year resolution is not so much a resolution as a reminder, a phrase that I hope to carry with me every step of the way, and not just for this year. I say hello to fearless growth. I’m…… Continue reading Hello, 2016!
Sometimes, I plan something so wonderfully complex and grand that when it actually works out as planned, it just falls flat. I don’t feel as satisfied as I thought I’d be. This, as I realized today, is because the joys of life are etched brighter in simple things. When we keep it simple, we don’t…… Continue reading Keeping it simple, silly!
I’m confused as to whether I must look into the past or into the future. Things are constantly changing, and I doubt if I will ever be who I was a few years ago. People who were predominantly present in my past have changed too, and I doubt if I will share the same connections…… Continue reading I’m in the Middle
