The Journey Begins

People say writing is easy. You sit on your ass and write about whatever stupid thing crosses your mind at the time and get paid for it. They laugh at me when I say I’m a writer. “Writing is not a real job”, they say, “find something meaningful to do with your life”. How wrong…

Manipura

There’s this thing that burns inside me, turning my insides into ashes. The scream for a change is deafening. How could I have ignored it for this long? All I did was muffle the sound and continue living the days in agony. Not that anything really hurt, but I ignored my internal voice. And I…

Quote of the month

We all sorely complain of the shortness of time, and yet have much more than we know what to do with. Our lives are either spent in doing nothing at all, or in doing nothing to the purpose, or in doing nothing that we ought to do. We are always complaining that our days are…

A big, bad wolf

What a gloomy morning!! Yesterday was sunny and warm and I was looking forward to spending some time in the courtyard today, reading, bathing in the sun, but when I looked out the window it was raining!… So, I made myself a ginger-lemon tea and went back in bed. After my meltdown, I took some…

The Truth

What does Truth mean? Is it a feeling? Is it a fact? If we look it up in the dictionary most definitions state that truth is the quality or state of being true, real, honest, genuine. Therefore, truth is not relative or changeable. It is something justified, objective. It exists and can be proved. What…

Meltdown

I’m such a mess, again. Having a meltdown, again. Everything inside me screams “Just do something with your life! Something meaningful!” I want to write more, read more, travel more, learn more. Would that be a meaningful way to live my life? Would that bring me satisfaction? Having a full day job and, especially, working…

The reality of death versus the meaning of life

We live our lives as if we were immortal. Either that or we’re completely ignorant of the oblivious reality of death. We get into our daily routine and, week by week, time passes by until we get to a point in life when we ask ourselves were did all the years go? Are we living…

Changes in the weather

After only two days of full spring, sunny, warm and with the air filled with the perfume of snowdrops and hyacinths, winter came back with its ruthless blizzard and pulverized the smiles on everybody’s faces. Somehow my insides feel the same. Once calm, serene and happy to have taken the decision to begin my search…

Dark

This night is starless and my thoughts are dark. The light’s fading out from this stranger’s eyes that looks at me through the dusty mirror. A weak voice is rising from the corners of this tired mind. It says that it will all pass, with patience it will all pass. Let yourself be carried further…

Why are we even alive?

I feel very tired today, tired of the world around me, tired of people, I’m tired of talking to people and listening to their stories. Sometimes they are interesting, but sometimes I’d rather not know. Their lives are full of drama, bad choices or just bad luck. A woman fights against the system for a…
