Writing 101,Day15: Take a Que- “Without music, life would be a mistake.”~Friedrich Nietzsche

Posted on

I totally believe in what 

Friedrich Nietzsche says-  ” “Without music, life would be a mistake.”

I can sum it up in following words~ 
 
Music is life, music is therapy,
Music can make every one happy,
Music can drive  woes away,
Music can drive illness away,
Music is life, music is therapy,
Music can make every one happy,
Music can drive  woes away,
Music can drive illness away,
sing,  sing, sing all the way
Sing in the day sing in the night
sing in the darkness sing in the light
sing when you are sad sing when you are happy
sing when your mood is snappy
singing just not drives ills away
singing drives the sorrows away
sing when alone, sing when together
sing when it is good or bad weather
sing in fright sing in delight,
sing songs together and never ever fight
sing,  sing , sing all the day
sing,  sing, sing all the way
Sing in the day sing in the night
sing in the darkness sing in the light
sing when you are sad sing when you are happy
sing when your mood is snappy
singing just not drives ills away
singing drives the sorrows away
sing when alone, sing when together
sing when it is good or bad weather
sing in fright sing in delight,
sing songs together and never ever fight

 

If you don’t believe me,
and  need some proof,
just ask my buddies,
dear meow and woof.

 

I equally believe in

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

— Marcus Tullius Cicero

but will write about it in another post, some other time.

Writing 101,Day 14- Recreat a single day

Posted on

Thirty years ago a Monday night changed my perspective about life completely.

I was with my two children, daughter 9 years old and son 7 years. My husband was out of station.

On Friday I had met with a friend who promised to visit my house on Monday.

On Saturday I got the news that she was burned to death while preparing dinner for her family.

It was the third case of death by burning in my life. My school friend then my sister-in-law and now this.

On Monday morning I woke up with a start. She was supposed to come today. The whole day I was thinking of her. I did all chores as if in a daze.

I was unable to sleep at night. Frankly, I was a bit scared. What if her soul comes?

I have always been scared of ghosts and spirits.

Children were fast asleep. Oblivious of my condition.I was perspiring profusely. I was thirsty but not able to get up and drink water.

I think when we reach the breaking point our conscious takeover and start reasoning.

I thought why I’m afraid of her. She was my friend. I loved her. She will do no harm to me.

I gathered courage, got up and went to the balcony. Sat there in a chair fully, prepared to welcome her soul.

Slowly I was becoming calm. I dozed off. The night passed quietly. Nothing happened.

The morning came with a new perspective. I was relieved of my fear of darkness and ghosts.

 Do ghost, witches,  demons, angels and

Spirits really exist

Or, are they figment of imagination

Your faith is their strength

The reason for their existence

If you believe

They are everywhere

If you don’t

They are nowhere

Writing 101- Day 6&7- A space to write

Posted on

“Ideally we’d all enjoy Virginia Woolf’s proverbial room of one’s own, with a door to close to ensure uninterrupted writing time. However, for many of us, this just isn’t an option. But a lack of writing space should never keep you from writing. With a little determination and some creativity, you’ll always find some way to work.”~ Ginny Wiehardt

A Space to Write

In small apartments you can’t afford a luxury of your own space for writing, peace or calm environment.

You have to share your computer, computer time and space with whoever you are living with.

After sometime you adjust to even this.

I mostly do my work mentally. Thinking, rethinking, and editing everything goes nonstop in mind between cooking, cleaning or whatever house hold jobs you are doing.

Mind anyway never keeps quiet so why not use it for this purpose. It’s for the final draft I use computer.

In my two bedroom apartment, one bedroom is my husband’s writing space and in another I have set up a table for my laptop. This table sometimes is used for ironing clothes also.

Only problem is uninterrupted time. For this I had to select night time when everyone is asleep and I can write without interference.

I personally believe that if one is full of ideas, have full grasp on language and passion for writing then space, time and environment never poses any problem.

Any place and time is perfect for writing only essential thing is a commitment to writing.

Writing 101, Day 4- Window

Window- A Door To Freedom

‘My window is a door to my freedom’

So she thinks

Sometimes

When depressed

Freedom from all her woes and problems

Though it takes a lot of courage

To end one’s life

Her mind wanders away

Searching for an excuse

To drive away from the negative thoughts

She thinks how she would look

Lying down there

All dismantled

Drowning in her own blood

It gives her a fright

Her courage lefts her

Wisdom seeps in

It reminds her

It’s not a nice way to die

Without fighting

No problem comes without a solution

Life is beautiful

Don’t waste it like that

Everyone loves a fighter

Not a loser

Don’t give up so easily

Count your blessing

It’s enough to change her mind

silver line

The sky was gloomy,

Dark clouds hiding the full moon

No stars to follow direction,

No shore to be seen.

Loneliness added to the apprehension,

Helpless, hopeless, hapless

With no strength left

Unable to fight.

All hopes were gone

I resigned to fate.

Suddenly I saw a smiling face,

Mother’s face

Full of encouragement,

Inspiration and assurance

As if saying

“Do not worry my child

Be patient

do not lose hope,

Believe in God and pray,

Everything will be fine

As behind every cloud

There is a silver line.”

And I saw the moon

Emerging from the clouds

Blogging 101,Day Nine- Get inspired from the neighbor

I was going through Friday Fictioneers hosted by- https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com for 100 words fiction stories.  I was inspired by lingeringvisions, and taking a cue from her I wrote this story.

Friday Fictioneers: What Race are You? “I am Green” said the Moth.

“““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““

End of Dispute

The green moth was  hurt, ‘What do you mean by which race?’ aren’t we both moths.’

The other one said-‘ No, Everyone has a race to be proud of.’

Seeing the moths fighting to prove their superiority,

the on looking bird intervened.

‘Stop fighting you, two morons!

‘A moth is a moth is a moth.

Colour or race makes no difference.’

‘Sit side by side and let me inspect closely and decide which one is from a better race.

They did.

The bird gobbled them up, smacked its beak and said ‘ you both are fools but delicious, no doubt.’

Writing 201: Trust

Posted on

Writing 201: Trust– Day 3 is here — and so are questions of trust, acrostics, and internal rhymes.

 

I learned from my pet,                                                 ma14 (2)

How to love without affectation,
Trust without calculation,
Friendship without discrimination,
How to get adulation without manipulation
To forgive and forget without reservation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Love, trust, compassion

Synonymous with friendship

True friends are  a bliss

Weekly Photo Challenge- Texture

Texture

Texture is most evident where dark meets light on the turning edge and at the outer edge. Experience has taught us to assume that the areas in between have similar features. (Rex Brandt)

Little moments can have a feeling and a texture that is very real.
