There isn’t time.

There isn’t time, So brief is life. For bickerings, apologies, heart burnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, And but an instant, so to speak, for that. – Mark Twain It has been a perfect day. I am writing this untitled post like so many others I have written in this lifetime. I am enjoying a set of burning candles beside me. It’s like Diwali to my right. On the left is a bit colder view. It’s raining against the windows in a slanted fashion. The windows are open so the curtains are moving with the breeze.…

Can you trust the water?

Written on July 23, 2015 It has been a few years since I made the decision to learn swimming. Few years ago, I had started taking swimming lessons and found myself going absolutely nowhere with it. Looking back though, I have come very very far. Long long time ago, the thought of water had scared me. “The waves will come and take you with them” is what the voice in my head would say. “You will drown and die. Just like that.” But I had always watched people swim. They always looked so cool. Ever since I was little, I…

My Summer Love – Sun-Kissed

Originally, it was just an idea. To make the best of this summer I mean. How? I had no idea. All I knew was that I love the hot weather, the greenery, the clear skies and that somehow I needed to make the most of it exactly where I am. As I was drying myself in the sun by the pool one day, I realized something: I was sun-kissed. All the small steps taken to make the best of this summer such as going to the park, watching the sunset, riding the bike, listening to the live concerts, watching movies…

My Summer Love – Art in the Park

Art in the Park is a public event organized by our public library and it conveniently happens during lunch time every Friday. I had seen it before and had wanted to join. Then I saw how it was full of kids and had changed my mind. My thoughts were stopping me but the thought of spending an hour creating something with unlimited amount of colours in front of me had excited me. I had forgotten about it all though until I saw it again last Friday. Kids were there again and so were their mothers. I finished eating my lunch…

My Summer Love – Dear Sun

Dear Sun, You are quite rare up here, you know. There’s parts of world where people feel like roasted chicken. They could use less of you there, you know. You could come up here more often instead. We do love you too. 🙂 And the clouds? Uff, why have you guys not made friends with each other yet? Always getting in each others way. If you could stay and the clouds could get out of your way, it would be so warm. Warm like “so hot” for others and warm like “I can finally take off my sweater” for me.…

My Summer Love – Summer Sunsets on the Lake

The best part of any summer evening is the perfect sunset that embraces the sky with its beautiful colours and reflects on water to show you who you are and what’s on your mind. Sunset for me is a time of reflection; a time to drag myself out of my couch, out of my apartment, to the lake – where God awaits. During this time, I am braver than normal, more honest than normal and much more comfortable than normal. Most importantly, in the comfort of different colours spreading throughout the sky like wild fire, I am calmly and comfortably,…

My Summer Love – My Summer Manifesto

Ever have the feeling that summer comes and goes and you have no idea what you have done? I have been through that a million times and that’s why “My Summer Love” series was integral to recording how I have lived through my summer. On top of that, I found a cool idea of creating a summer manifesto and list down what I want to accomplish in this awesome season. The original manifesto template was created by ruthpclark and you can download it on her website but I modified it to fit my own needs. Anyways, without further adieu, I…

My Summer Love – The Grab and Go to Park Summer Package

Life has been fairly cool with awesomeness of sunshine upon me (hehe). Even in good weather, it can be quite difficult to convince yourself to go out and enjoy the sunshine. That is why, I have created my Grab-and-Go-to-Park-Summer-Package. LOL! The idea is simple: just like it is easy to eat something that you have already chopped up and put in a box in the fridge, it is easy to just grab a bag of things that includes everything you need to relax and do your work and go to the park. I mean, when near the north pole do…

Love is Forever

I often say that love is forever. It is not something I think about or question; it is something that comes right out of my heart with so much determination that it breaks through every single doubt. Love is forever….But what makes me so sure, so certain? Million relationships make and break every single day in different parts of the world, how is it that I believe that love is forever? How is it possible for love to be forever? Contrary to the popular belief that in order to have love, you must have people around you, I feel that…

My Summer Love – The Church Bells

I really love my bike. One day, I decided to take my bike to work and found out mid-way that my tires were almost flat. After work, I went to get the tires pumped but did not succeed. Disappointed at having wasted my dollar, I went back home and decided to try it again another time. A few days later, I made the effort to drag myself out and try it one more time. And yayyy, I was finally successful. It was finally time to explore the world. As I biking around the neighbourhood, I came to a complete stop…
