Life is a long, wondrous and continuous introduction to yourself.

The act of creation — it leads me to unknown places. Only to make me realize that all was known, always. And yet, I live every day with the hope that I’ll explore, create and grow into someone new. Because what’s life if not a long, wondrous and continuous introduction to yourself.

In this journey, music lives by my side. I find melody in my writing, and a lot of writing in my melodies. Sometimes, I hear songs in the bubbles of boiling tamarind water. Or in the stroke of red paint over the canvas. Or in the giggles of a child after a good joke. Tunes find their way even into my boredom, curiosity and the thoughts in between. And a rhythm taps into my sorrow, so it can take the leap to laughter.

Such is music. Such is life — yours and mine.


Unidirectional life

This is a Russian Compass that once belonged to a man who was more than just a human being, more than just a soul, more than just a life. He was the guiding-light for many and in some roundabout way he passes on his wisdom to me, today.

This antique piece belonged to my late father-in-law. I have never met him but I think I have known him for as long as I have known his son.

Such is life. Always moving towards death, making us live even more. Sometimes beyond a deadline.
