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.


The End of a Start

Screenshot - 01142016 - 11:01:10 AM To write 250 words a day, every day might sound like a plan. But it's a hard one to keep. I finished the first draft of my first novel a few days ago. I am at least 2 years away from it being a good read but my start has ended!

The process involved 2 workshops and a training that was part of the research for the story I wanted/want to tell. The 19-month period also comprised a 7-month burnout, when I found it hard to write and the only way out was to write. Irony?

I am glad that time healed me and helped me get to where I am today.
