Blog, More Than a Four Letter Word

Dear Stranger,

Right now , I’m walking down to memory lane, looking back at my “last December” while sipping my huge mug of hot tea. This month marks my first blog anniversary on WordPress.

A comforting companion when words wouldn't come out easily, cheers to my first year!

A comforting companion when words wouldn’t come out easily, cheers to my first year!

215 followers to date, 30 posts alongside with everything that came to stay and went away.  All of it meant to recreate me and not to make me whimper.

Partly, the reason I created this blog pulled me back to that particular sphere of my adult life; a reckless bum holding on to creativity and chasm. God knows how misplaced I felt that time. If not for this four letter word called ‘blog’, I haven’t found myself.

For the countless encounters I was in upheaval against myself, this blog has always been a relief. Whatever heavy feeling I had encapsulated inside, somehow lightened after a blog post. Even uplifting if readers comment or more significantly empathize to the random ruckus I’ve written. Thus it is simply reminding me that we’re not on a solitary take with life. We’re all in these shared struggles and fleeting joys!

“The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”                             ― Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

This blog has also been a creative venue for the inspired days. I couldn’t imagine living life without writing a story or taking a photo, or musing about a poem, or quoting a book, or ruminating on a song or merely recounting a happy thought. That would be a life robbed from the beauty it has been entailed, stripped from the infinite emotions humanity could all tangle with.

So to everyone who has been part of this blog, “thank you”. It’s more than just a four letter word, I think it’s sharing artistry, emotions, love and life all along.

Blogging allows you to be whimsical, reality can be overrated.

"You are always the best version of you."

“You are always the best version of you.”

2013 is fast approaching, what lies ahead is but unknown to all of us. I’m looking forward with an optimistic outlook and always on the try-out of becoming better. I might as well keep this blog, this special thing between you and me.

I’ll see you again.

 Always,

Ninay
