I come to this thought after seeing so many reboots and remakes and retellings and all those 're-'s out there. Of all them, the one that led me down this path of thinking was the possible Harry Potter reboot (which I might probably watch if it happens - any excuse to return to Hogwarts.) But … Continue reading Is Creativity Dead?
A few years ago I wrote down in my journal, 'To hear a whisper, you must be close.' This followed a passage I had read (that I can't remember at the moment) but that thought always returns. You must be close, in time, in distance, in relationship. I've been reading 'Whisper' by Mark Batterson. When … Continue reading The Quiet Spot
Some days I could be on my bed, trying to sleep or read a book and the little voice in my head will go off 'you can't concentrate till you chew something'. Or going through my day trying to work and I will feel so unsettled till I get it. And I won't care how … Continue reading Try to quit other bad habits too…
The promise of January was a lifting of all the lockdown restrictions and I probably looked so much to it, I forgot to think of what that might feel like. Like how I get a little antsy when people get so close without their masks... It's hard to believe that less than three years ago … Continue reading Easing back into some ‘sort of normal’
First Writer’s Wednesday of the year. (And hopefully it will persist with some bi-weekly consistency.) I had the pleasure of listening to some of Elizabeth Gilbert's interviews on writing, and I also read her book 'Big Magic'. I liked her wit, especially in the interviews and perspective on what writing was to her. One thing … Continue reading The best writing advice…
Hello there, I hope your December is picking up steam wonderfully. I came across this post and thought I would share this too. I really really like what was written here. Especially as we take inventory of the year. What worked and what failed. And what we imagine the next year should look like. I … Continue reading Untitled🤷 (Repost)
When is the right time to start telling children about money? Because I'm constantly thinking that I came to the conversation quite late. Like an active participation. Because I don't think you can make it beyond five years with no idea of money and how well it smooths life over. And at this age, it's … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week: Conversations I should have had.
Pick up your pen and paper, its time to relearn our ABCs and 123s. In fact, use a pencil because you might need to erase more often than not. Because new information is always being unearthed. I mean you probably lived most of your life thinking watermelons are red or pinkish, only to find that … Continue reading Advocacy: The space to unlearn and relearn
One of my favourite scenes in The 100 Season 1, because I'm yet to go beyond Season 2, is when the ship lands on Earth and Octavia is offered the first step on earth. She steps out and doesn't go out in flames and she screams, 'We are back, b*****es' and then Radioactive by Imagine … Continue reading 5 things I learnt…or remembered from being offline.
Welcome to December (even though you've been here for enough days already). A few more weeks and we call it a wrap on this year. We are outgrowing 2020, even though it is mostly inevitable. Days roll into months, then into years and we find ourselves in the next thing - willingly or unwillingly. This … Continue reading Outgrowing spaces
