an explantion

i have begun a new chapter in my life, a new line of work...new beginings are scary but if there is one thing i have learnt in life, it is never to shy away from the lessons that life is trying to teach you, its pointless...life will chase you down, clobber you on the head till you give up and finally teach the lesson it is intent on teaching you, so you might as well enjoy your class. its never really that bad, it all depends upon how you choose to view the situation. the same story can be turned into a comedy or a tragedy, it all depends upon the screenplay you write for it. for this reason i have not been able to post lately and i don't know if i will be able to do in the future, i am just not getting the time and often i dont have access to internet. however for some weird reason i can't bring myself to totally abandon this space nor say a definitive goodbye...i wonder why...perhaps it is because i can put down those thoughts, here, which i can't even bring myself to speak of.

i miss reading my favourite blogs...i crave them...dont forget me and if anyone wants to write to me, you can do so at gulnaz.sheikh@gmail.com
hopefully i will be posting every now and then so which ever gentle creature ambles by this space, god bless you and thank you for reading me and spending time here.
sometimes life gets so busy that it doest leave you with enough time to be with your own thoughts enough to distill them into words...but the lesson i'm learning is to be mindful of the moment, amongst other lessons. i hope i learn my lessons well just as i wish success to my fellow travellers.


wish me luck. wish me success.

love...a warm gentle breeze feel it slightly lift your hair...and think of me.

I know exactly what you are going through Gulnaz! You explain it so well! I've been having my own personal problems and challenges, but things are beginning to settle down. As you know I haven't updated my blog in almost 4 months now but I'm hoping to soon.

I hope you get to share with us more of your poetry in between, even if it is only little by little. Best wishes to you in getting things sorted out :)

ayesha- hugs to you too!!! :)) and i'm yet to have 'fun'...;) hope you are having fun...am missing home too...but its a learning process essentially, something i need to learn, i guess....:)))

sweet anon- you make my day!!! its just that with my new work, i'm not getting much time to dwell on things and such and then i dont have regular net access and that is why the lapses in updating. as i said i miss reading my fav. blogs and i miss the writing part too.....

i'm told that i should publish stuff from here and i dont know how to go about it.....

whoever you are stay this sweet and warm person who motivates people with the sharpness of his/her intellect/words....

take care

I like the "clobber you on the head" part...

Keep writing...we never stop reading you.

Gul: its not about you putting up the stuff over here. Keep writing for your sake. This is such a sacred obsession, when one is so much in sync with one's self; sometimes when i look back, i feel they are like the only true snapshots of your existance; everything else is ephemeral; but when you read these thoughts you relive all those moments and with lot more subjectivity as compared to pictures! Isnt it!
you can publish it whenever you find the time;
All the best for your endeavors!
