My life is a work of art.

My life is a work of art.

Yes, it is…. God’s and my own. The mould and clay were his work, while shaping it up and refining the edges were mine. His was the larger base that I could fine tune and work on. It’s been an interesting experience. Some areas turned out well. In some places I made mistakes that I had to correct. In some others I created some irreparable damage which led to regret. I found that this took the artwork into hidden and deeper realms which may have never been otherwise explored.

This has given more depth and meaning to my art and made God’s work more complete and fulfilling.

Though my mistakes have cost me time, health and money, it has added tremendous value and character to my artwork.

Every line that’s out of place and every twist and turn shows the labor of love that’s been poured into it. I can return this gift to him with the joy of having used what he gave me. Knowing I have played with it, shaped it and moulded it as best as I could. I would return it as a complete work of art, filled up with my love, my work, my energies. Not as a bland blank mould of clay returned as it was received. My effort would be the difference.

Introduction to my Blog

I write. I am not a writer. I write to clarify my thoughts, I write to remember ideas, I write to capture the stream of words and sentences that pass through my mind. I write to honour the messages that sometimes pause to visit as they flow along my consciousness. 

Since I write to enjoy my writing, which I read and re-read numerous times, I hadn't seriously considered having a blog to share with others. Until my intern, Nandhini, recently invited me to organise my writings in a blog that she offered to put together.

My blog is about me and my world. I write when I feel like. I like to follow my heart and do what I like to do. I love the beach, I like painting, I find my work fulfilling, I love meditation and chocolate. I love sunshine and open windows and I love my home. Life is rewarding when I engage in that which I really like t do, absorbed in what I choose to do. 

So here we are, blog and I, with writings old and new. I wonder how this blog and I will engage with each other. I wonder how absorbing it will be. I am curious to explore and see how we reveal ourselves to the world. I wonder how much of myself will get revealed to me. I begin now.
