Moving on.....to a new blog :)

Well, I tried! I really did. But with my current work schedule and more than that, with my current stress levels, maintaining this blog doesn't seem like an easy thing anymore. For me, the desire to write or 'creativity' ends when stress begins - as simple as that. Every time, I open notepad or even think of writing, I draw up a blank. I believe, writing requires a fertile ground not a rock surface solidified from centuries of disturbances. Yep, it seems so - my brain is solidifying everyday! I wish I had remained a student....taking each day as it comes, not giving a hoot about career or uping someone else or what have you! But the choices I have made have landed me here and ...I jolly well deal with it, right? Right! So here goes.... am moving on. :)

Moving on to a new blog!!!! This time, a photo blog :)) I think that one would be more easy for me to maintain. And it would still serve as a medium for me to communicate to this world. So on 29 Sep 2005, I 'solidified' the thought into action and created one. Here it is - Small Traveller. Do visit!

BTW, starting Small Traveller doesn't mean am ditching Melange. On the contrary! I will continue to write here - but more sporadically...even more sporadically. On the days when there is a strike and there is not much to do in office- like today. On days, when I feel like sharing a poem that floated into my mind.....on days when I feel like smiling more often! But on other days, since I would still want to write but incapciated to, I will post a photo on Small Traveller - maybe photos to match my mood or maybe photos to say a story!

Alaho!

PS: Why a photo blog? Because I love photography. I realise photos are a poor substitute to reality or words but they do serve their purpose in bringing up long-forgotten images to the front of our brain. Moreover, how can I let my brand new digicam sleep inside the cupboard? It better earn its worth!

I'm feeling bad to know that you became a puppet in the hands of situation :(....Just don't yield to it and kill your creativity, your writings, your beautiful thoughts.

Empathising with your stress level, i can just wish you that you will overcome it and come back to "Melange"-your dreamchild.

All the best to your new blog :)
