Another eve for cogitation

It’s almost June and the sound of spring is still a little disengaged, the cold is intense sometimes, I really am worried. It feels as though there isn’t much time for anything too, but trivial matters still manage to continue at a tedious length. Talk of politics ambush me on my way to work,  prosaic routine concerns comprise of chit-chat that is seemingly unending about things that are seemingly important, and something impels me to just get on the next available flight to somewhere far from this despondent state of things, and not return. I only want a little warm weather and to know of what will unknowingly betide, I can no longer handle surprises in my life.

But on another note, I have been experimenting with some coloured charcoal and it is an interesting development in my life.20190528_004704.jpg

It is of a particular sky on one eve, but it could very well be daybreak too and that is the beauty of the sky isn’t it? From gold to black to gold, its soft transitions of colours and capricious weather patterns, in the end, it all combines into one disposition. Nature in its essence is a poetic illustration of life: everything ends where it began.

I am allowing some lingering thoughts to surface too, and I wonder of many things and people, there are so many unfinished things, so many things evermore elusive…

        Is sketching or art for that matter, a hobby to you?

        I used to enjoy drawing a lot in the past, but then for many reasons I abandoned it. It was somewhat a hobby, but more as an outlet of some means for me, very different from writing. You can begin a drawing that emanates a certain thought, and continue it on another day to express something else. I recently began to draw again but every drawing stands as a bit of a challenge for me as I am not very good, and I don’t draw as much as I would like.

        That is very true, maybe it’s my predilection for perfection that makes it hard for me to create. Thank you, I find your blog refreshing, I like the candour with which you write. I’m from East Africa, from London, but an amalgam of a lot of places really.

        Well, I can understand that! We all want to put out our best work! And thankyou, but i’m really just an ordinary guy, from india who likes to write. And that is very interesting!
