Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Nothing to Say

Dark Wind At first this was going to be a post about not limiting oneself by the boundaries imposed on us by society and the media. I.e. to go out there and live our lives as we want to, not as the world around us wants us to.

I paused.

I was going to write about the weekend, and our problems with the electricity at home, and all the mess that is happening. That would be complaining, and I’m not in a complaining type of mood.

I hindered.

I wasted to write something positive, something good that has happened recently. Nothing crossed my mind.

I need to improve my style of writing. I have been relaxing way too much.

Another pause.

That is all.

The dark wind brushed against my face, prickling my cheeks. The scarf kept my lips and neck warm. I felt the cold wind mixing with my warm wet breath with every puff. The inside of the scarf felt a little moist. I turned my face gently towards the dark wind, a gust burned my eyes, a cool burn that made my eyes water. A tear dropped not out of sadness, probably not. There, I saw it. Glowing in pitch black darkness. It was vaguely round, morphing with every stroke of wind that hit the surface. Disconnecting and connecting, glimmering in the distance. There it was, the moon upon the sea.

    Hehehe

    Writing reflects your current mood. Don’t force it. In this modern time there are no rules that bind your words other than grammar. Don’t get fooled that fancy words do the trick – as long as your words are from the heart this is all what readers would get from in the end.

    I like how you describe the senses in your writing. Takes practice to tune it, which I should be doing myself too.

    KJ,
    Thanks man I appreciate it.

    Laialy,

    Missy,
    You actually inspired me. I used to write better, somehow that diminished over time!

    Just write and don’t worry about the post.. let yourself go.. you should see how my writing style and habit always shifts.. I used to have long, detailed and somewhat strange posts.. sometimes I forget to post at all.. but at the end of the day.. it’s not what I post and how it is presented.. but it’s the fact that we doccument things and when we look back it’s there to recall.. in it’s original form..

    whatever D !! 7ady tefalsaft adry :P

    DiiGMaa,
