A little project

At times I feel like my life is a dam. Day by day, drops of water fall into it and collects into one big reservoir. But then it gets too much and I feel like this damn is going to explode. Everything just got a little too much for me. I am so very sorry that I haven't been writing in a while. Trust me writing is my passion but with all the things going on, I just didn't think that writing a blog in that time was going to be very good for me mentally. Instead I have been doing something else.

I am writing something. A story to be precise.

This year I took up an elective called myth to modernity. It was a fantastic course that focused on narratives or myths and legends that have shaped today's society. It closely links philosophy and narrative writing. And of course, I loved my teacher. There is always something inspirational about the arts teachers and my teacher was no exception. She is a lovely woman who speaks in a way that whatever she says seems to be a story itself. She picked up my story, read it and supported me throughout the whole planning of it and I can happily say that I am very proud of where it is heading.

Of course, I know its no big deal. I don't know. Maybe I will publish it...one day. But sometimes we all just need a project now and again. For me, it's writing. It takes me to  places I never knew existed within my mind. I used to think that my mind was such a small, two dimensional little world. But words and the beautifully constructed sentences of our language has really allowed me to explore this vast, endless land, all inside a small little human brain, no bigger than a soup bowl.

Actually, I have an idea. I would love to get to know you all a little bit better. So come on, tell me about your little project. If you don't have one, make one and tell me all about it!
