Have you ever sat in your balcony at midnight? Nothing else, but you!! When the night is slowly enveloping this earth, everyone is sinking down to another world. They all are fast asleep. But you are there, under the thousand stars with big shiny half moon hung over your head and suddenly you find peace in that silence. Have you sat and wonder why you are here? As if you have flood of words in your heart to be poured on paper in rhythm or millions of color to be splashed on canvas. Have you ever felt the night is here to tell you secrets and you sit there with the hope your existence will get a meaning and reasons will be found. Have you ever heard a calling? Suddenly you get very aware of yo...
Staying up a bit late is pretty relaxing in a way, it's extremely quiet, I don't have to deal with all the fuss and rush that life has to offer and, while a ton of people are sleep right now, there are also a ton of people getting ready for their day as I type this.
I find myself thinking about different places in the world and what they are like. I was born and raised in the USA and, I have never gone out of the country. Gosh I would love to visit Tokyo, Italy, Iceland or even Australia.
Sounds amazing. Maybe one day when finances are a bit better. :)
I hope you guys are doing well.
Come on Friday...
I've waited two weeks
My bag is packed
Everything I need for a few days away..
God I need it after the last days..
Jump on the train
Leave the worries behind for a while.
My head needs a rest
I just need my escape
A few days and I'll head home....Maybe...
Traveling is like drinking alcohol.
At first, it brings you that bitter taste of exhaustion and kicks of bumpy rides.
You have to develop it's taste by devouring all smooth experiences.
Eventually, you will get high on nature, journey, new people with their unique cultures.
Every place will leave you in it's hangover tempting you to try some more and something new every time.
And slowly, you will fall into abyss of an addiction.. Wanderlust.
As much as you can,
Before our time runs out tomorrow ...

*Movement of You*
It's not all bad, if you can still smile at something
And have a moment of commonality with someone
If you can still talk without fear, it's not all bad
And it's not bad at all if someone listens.
Imagine that? And if someone agrees, well you're ahead of me
And if they agree, well then you've got something there
And if you've got them hooked on every word you say
Well then you've got yourself an army there.
It becomes a movement, just be sure you're aware
That when it's bigger than just you, and you alone
Someone else can lead the way, so take care
Because now you've got a movement of your own
And when a movement moves, you can't control to...
How are you all doing? I am doing fine here I guess 😊😉😁 Have you ever felt a strong urge to travel. You may not know where your destination is but you just want to go out there and be yourself. Thoughts of potential wanderlust!!!
Just wondering? What urges one to travel?
Across the borders
I heard of
a love so rare
as she took
her first breath of love's cure.
Across the borders
the worries of yesterday
wrapped itself into
a final sigh.
Across the border
I felt her dreaming away
her long stretched hands
that could only
hold a soothing
Across the border
she sparked magic into
my bonfire soul–
and our story
unfolded in endless
dreams of light.

This is a rant I wrote down when I was traveling through Ladakh. Road-trips are wonderful for letting your thoughts flow free.
"The life is like a highway. The road is the vessel in which life flows and you the vehicle.
The road has some smooth patches. Flawless, just like the good times or crests in lifetime. There are rough patches too in between. But, they're short and they pass away soon. They slow you down and you may need to 'off-road' a bit to get over them. The road ahead is smooth.
You meet various kinds of people during this journey. You leave some behind, some leave you behind. Some slow you down, you slow some down. Some greet while some keep a stern face. But, we all are ...
Dearest Ethiopia 🇪🇹
I do not know you but will one day. Your vast continent of culture natural beauty is a phenomenon unlike any I have ever seen.
Your people, so regal and uniquely divine embrace their traditional dialect of God's innermost peace has it's language of love.
I long to walk the sandy clay roads from village to village embracing the sun rays of time embracing every moment with my heart.
In time I will travel to you to celebrate with my sponsored child as she completes her studies and prepare for college.
Zebiba of Ethiopia is the future of her country.
Prepare packing for trip.
My heart already fly to there.
Think about what to see.
I am feeling that need again, the pull to get on a plane to anywhere, to get lost inside and out, to be where I am an unknown. To forget my everyday and live someone else's. To be a stranger. To wander until I've found myself again.
I feel most at home when I am not.
(From the series "#DevelopingACharacter")
"I traveled a lot, for places that are physical and also places that exist inside people - discovering secrets of the human nature - in order to reach the unknown, breathing a fresh air that would put encouragement to my lungs and oxygen to my heart. But the fatigue and inability were willing to stop me. I wept deeply until I reached the cliff that stood before the pride I abandoned, only to discover that despite having reached so many places in the world, I had never arrived to the most important atrium: myself".
