What do you do when you’re not writing? How do you reset and return to this dashboard, refreshed? What do you need in your day-to-day life to maintain balance: Running? Yoga? Gardening? Painting? Cooking?

I consider myself an artist; both in my work, personal life and hobbies. I love to create. I need to create. It’s my outlet, my way to vent all those thoughts that swirling in my head. A day without creating is like being buried under the ground in a coffin, alive. Whether it is painting on canvas or a room, a garden shed or a fence, making a new bed for vegetables, digging a new flower border, rearranging the furniture or making my own custom jewelries and sketching outside; as long as I am busy creating something new and beautiful, I’m okay. But don’t make me sit still, in the house or in a cafe/restaurant, I will be dead in no time. 

Another thing I do (which you probably all know by now) is taking long walks and photography. I rarely go out the door without my pocket camera. One never know what interesting things one might see out there. Walking is as essential to my well-being as water and air, I cannot live without. Not being able to roam around means a bad day to me. Unproductive one. And there is nothing that can drive me crazy than having a day without being able to move and create.

I cannot exist without exploring new terrain/frontier, seeing/discovering new horizons, watch/observe people and learning… Learning new exciting things and absorbing knowledge. I simply need to reinvent myself over and over again, hear other point of views, expand and evolve so, I have constant inspiration for something to write. New experiences bring new materials and infuse fresh breath/ideas into my writings. Life is my source of inspiration, my muse, the core of my works, my art…

  1. Lovely post. You captured how I often feel. I rarely go out without my iPod. I can’t function without music. Sure, writing is what I devote time doing but music is transcendental. It is raw. Enchanting. Primal. Beautiful.


  2. Wonderful! It sounds like you have a very busy and happy life. I love to be creative as well and fill my days with different activities. It’s good for us to explore our world as much as we can.


  3. Hi, a great post. You are very inspiring, I too like to create, and love new knowledge and ideas. What comes across is that you are making the most of every day of your life. Wonderful.


    1. We all live on borrowed time. The older we get, the more that becomes apparent. My illness strengthens that fact so , what I’m trying is making the most of what I’ve got left and enjoying the process at the same time 🙂


Be memorable. Say something unforgettable.
