Dear readers of Lustrous Lives,
It has been an amazing journey these past three years. I have babbled and you have encouraged me to do so. I have philosophised and you have accepted me as the naive philosopher. I have written and you have read.
You have given me an experience that I will cherish for a lifetime. You have helped me to keep walking in the direction that I think is my life. From checking statistics of page visits incessantly to having an underlying agenda to pocket more and more 'followers', I have done it all in my little lustrous life here. The stats clock still ticks. It shows 9000+ clicks from USA, India, Sweden, Russia, UK, Germany, Hungary, Nepal, Canada and Vietnam. I am amazed just as I was to see the first few clicks.
It has taken me a long time, almost six months now, to let this cosy home of thoughts be as it is, forever. Dear readers, I am letting it all go.
I am moving on to live the passion that has built over the past three years here - my passion for writing, for scribbling incessantly and trying to polish and share it with one and all.I still do not know how I am going to do that :'live' my passion of writing that is. I do not know if I will ever write anything worthwhile. But I have taken this leap of faith. I want to believe I am a writer who can write something that will remain long after I am gone. To really, truly, absolutely believe it, I need to rework my life. I do not know how I will do that, given that I am messy and pretty much live-in-the-pile-till-the-guests-are-to-arrive-in-20-minutes. Still, I need to believe that I can do rework this mess if I want to be a writer.
I have thought long and short of what happens if I live with Lustrous Lives forever. I am convinced that I will have a happy life of companionship and regularity.
But, you see, I am organically a mess in more ways than one; and, I love making new messes. I can't live my writing life in the comfort zone of this blog where every one of you make me feel a writer. I need to step out of myself.
This will be the last post that I write in Lustrous Lives. You are now invited to another adventure at Wordiculture : the new journal blog of the writing self.
Love dear readers
