Dancing With The Clouds !
Sometime in life you are greeted by a moment, that overwhelms you. Today, I want to share my story, and a journey I covered, a tale of hope and dreams and of rejections and despairs. Friends who are close to me have seen me live through these phases. Writing a book was never a whim for me, it was something that I always wanted to do for my father, whom I lost when I was 14. Today he is not here, but I am sure he is watching me.
All through the journey, I have lived two different phases. The first phase, the first version of the story was swift and easy, and had a dreamer’s voice. Everything felt magical, I was in great flow and completed the manuscript quickly and remained excited like a child. Yes, Life felt like a dream and then reality hit me hard. The rejections jolted me. Sad and frightened, I remained quiet on the shore, afraid to take the plunge. Many doubts echoed in my mind. I still remember those frustrating days & gloomy nights. The story began to fade and I wrapped up.
Few months passed and until one day, a new hope sparkled: Let me give it one last try. Gathering some courage, I began to revive. I began to understand the value of discipline. I opened my mind to new learnings and the quest grew deeper. I rewrote the Stories. The new characters began to evolve and the book finally found it’s voice. I learnt that every setback in life is a new chance to grow. This entire experience humbled me.
I cannot make any claims, for it’s only for the readers to decide. I am still learning, but all through this journey, I remained honest with my intention and sincere in my efforts.
‘Dancing With The Clouds’ teleports you to a land where imagination unfolds, where birds long for love and companionships, where the whimsical clouds are the story tellers, and where the stoic boat challenges your beliefs and fears.
