MetaCognitions | Thoughts at the Age of 53

Happy birthday (sorry for the delay)!

The Call of Troythulu

As I reach the age of 53 this morning, I consider myself lucky indeed, to have lived the experiences I have, to learn the things I’ve learned, and to have met the people I have, both in real life and online. But one thing has always been lurking on the background, and that’s frequent self-doubt as to how good a friend I am to others.

That self-doubt, engendered by my failure to keep in touch with many of those I’ve befriended over the years, was a major cause of the several-month long inactivity on this blog starting in November of last year.

Part of the cause of that is my . . . condition . . . that results in a frequent, totally nonsensical and irrational desire for solitude, even with full knowledge that human interaction of some form is absolutely necessary for my psychological and physical well being.

writing on heaven’s walls…

Read Between the Minds

i had planned
to sing
a merry tune
for you
to raise
your spirits
from life’s despairs
but
i could not find
one rhyme
while
words
of hate
fill the air
like
summer cicadas
nestled in
a nation’s darkness
so
i sat here
pondering how
to overcome
these barren thoughts
and
as i did
i saw one finch
join in song
with another
then
another
and
it was as if
god
had provided
the answer
we
must join in song
in a chorus
that defies
darkness
to usher in
the
new day’s
light

Before you blindly trust your bot that corrects your grammar! ;p

I was copying and converting a piece from pdf to word document, and see what I got! I tried thrice to run the grammar check so it will accept the spellings but it seemed to be in the mood of “red” today!

Just wanted to share this hilarious piece of misinformation with you 🙂

Taking Liberties

The Mojo Collector

Can love survive death? On its fading to the quiet and the still. Stubborn loneliness becomes its only possession; its will wounded, but not broken. A silent lake, surface dull, no rushing of wind or agitation of flocks, no echo or reflection. Yet it holds ground.

Taciturn by nature, Nazer Marić had gone silent after the deaths of his parents and sister. At least to those around him. He had never spoken to me much, and I felt he blamed me more than Richard or Louis for what had happened. Evil could just not pass through carelessly like that, wrecking utter devastation, destroying his life, without accountability. He used his biases to throw off a fraction of his bottomless rage at the horrible fate he couldn’t escape onto me—foreign, female, bent on corrupting Enesa. For my part, I had as much insight into his humanity as I had knowledge of…

I love writing, painting and reading can you help?

Let me share a little stuff with you, which is not a secret, due to some ugly people I cant go out and work like luckier people (in my dictionary)! I have been bullied into staying at home by some really filthy and dangerous people since 2007, but I keep trying to do something which will earn me my bread, I am sick of exploiting my younger brother’s generosity!

My latest attempt is creating a profile in patreon, till now it is serving my purpose, it is allowing me to pile up my money in their account because I don’t have a fully active bank account, that is, my bank account DOES NOT ACCEPTS FOREIGN CHECKS AND EFT OF ANY TYPE! So the only way you can help me is via my patreon account, by becoming my patron!

What can I do in return of your generosity?

Well if you spend $1 (every month) there I will upload Agnishatdal there every month, you can download it from there.

If you spend $2 every month you will get Agnishatdal and Agnijaat in above-mentioned process.

If you spend $3 You will get the Ezines and a book of stories Agnimalya.

If you spend $4 you will get the Ezines, Agnimalya and another book.

If you spend $5 you will get a piece from my upcoming book!

All I can offer you is my creativity!

If you become my patron there I will be able to write, paint more and read your blogs a little more regularly, because I will be able to stop worrying about marketing of my own works, that will save a lot of time! Believe me!

Will be immensely grateful to see you there!
