A technical glitch becomes my muse.


This project isn’t new.
In fact I have long been busy with it and still have a long way to go…
There are still a million details to refine.

The whole idea was a sheer stroke of luck.
Our printer was nearly out of ink and the result was this amazingly hazy, blurry work of art…
On paper.

A technical glitch became my muse.
Our printer, despite itself turned what could’ve been a more or less ordinary idea into a punch of genius.
In an instant it had taken a whole new dimension.

Today, looking so very closely, I continue detecting, along the work (which often needs a magnifying glass) so much movement in what appeared at first to be a soft, romantic, vague looking image.

This “failed” print I notice, is a host to so many nuances, shadows, blurry, ghostly, ephemeral expressions…

And it lies in every stroke of this ongoing project.
It is very precise, nothing is left to chance.

Yet, it would have gone unnoticed to my eye, if I wasn’t so busy with its minutiae.

Beautiful blogger award nomination


beautiful blogger award

I’m deeply honored to have been nominated for the beautiful blogger’s award by Nettrobbens,  I always enjoy reading her post you should check it out!
I’m quite overwhelmed and have no idea how I’m meant to write but I’ll try my best with the points I was given as guide lines, three things I’ve learned about writing,Three, about reading and one about life. That shouldn’t be too hard 🙂

1. So, first is about a muse.
To find my creative muse, is finding more than a best friend, it’s discovering my inner-self, my better-self, and my soul. I feel complete.

2. Second is about grammatical rules, can they be bended?
If my character is one who doesn’t speak the language properly then, it would have a purpose and in that case, yes.

3. Third is once you’ve written a piece of work, you’ll never read a book the same way again.
Today, I read a book with the appreciation of someone who has toiled over a word, a sentence… I am thankful for reading a book that is on a level, a book I can learn something from, that  transports me to a place that is totally new to my universe. I avow, I am currently more critical  than prior to my writing.

Now, three things I’ve learned about reading.

1. Biographies are a wonderful means of measurement…

I love good biographies! I read one a few years back, about the Russian great soprano Galina Vichnevskaia, her life story was fascinating, reading her book gave me tremendous amount of historical knowledge, I finished the book feeling my mind had stretched out, that I had gotten a lot out of it, which is what I look for.

I usually like my characters to be human so, I’ve never exaggerated them but I don’t have that much experience in writing, I might think differently about the subject in a few years time 🙂

2. Second, readers like to read about someone who life spirals down and comes back up.

I prefer a romantic book that’ll have a build up with a slight bit of drama but I like the poetic, reflective, philosophical style, might sound boring to some, yet, to me it means I can unwind and allow myself to ” soak ” into fantasy.

3. Third, for a writer, other people’s books become textbooks.

True enough, it does! It’s the best practice ground. You learn and grow through them, it’s the gestation of your own creation.

And last but not least 🙂 one thing I’ve learned about life.

It is hard to pick up that one thing, there are so many I have learned along the adventure…

Well, the one that seems at this time the most important is, what I’ve attained through the method  of Byron Katie. To live in the ” Now ” . It is usually  the best we can do. It prevents unnecessary worries, it simplifies life and splits it to the mere nanosecond.

I am surprised to have truly enjoyed answering those points and thank you for nominating me, it’s a true ” pat on the back ” thanks!
