The first ever entry in my blog.
No pressure, right? There is so much to say. So much to wish for and create and hopefully inspire. I wish myself to be determined and follow the path I already painted in my mind about this website, the hopes and dreams behind it. “Dream big dreams and then make them happen”, a friend once said to me. I thought it sounded pretentious and well, more generic than I cared to accept. And yet it was one of those things that stuck with me.
I came to realize that it was neither pretentious nor generic; it was real. And it gave me a big push too. Big dreams happen to people who believe they can happen and are ready to put their time, energy, and enthusiasm on the line. Wetting my feet today is but the beginning of the trip I now feel ready for. Sails up and blue skies! With some clouds for good measure too. And while I cannot proclaim my love for clouds as they used to in the old days, I will do my best to help you see their beauty together with the beauty of the world we live in.
I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.
For after the rain when with never a stain
The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.
By Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 – 1822) – The Cloud
