More than two years ago, I had started a blog called ‘thedailycognitive’ which was focused on poetry, daily reflections and literary musings about food. For close to more than a year, I had not written in it.
2015 and 2016 were trying years during which I experienced an even more violent turbulence in my mind which severely affected all my relationships, as I was forced to requestion my understanding of God and hide behind a lie with regards to my job. I was forced to make changes to my identity as well. ( I still am)
At the end of 2016, my sister and I decided to start (Art)iculate Culture, a medium whereby which we could travel the whole of the world through Art forms. Setting a time frame from all that travel was supposed to be a fuel to power us ahead.
However, eventually, we found that taking just one week to travel a country through Art was too short. Forcing ourselves to leave one country and head to the next during the following week, took away the peace one would usually get from travel. A stagnation in writing occured as we tried figuring out what to do next.
In the meanwhile, this year, I had a compulsion to get back to thedailycognitive and start writing my daily artistic reflections.However, I have been locked out of my account and no measure seems to get me back into it.
Instead of letting the rules for (Art)iculate Culture control me, I’m going to simply use this blog for Poetry and Reflections too.
With regards to travel, we shall head to a country when the mood is right.
Thanks for everyone’s support 🙂
