Fighting the Block: Part 2

Word: Symphony

Target: Write at least 250 words, making symphony the pivotal element of the prose.

I am still thinking why I chose this word to start writing in order to get out of my block. 

The moment it came to my mind, I started searching almost anything related to symphony, which I can think of. 

Opened YouTube and played Beethoven's 9th symphony that he created with Riccardo Muti, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and chorus artists. I can't explain in words, how wonderful it is to listen to the magical notes that are currently inhibiting my senses. 

In my attempt to know more about 'symphony', I realized that probably it is the most beautiful form to represent a perfect blend, a congruity. The realization that if given their adequate space, everything in this world starts resonating together, and the music that they create is heavenly. 

"Symphony" is the true nature of our world. We are born to coexist. 

How can we exist together if we do not respect every individual around us? 

Anyone or anything in this world is as important as you, me, or we. 

Coexistence is symphony and symphony is melody. We all strive for melody in our life, but we don't know that it is already all around us.

You sitting in the comfort of your house, with your wife beside you, watching your kid play is one of those symphonies. 

Think about the great symphony we all can create by standing next to each other, being there to love, laugh, and grieve!

One great MUSICAL piece it will be, indeed!

Fighting the Block: Part 1

I am fighting a major writer's block since past 6 years. It has stopped me from thinking and writing.

Initially I used to cry and crib about it, but slowly I got comfortable with it and started living my life as if writing/blogging was never a big part of my life.


2011: I used to write occasionally and feel good that at least I am writing something. Thoughts kept on hovering around; very difficult to trap in my word. Still, I wrote some!

2012: I was writing still. Didn't need any event or contest to do what I love doing.

2013: Started looking for inspiration as I was out of my stock. I was slowly getting into that dry phase.

2014: I was lost in the desert. No water around, just a glimpse of the mighty mirage that made me hopeful that I will write again someday.

2015: The mirage got hazy and disappeared. I started forgetting that I used to write once. No need of any inspiration or thought. I was not writing at all.

2016:  Early 2016: Feeling bad about my lost talent. Trying to keep that feeling away. I want to stay as I am. Doing what I do. Going for my regular job, earning a living for my family, and laughing at almost all the things around me. Something is missing here. I can feel that. I am missing that one thing for which I was really passionate. I lost my writing in the short span of getting my derailed life back on to the track. I have successfully made a success out of myself. Now, I have to get along with my passion.

I am trying to break through the wall of this block.

I hope to start writing soon!
