I’ve been meaning to blog a bit after a while, especially after my talented friend and gem of a person, who is now an unemployed lawyer, started to document his year off travelling.
Here is the honorary mention Mr.Bootwala, follow his blog -> https://bootsintransit.wordpress.com/
He’s in Thailand right now upto hopefully good things. Follow his journey.
There are quite a few very un-lawyer like posts. *cue excitement* I’m glad you’re out of the office and on this journey buddy!
Anyway it’s been a while since my last post which was on the 5th of last month. Ah! time, the ever so elusive construct that eludes eternally to bring wisdom in the end, if not the feelings of transient emotions – being soaked entirely present within a single moment. I’ve been known to drift even in moments to landscapes of thought processes and random questions, existence and all. Anyway, that’s all that exists, you, your brain experiencing it – the now. Seriously, time is a little bitch. But for better or worse, it turns out alright in the end or you just have to believe that, I guess. *You are not to blame for… because we separate like ripples on a blank shore.. in rainbows… dedicated to all human beings* – Radiohead “Reckoner”
First song. Hit play on this one
If ever there were two entirely optimistic Radiohead songs it would be “Optimistic” and “Reckoner” for the ‘It’s ok pat yourself on the back and go about your day’ feels
It’s been a good month and a half and a even more stellar quarter.Picking up musical instruments was perhaps the single best decision I’ve taken in the past decade. *lots of really disastrous ones*
That, along with getting clean have been transformational/inspirational/life changing although I must admit to a slight binge in late March but I’m back and sober now.
I’ve got loads of plans, but unfortunately business hasn’t been that kind, but hey it’s going on and I’m waiting to set up my home studio to make some beautifully devilish music that resounds with me and travel a bit.
I’m starting to get tunes floating about randomly in my head and I can feel this is just the start. Ableton classes are the next step, all in good time.
There’s plenty of music I’ve uploaded on to #BOMBEATS and you can check it all out here in this post.
That’s the thing you know, life is simple, just enjoy it, every moment – bitter or pleasurable. Just enjoy it. The journey, the destination, the self-discovery, go after what you deem important, there is no starting point, there are no set times to achieve or do this or that, take your time, go on your way, become your true self, devoid of external influences(people, things, success whatever) and stop to dance to the music. Enjoy it. Ah ! another weekend – Rejoice, we have no choice

Remember to breathe deeper, smile a bit more, worry a bit less and trust the process that is life.
A couple of quotes to end it? Ok here.
And here is a poem I wrote yesterday
Take care you all!
Personally, I’m eagerly waiting for Roger Waters’ album “Is this the life we really want” which is out on 2nd June. So, see you until the next post!
