Forest

Like every other kid, who is yet to be robbed off their innocence Jules was curious by nature. She would ponder in deep thoughts which were linked gracefully and their sense (was something which) would often become the great and a huge part of the mystery. It was often missing but never really missed. 

Magic lies within

Like a gust of air, she used fly to past, unnoticed. And that must be the reason why she was a pro in hide and seek. She would stand behind the trees whenever in trouble as though it will save her from consequences. Those trees, trails, and that damp woody misty essence which lingered up the place, taught her something much more than the materialistic, superstitious and fickle world can ever know.

Trees and Trails

There is much to gain than to lose

The trees became her companion and followed her every where in the little world of hers, listening to the tales she had to tell. The scent which enchantedly lingered over the place was something enchanted enough to escape one from their grieves. Uplifting the soul with every breath.

The sounds heard when she ran up and down, trailing down those narrow trails would echo before subsiding. With her steps, she went snapping sticks from fallen off branches and the crisp of the dried out leaves.

True Beauty

Forest’s Child

Those trees taught her her to stand tall and face the harshness which the winds and the changing times brought. Taught her to flutter freely like the leaves of a tree in the air. To spread an aroma, an essence full of life, which would go on transforming mind full to mindfulness, lonliness to lonelilessness. This is the force, the power which she inherited from the forest.

Exciting stuff to try during LOCKDOWN

From larp to T- shirt painting:

For those who don’t know what LARP is, it is the abbreviation for Live Action Role Play, which I personally just found out about, recently. This quarantine had led me to explore and stumble upon new exciting stuff in literature, games, and sciences.

So here’s recap of what I’ve came across in sciences, I learned about EMI (electomagnetic induction), and motion dampening caused by induced field. It was interesting to know that owing to these two phenomenas, high speed trains and roller coasters are stopped using magnetic braking system.

I painted a T- shirt with my bitmoji on it, using some acrylic paints. I hope you would like to see cause here’s a picture of it.

T-Shirt painting

And created some character cards for LARP’s sake, even a lease agreement, and hurled some custom clothing.

The process of painting a t-shirt is really calming and I recommend doing it if you are into art. The other thing which I enjoy is cycling.

My Quarantine Art

Now that we have the time to do all that we ever wanted to do, so, why don’t we use it effectively. I too, like all other students have online classes going on. I too, have hobbies. And today, I am willing to flash some of my quarantine cartoon sketches here with you all, to inspire you to explore your creative side.

Together we can bring lifeless sheets of paper to life with a stroke of brush. Explore in the world full of serendipity.

Do you, just like eveybody else in the world, want, to go out of your house? I know this is a common yearning, no worries here is a solution to it. Put your emotions into your art work and you will be able to teleport to places, different worlds of imaginations without even leaving your room. AND DON’T TELL ME IT’S DIFFICULT, cause it’s not.

5 meaningful poetic verses, explained!

Here, I present you with a few poetic verses that have the power to move. Let’s delve in the ocean of emotions without any delay.

1.  Do not stand on my grave and weep. 
     I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on the snow.
    I am the sun on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
- Mary Elizabeth Frye

The poem is deep and has a touching vibe. It reminds us, humans, of their losses. Guides us, to stay strong, in form of a voice. This voice reassures, saying that one should not stand on graves to cry. Rather embrace the different forms of nature and discover its powers to heal. These winds,rains,snow and sun are the elements of universe, often lay unnoticed by our impetuous eyes. This verse has another dimension to it which is beyond delineation.

2.     I wandered lonely as a cloud.
 That floats on high over vales and hills.
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host of golden daffodils.
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
 Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
- William Wordsworth, I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, "Daffodils"
daffodils

The poem is bright and cheerful. The one in which the poet is admiring the nature which is no doubt beautiful. Here, this verse indicates that the poet is as lonely as a cloud, floating over valleys and hills, when while exploring he came across a huge number of daffodils.The view gave him immense pleasure. The fluttering and dancing of those daffodils left such an impact on the poet that even when he is in a pensive mood, the image the daffodils flashes in his mind releaving him of all the tensions leaving with just blissful pleasure. Nature has the power to uplift and lighten the soul if only we let ourselves get to know it.

Fun fact: Once when William Wordsworth was on a walk with his sister he came upon a sight of ‘a belt of Daffodils’.

3.     Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into frsagments
By narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
-Rabindranath Tagore, Where the mind is without fear

The poet dives in, where the mind is free and without fear. A place where one can explore and let their creativity flow, without any fear as knowledge is vast and boundless.In a world which has not yet been confined to bounderies dividing it into cities,states, and nations. Stating what is national and what is not. It is, where, the words are true. And everyone is in search of bettering their selves. A nation, indeed should be a place where dreams are born.

4.       Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be for
My unconquerable soul.
-William Ernest Henley, Invictus
# Aura

The poem is strong and bold away from despair. Suggests that the poet’s soul is invictus as he lay dying on his death bed yet his soul is unwilling to surrender to his fears. Soon enough his vision was blurring and darkness cripled in. he could not see a thing as the darkness grew yet he wasn’t afraid of dying. Rather he was thanking the God for his life.

5.   Say this city has ten million souls,
Some are living in mansions,some living in holes:
Yet thers no place for us, my dare, yet thers no place for us.
Once we had country and we thought it fair,
Look in the atlas and you'll find it there:
We cannot go there now, my dear, we cannot go there now.
-W.H. Auden, Refugee Blues

It is a anti- war poem, that sharply criticises the destruction and death caused by war. This is a powerful poem that echoes Wilfred Owens’ famous quote “the pity of war”. The poem stands against discrimination among castes, creeds and races. The poet ironically exclaims that there were many places to live but none for the jews. He draws contrast between people living in mansions and the ones living in death holes.

Fun fact: The emotions are also well portrayed in the movie, ‘The Boy In Stripped Pyjamas’, set in the time between world war II.

Acknowledgement Week

Hi, this is your Aria, back with something called Acknowledgement week.

Each and everyone, together we can all make a difference.

Acknowledging and appreciating go side by side. Without acknowledging one cannot appreciate. And without appreciating one cannot express their acknowledgement. Enough of the riddles, getting back to point.

Significance

The vibes we give are the ones we’ll receive. In short, influence and vibes, reciprocate. So, would we like grief around us all the time. Certainly not, if you ask for personal choice.

But sometimes in our already busy lives, we forget acknowledging what we have. Even if it is the things we got, people we meet, places we vist. So in order to not to forget acknowledging and appreciating.

Let’s all celebrate and contribute in something called ‘Acknowledgment Week’. It will certainly act as reminder for us, to not just have a full mind but be in the state of mindfulness, as we will engage ourselves in appreciating and acknowledging every moment.

Stay Happy, just like this๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Acrostic poem

Today, I am here with a vivid description, of the word ‘doodle’, for you.I think it makes sense but the rest is up to us, as, how we perceive it. Everyone have different perspective on various things and this what makes us a unique individual. Let’s celebrate this diversity. And for now, here I proceed with my creation for you. Your version of the word ‘doodle’ will be highly appreciated( so go on and re-post it).

Critical Thinking

Things might seem hard lately or maybe they don’t, and I appreciate either one of your answer. Today I want you to know, that hard is what challenges us. So keep doing what you are doing, I hope we’ll get better at it, together. And also, in all that hustle, we should not forget to take ourselves along, move with the flow, as if, you are a butterfly. Keep critics away and instead have critical thinking that will help us to improve our own selves in a good way. Nevertheless, we should also make some time for doing what we like, it can be hobby or anything which gives you happiness, it will increase our efficiency, most importantly it makes us feel alive.

you can do anything.

Thank you, that was all that I wanted to share with you all. I hope the best for all of you.
