Week 4

Here we are, already done with week 4 and I don’t know where time has gone. 

Tom Hiddleston however, slowed down time for me today when I had to be home because I’ve caught myself a urine infection. Ugh. 

I fell asleep listening to his soothing voice, reciting the Sonnet 18 . ( Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? )

Here’s the link. Tell me you are not awed.

And, here are the pictures from week 4. It seems to me, that the project 365 has turned into a reminder of how fast time can really move when you are not watching it. 

Enjoy !

Week 3 !

I never think of myself as anything. 

I don’t like labels, I don’t like thinking myself as one way or another because, I am not. 

I don’t like to think I am fierce or that I am gentle, I find that I am a constant ball of contradictions, tangled up in one another. And there’s my comfort. 

I am made of lot of broken pieces , held together by love, if you will. I feel sadness deep in my bones just as much as I feel love. I feel anger and jealousy and pity , red hot and deep purple , and I hate myself when I do, and God knows I like a bit of distance. So I am cold. Sue me. 

I don’t try to be anything, just somebody I can live with, I just want the world to treat me as such. But no. The world wants many things. And I have to live with the world. 

This post is pointless, and is frustrating so here I am , making it into the fourth week, giving you the pictures from the third. 

Enjoy!

Thoughts on the Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is a long read. They are big books and even if you are reading fairly fast, it’s still slow going. And not only because the books are in small print.

It’s exhausting to read with every sentence gripping all of your attention and consuming all of your emotions all at once. (Too many ‘all’s ?)  Ever too often, I find myself putting the book down, feeling drained. Into my third book , ( and no I haven’t seen the TV series yet)  it’s starting to intensify more and more as I read on.

Sometimes I put it down, and I have to take a walk around the house , or drink a cup of tea or kiss my husband while I try to get a grip on the shock some chapters present. Even then sometimes, I can’t bring myself to read on. Not until I feel strong enough to handle the book.

I’ve never been tortured at the hands of a book this way. And I love it ! You want a book to consume you and this is such a good series that I feel, one day when I am old and grey and all our children have gone away to their lives, I’ll be able to pick it up and not feel lonely.

 

Project 365 – Week 2

Evening. 

The sky rumbles and rumbles but there’s no rain. 

I am seated by the window in the living room, in my reading spot with the curtain that’s just a bit too short.

There’s no wind. There’s a strange kind of stillness that promises rain and my head’s been hurting since morning so I wish there was a bit of wind. 

It frustrates me that there isn’t. My head throbs persistently. There’s still no rain.

I give you, the second week. So glad I  made it this far. huh.

Project 365 – Week 1

So we all know how I did the couple of years I tried my hand at a project 365 .

Fail !

Erm, nevertheless, I have decided not to be a quitter ( coz a winner newer quitters ) and have started on the project this year as well.

Wish me luck !

I’ve decided to upload at the end of each week so that it doesn’t become too overwhelming for me to upload at the end of 6 months. Ugh.

So. I give you, the very first week.
