"Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully." -- Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Every moment, she would weave a world of her own, observing the bits around her, and it was in those very bits, she realised, she was happy being in a space that confined to her own shell.

A stubborn soul as she always had been, succumbing to the whims of life was never her thing.

"Our skin, I thought, is like the leaf of a tree, young and green and shiny. Then it gets darker and heavier, sometimes spotted with disease, sometimes eaten away. Then fading, yellow and red, then failing, crumbling into dust or feeding the flames of fire." -- Ruskin Bond, Small Towns, Big Stories

Small towns, big stories. Big Towns, too many stories.

"There are a hundred things she has tried to chase away, the things she won't remember and that she can't even let herself think about because that's when the birds scream and the worms crawl and somewhere in her mind it's always raining a slow and endless drizzle." -- Neil Gaiman

The same raindrops, yet a different year. The same overcast, yet a different sky. Just the same old girl with the same thundering silence!

A world within the worlds. That's how I suppose our lives are. Masking bits at a time and sneaking out some at the other.

Have you read this autobiographical tale of a 13 year old girl? Would love to know your thoughts on the same. I have started reading it today and the words quoted above coming from a young girl of 12 is quite a wisdom punch right in the beginning. Age is just a number, as they rightly say!

A quick and deep read! This was my first attempt to read Khalil and he is worth every single praise I have heard about his works. The book beautifully reminds us about our reflections and reactions towards life, all the things that we are aware of, but get blurred by the corresponding situations and emotions. There are alot of lines that make you stop and contemplate, and of course those insightful illustrations have added some more tones of beauty in the book.

How much she loved watching the sun going down? How much that mellowness and orangish sky soothed her heart? She was in love with this time of day. For it was not just the dying sun, it was a promise, a promise for a new and better and beautiful day!

"Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard." -- Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Just like an invisible trail walking along with us side by side, the void which our heart feels for all the things that we buried somewhere become our home when we are not able to let go of them.

By all means, use sometime to be alone! Salute thyself: See what thy soul doth wear! -- George Herbert

One of those days when you want to curl up in your own little world, the music of the night accompanying you, some lights winking at you, a pen and a paper smiling at you and a tea cup waiting to be devoured.

There is a certain void which I'm trying to fill with people. Coz that's what people do, right.
Depressed, talk to people. Happy, celebrate with people.
Just. I have noone out of my blood relation. I feel a disconnect. My people are there coz they didn't have any choice. The people who had, left. Not one. All. There is a certain void. I can't call people mine. Friends or lovers.

Tried to settle the mind and believe in what you have. But the void never fades.
The blues that come back without invitation.

How much do I want you...I would've​ told you only if you asked. I want you right now. With me. Sitting beside. Travelling in the metro as we would cover the distance, somewhere our minds would meet. I wanted you to whisper, stay with me. Magic words. Only if, you would've known that Im already in love with you. Only if, you wanted me.

I wouldn't trade living in a city for anything. Cars, blocked sunsets and what the hell moments 😂

Forgive yourself.
Become at peace with your past.
Life is what you make it..
Whether you make choices or your choices make you, whats important is that you've chosen and made a good fight.
Pick battles big enough to matter and small enough to win...
Here's to stepping back so you could jump a little higher.

Things as great as these may seem simple to achieve, but reality dictates otherwise. Working on these everyday, one step a time, one day at a time.. #quotes #lifeandmusings
