Don't Dismiss the Bliss of Travel

By Steve Gillick, published on Dec 4, 2012

Supreme, or perfect happiness. Utter Joy. Contentment. These are the popular dictionary definitions of ‘bliss”. And there is nothing profound in saying that bliss is in the heart and soul of the beholder.I have alluded in past articles to the fact that I ‘bliss out’ when I find masks during the course of my travels. But that is not all! Here be it told that I am also a bibliophile—a lover of books and bookstores and I will usually spend some time perusing the shelves in whichever city I happen to be visiting. There are the legends, of course. In my search for bliss, no visit... (more)

The Empire of King and Queen

By Uttam Gill, published on Nov 10, 2012

In the emptiness, knocks are measured with suspicion but as an unknown, he was embraced with love and affection. She, coroneted him as her own king and in the parades of sparkling dreams, they received the salutation of honor. In the corridors of their world, amazingly they returned the blessings of love, with equal intensity. They very cautiously treaded through the treacherous time; with absolute sincerity, they created a space for passion, to recreate from the ruins, a palace. With new found blessings of love, both, King and the Queen could muster all the available passion to revive the... (more)

You Cannot Lie To Yourself

By Uttam Gill, published on Oct 21, 2012

...yourself in tandem with your emotions. You never blinked once, to share your feelings; unlike others, you remained as, what you are. Undeterred, unfettered, unbridled and untrammeled, you carried yourself in equanimity with your perfection and deformity. You know, you are not a God and neither a devil; but as a plain human being, you devised the way to live.

You understood that it was imperative to create your world of happiness. You understood the legitimacy of your aspirations and of your dreams. You knew that you could not lie to yourself because it's your life, not theirs.

Dream and Live

By Uttam Gill, published on Aug 24, 2012

Let this be understood in correct perspective, that no matter what you do, you won’t get desired satisfaction, unless you do it with great passion and firm convictions. The consistent denials of truth in your actions result into sequence of events, which unknowingly sucks you into a situation of immense disillusionment. You jitter and that’s how thereafter the semantics takes over and you never knew that when alienated thoughts robbed you....robbed you of the best in you... Your best was stolen and the irony is, you hardly knew about this. With fake smiles you pretend that you are living. You... (more)

This is my life

By Uttam Gill, published on Jul 29, 2012

...she grapples with truth and lies. She refuses to tie down and with stoic defiance; she enlists herself, to the cadre of die hard dreamers. People raise eyebrows; question the validity of her disposition and refuse to give space for her to buy any peace with life.

She knows that her happiness cannot be borrowed on imposing terms of conventional belief. She is firm and that’s how, she sets on a journey to realize her dream.

Today, she decided to cross the bridge, which she always thought would connect her to the world of cherished dream. And she does. She breaks the... (more)

Let's Celebrate

By Uttam Gill, published on Jul 17, 2012

...the modesty of your sane belief; when it happens then for god sake, don’t let those emotions belittle you and others. You have to find reasons to negotiate with eroding thoughts and while doing so, create for yourself and others a space of reasonable understanding and that’s how one gets happiness. Draw strength from the one who genuinely understands you and those who differ please reach out them.

No incriminating evidence of deceit should make you bitter and one should not linger on with battering experiences of life. What was to happen has happened. Create a space for sane... (more)

Make Your Life Richer

By DebTim, published on Jun 6, 2012

This week past, I was away with my baby sister. It was a time for just the two of us, to hang out, laugh, talk and reconnect on a special level that only sisters can experience. Getting away with each other has been a blessing and has strengthened our friendship as sisters knowing that we stand in the gap for each other. Sometimes life takes you by storm, days running into each other that we can't even remember what we ate the day before. It's time to experience each simple moment. We miss too much by the rush of life taking hold and moving us along at such a fast pace. Our relationships... (more)

Focus On The Good

By Randy Mitchell, published on May 18, 2012

No matter who you work with, marry, be-friend, date, parent, or live beside, sooner or later there’ll be personality traits which you don’t agree with, or find uncomfortable to be around. We’re all created differently, are an original masterpiece created by God, and like any living thing, there are no two of us exactly alike. It’s what makes the human race such an incredibly diverse body of souls. But, how we interact, and appreciate each others positive and negative qualities is more about our personality rather than the individuals inside our target zone.

I’ve always enjoyed the answers... (more)

Woman Requests Male Input

By DebTim, published on May 9, 2012

So here I'm blabbing about divorce and I'm divorced. Hmm... I took my vows seriously and meant them. I believe in my heart that I would still be married to my x if he hadn't left for greener pastures. I wasn't given any choice. I'm not saying I wasn't just as much at fault. I just didn't have a choice.

Years later I found out that pretty much our whole marriage was a sham. He had slept around for years. As it turns out, many of his conquests were my girl friends. The worst part of it all is, it was my son who told me this.

My x left us and didn't bother with the boys... (more)
