When I was a young girl, I’d have to do something to divert my attention to anything that would help me cope up with my diversity in life, and that was writing letters to strangers or commonly termed as pen pal. At that time, I just hid and sat in a corner and wrote or replied to strangers all over the world. And after that, I was totally alright again. Now that I am older, still writing in a creative way is one of my passions.
I just like the feeling of having followers from complete strangers. It feels good when someone reads your writings, and liking them is the best achievement because when you write from the heart, is something you could reach a person who feels the same way and understand where one is coming from.
So, Jotting Thoughts Site is all about prose and poetry, and travel and photography.
I’ve always known I had trouble with expressing myself, just like everyone else. I was careful with the words I said; I usually just kept them inside my head and smiled instead. But I’ve always looked for a way to soar, a way to feel the wind brush my face –the exhilaration of flying among white clouds; the thrill, the adrenaline, I’ve always yearned and craved for it all. And I only found it in writing letters and words, who would’ve thought?
With every word I write, I find that I can be free; free of all the thoughts that consume me. I found that I can fly and soar the skies with my heart coming alive, that’s why I write –I got addicted to the high.
Writing for me, is an ordinary girl suddenly having wings –unfolding it and lifting her feet off the ground; leaving the world behind and LIVING, finally.
