Confidence in nonsense is a requirement for the creative process

of promises kept..

There are times in life when we need a do-over ..or rather we are forced to have one..
Dreams are shattered..
Plans don’t work out..
Priorities need adjustments..
or a complete change in life expectations needs to be made
and we are left with..what now?

These are hard times and there is no one or nothing to blame except circumstances. While going through one of these, I made a promise to myself sometime ago..
At that point I was so devastated that I did not think I could keep that promise for years to come..
but I did..
and more than anything.. it was a lesson in self discovery..
that we are far more stronger and resilient than we give ourselves credit with..
that we aren’t easily defeated..

I did go to Venice..
without my guy.. which was what I had dreamt about as a starry eyed 16 year old..
but kids don’t know everything … 🙂

    Venice canals smell bad, its commertialized and its too much hyped. i did not find it to be as romantic as expected!

      spoken like a true cynic.. well it is true that its too commercialised and over-rated… but i loved it.. it was raining heavily the day I went.. so tourists were scattered.. for me the romance was in its history.. the way the city has been built on water.. just for the heck of it..

  3. These are so, so gorgeous.
    Venice must be every 16-year-old’s dream. I’m glad you didn’t let go of it.
