Every Road Leads Me Back To You...

Stay, forever who you are
Don't change a thing
Because you're perfect...
You sway, gently in the breeze
In between my dreams
It kinda makes me nervous...
Your storm, is lightning striking down

To only strike me once,
Would still be worth it...


With all my highs and lows, I'm perfect. Just the way I am right here...and to be back in your arms again, I'd even risk my life.


Finding My Old Piano...
No you're not dreaming. Don't try to wake up cos you're already awake. No this is not the ghost of Keshi haunting you from the depths of her blog. This is indeed Keshi in real, and back after a month's break :). Yes I had to be back sooner than I thought I'd be, cos I just couldn't tell myself to be something that I wasn't. Can you stop yourself from being who you are? Can you try and burn all your passions and bury your love in a shallow grave, way before it's time? I can't. I tried but I failed miserably. Writing is my passion...and the intellectual and emotional connection I have with all of you here, is my love. I couldn't watch them both fade away into oblivion and do nothing about it. Writing, learning, expressing, connecting, growing and reaching out to people from around the globe is my soul purpose on Earth...I have nothing else in my life that makes me more content than that. My most precious dream in life isn't about getting hitched in a pretty dress or getting a big house or making it to the top in my profession. My ultimate dream in life lives in my expressions...and that is this blog. Cos this is where the core of my soul lives...this is where the images of my heart are on display in the form of posts...this is where the cries from the depth of my very being are heard...my blog is my spirit. So, how can I shut them all up? I must have been very low when I left. Please forgive me for making you all so very sad by leaving, but I'm back now...and now my spirit is as fresh as clear waters from a brook, cos in the last few weeks it went away to the wilderness, talked to the birds, trees, lakes, the sea & the sand, the sun, moon & the stars...and realised it's full potential. And yes, my spirit is in pretty good shape now. Just like a musician who hasn't played his piano in a long time, now I'm dusting and cleaning the instrument behind my passion, and I look at it with a renewed love...


In Between My Dreams...
Margie and Soul, my dearest mates have been writing to me almost every single day since my last post, and have been lifting my spirits in every possible way they could. They didn't pressure me to be back here, instead they accepted my decision about wanting some time away from blogs...but they just wanted to know how I am, and I must say they are real angels. Arv, Nikhil, Jeevan, Hobo, Amit, Anuz, Sawan, Ankur, Kartz, Mayz, Illusions, Ria, Rat, Rakesh, Anitha...you guys never gave up on me...cos I received many emails from you, always wanting to know how I am and when I'd be back. And all of you who commented in my last post, those who sent me txts and countless emails, and even first-timers in my blog and total strangers, lifted my spirits in ways that I cannot possibly finish expressing...cos all the positive energy you sent my way, made me think about my decision and return much sooner than even I myself expected to. So, a big THANK YOU to ALL of you who stayed in touch even though I was gone for awhile. It just makes me realise how much you care about me and you were not here just for the blog thing, but were true mates in this long and uncertain journey of my soul. Sometimes we fall on our way, and it's during those times you realise who your real friends are. I saw bright flashes of angels in between my dreams...I kept seeing your faces and I found my purpose again...


Tapping Into New Territories...
According to the Buddha, 'Letting Go' (Nekkamma parami) is one of the 10 Perfections that must be achieved in order to set yourself free from Craving and Suffering. It's also one of the hardest to achieve. Though I haven't perfected it *hell nah, I'm still into Manolo Blahniks et al ;-)*, I believe that I have learnt to let go of some of my deepest cravings here in Blogville...my most vulnerable habits...my senseless desire to be accepted...my once ever-growing expectations from people here etc. I have learnt that people change, act unexpectedly, behave the way we don't want them to, may hurt us, abuse us etc, but the power is in ME to be able to stay resilient amidst Change...and I shall remember and aim towards that always. When things don't happen the way you want them to, know that there's a new fulfilling territory inside of you waiting to be found, from that same unfulfilling experience...

Will visit all your blogs soon ;-) Have a great weekend guys!

Hello Keshi... How are you lately?
It is good to see you back again. I guess you have found yourself during this break.. *hugs*

If writing, learning, expressing, connecting, growing and reaching out to people from around the globe are your passions, don't stop it. You already know what your hearts want. That's great!

I should say this post is an inspiring one as I am still spending some times, discovering myself. Thank for coming back with this wonderful post. Muacks..

Suma said...

oh this is telepathy..was thinking about you...and hoping you were doing well... and i switch on my comp and find a post from you...

i think a break does us good, it helps us see things from another perspective...

i'm kinda having an enforced one...kid's vacations et all...

welcome back...

Margie said...

My Darlin' friend....you made my day...you are back!!!!!
I'm soooooo happy!

But, I'll have to come back later as my huuby & I were visiting some wonderful friends on our st (actually just across the st. and we all had a few glasses of wine and I feel just a bit tipsy!
So when the wine wears off I'll be back...promise!

Luv ya, darlin'

Margie:):):)

Margie said...

And while the wine is wearing off, I am going to write another poem for you....that is just how I express my true feelings.
So, I'll be back soon!

*HUGS*

I'm so so happy that you're back again. Take care and I'll see you around soon :)

Devika said...

I am so glad you are back, Keshi

Staying with all in ups and downs is far better than changing courses....because its what you are that brought you here...

no, no lecturing...you know it all as much as me :)

wishes,
devika

MAN IN PAINTING said...

Welcome back,keshi..
we just need that tiny spark of awareness to feel that we all are perfect.
happy you are back.
let the path and the destination become one.
enjoy the chaotics swings and yet try to balance..
like butterlies on the grass blades..
wishes..

Beach Bum said...

Glad to see you are back! I have often thought about calling it quits on blogging myself. Chasing the kids, my job, marriage, and about a hundred other things makes it hard at times to do much beyond laying on the couch and watching TV.
Still, on those few moments when I have time to think the first thing that comes to mind is to write about it.

krystyna said...

Hurrraaa!
I'll be back!

Margie said...

Hey Keshi, I'm back.
While I was gone, I made a nice dinner, did some laundry and wrote a poem for you.

Oh, before I share the poem with you, I must tell you how much I loved this post!
And, yes, you are perfect and I agree that writing is your passion.
Your blog shows your true spirit and genuine heart and soul.
You belong here and I knew you would be back sooner than later.(even though I never told you that in all our emails while you were gone as I did not want to pressure or influence you about coming back)

And here is my poem.

I'll Be Here

If ever there's a moment
when you need a friend to listen
if ever someone can reach out
to dry the tears that glisten ...
I'll be here ...

If you just need encouragement
to help you on the way
if you need a cheerful voice
to pull you through the day ...
I'll be here ...

If you need one who cares a lot
and thinks about you often
if you need one who shares your hopes
your worries strives to soften ...
I'll be here ...

If you would like to be yourself
with someone who respects you
if you need one who understands
how all of life affects you ...
I'll be here ...


With love ...

Know I'm always your friend!

*HUGS*
Have a wonderful weekend, hun!
Nitey nite...I'm going to bed very soon as the wine made me very sleepy.

Nachi said...

hahaha!! yippie!! yay! :D

...you are back! i knew it! but where are the pics?? i need to look at Keshi pics! its been over a month since i last ogled at Keshi pics...

anyways, i'm really glad that you are back. i hope that you have sorted out whatever it was that had you rethinking about life and blogging and stuff. we all need to rethink from time to time. maybe even change tracks and walk a new path. but like they say, in the end we always come back home.

welcome back Keshi girl! know that you are loved and that you were missed!

:)

Keshi Dear,
Nothing could have been more wonderful day start, than that comment on my blog.
I am glad you are back, i wont feel that missing element in my daily chores any more.

See this link:
http://is.gd/oPMo
Some author has spoken abt female bloggers, issue. Infact i wrote to her about your case.
Anyway let the blogs be coming, and no more sad blogs, please.
In words of joker, "why so serious".
Hugs and kisses

SamY said...

Welcome back NUTTY. I wasn't quite sure why you wrote your epilogue after asking me not to take a break from blogging :D.

I was just hoping that you wouldn't be able to keep away from blogging. Was wondering if you started it somewhere else :).

Anywayz, its great to have you back. And hopefully this time I will try to keep up with your posts :D.

Gosh! its been 40 days since I read my calvin & hobbes :(.

WELCOME BACK NUTTY >>:D<<.

Anything interesting / out of the ordinary that you did during your break?? hmm??

CM-Chap said...

:)

welcome back...
ur sweet frnds missed you.... :)

Ria said...

Oh i cant tell u how happy it made me to visit ur blog today....i m so so happy tht u r back gurl!!

Wud u believe me that i broke down in front of my guy when i told him abt ur decision of leaving blogville....and that made him so concerned that he was willing to get in touch with u, to make a special request that why u shud get back to blogging....which truly is ur real calling. :) I m sure he'll b glad to know tht u r back for good.

btw, i think the most powerful phrase in this post of urs was

"But the power is in ME to be able to stay resilient amidst Change...and I shall remember and aim towards that always"

And thats the way one has to be gurl!! Ur posts hav always given direction to my thoughts....i knw u may think that this is the highest level of flattery tht one can think of....but thats the kinda impact ur posts hav always had on me. As of now...i m just overwhelmed to see u back!! WB hun.
*Hugs*

vishesh said...

Ha gift for you,a fairy tale in my blog ;)

Julia Scissor said...

Welcome back! It had thought you'd be gone a long time.

I wish I could let go of the need for acceptance. I still haven't been able to do that. Not keeping expectations to avoid disappointment is something I have mastered.

A great weekend to you too. It's the first day of the Maharashtrian new year in my part of the world.

Keshi: A week may be a long time in politics.
But one word (Or two)in blogging may last for a lifetime.

"Welcome Back" xxx.

The kids missed you too.

Woohoo, you are back ! YAY =)

Tys on Ice said...

welcome back girl...even i hve been taking a break from the blog; mainly becoz a lot has been going on in my life and needed my whole attention...aim to get back to writing again soon..

iam glad u r back...just be, keshi...aspiring to meet another's expectation is a draining task...sooner or later it will take its toll...

Talking To My Soul said...

Thank you. Thank You. And thank you, Kesh. For everything and for returning.

Did I say it was weird? It is not anymore now that you are back. It is assuring.

Be well and be good. I will be back soon.

Heyy, let me say happy blogging, lady!!! :D

*smilez*

WarmSunshine said...

Keshiiiiiiii

*hugs*

I'm so glad to have you back. I feel bad not being able to be one of those keeping in constant touch. You must know that the reason just wasn't the ever-so-lame 'i was busy'. I've been partially away from this place too. But sweety, I thought about you every single day, especially when I would look through my readers' list. I'm very happy you have come back with a new passion, a new and fresh energy. I was afraid you might not come back but i held back. *muah* Thanks for coming back. So many good people left Blogsville, and you leaving was a big big loss. And another good news is that Cindy is back as well. Yuppieee!!!

Are you on Facebook? I wanna add you there so I can be in touch with you, like my other blogger buddies. Will look forward to meeting you there sweety :)

Love ya!!!
MUAH!!!

Hey...i have become not so regular with blogging, but everytime i decide to check people'e blogs, I always look forward to yours...it just lifts me up :)

Dont give up the good work!

Welcome back to your home. Just remember BE WHAT YOU ARE AS LONG AS YOUR CONSCIENCE IS CLEAR. People will talk ill of anyone or malign. So rise above all that and keep up with your passion.

Take care

So glad you are well and to see you back here, right on Ugadi (Hindu New year day) too. Good for you.
It's okay to take a break and get yourself together. I will be gone too in June and July, must break away from time to time and relax.
Have a fun day and weekend, smile and see you later!
Busy day for me today, got cook something special for the new year!:))

Kunjal said...

nice to see you back:)

Donn Coppens said...

Good for you. You certainly are a communicator and it would be silly to stop.

Facebooking doesn't let you let you be unique and Twittering is just soundbiting? I see that most people feel trapped by the 140 characters and now they all add a link because you can't get anything going in two sentences.

Blogging is still the best way to do all the things that you dream up. You just need to be careful that it doesn't become the ONLY thing.

Welcome home Keshtar.

hey kesh.... this is real great news to start a day with !!! I am so very glad you are back and this post expresses your feeling right to the point and i am very happy that you have talken time out, sorted your feelings and have come back with a renewed sense of vigour and strength ....

oii keshi i know sometimes we might go through bouts of 'low'ness but its the spirit within that counts . i too realised it this year , what others say doesnt matter unless of course its something positive :)

-forever hoping to see more of u :)

Memphis Steve said...

I'm glad that you have come back. It's hard to stop writing, isn't it? It almost hurts to hold all the thoughts and feelings inside, with no outlet for expressing them. So many have left. The Blog is less for the loss of them, but even so, onward it goes. Welcome back.

Phoenix said...

yay keshi is back!!! my god!! i could cry with relief!!! :)

*hugs*

i didnt realize until you were gone just how important you are to me...

thank you for being back.. and for not abandoning all those who love you..

Hey - really glad to be see you back :)

I read some of your older posts while you were gone, and as I got to know you better, I kept thinking why you would leave all these connections you have made for good! But thank god you got your well deserved break and are back :)

You have a way with words, and there is no doubt that writing is your passion - and I'm glad you are not giving it up.

XOXO!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Arnva WC n ty!


**very few ppl have the will to continue their passions despite all odds

yep..to follow one's passion, it takes alot of guts, courage and willpower. cos there r always ppl out there to put u down, let u down, harass u, make fun of ur passion etc...and sometimes they r not even strangers...they can be ur loved-ones, friends and ppl u looked up to. And thats the toughest part to overcome...to not listen to such ppl's words and go ahead with ur passion.


:)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

** I wasn't quite sure why you wrote your epilogue after asking me not to take a break from blogging

**I wish I could let go of the need for acceptance.

I hvnt mastered it fully either...but slowly Im getting there. I hv to. Cos no matter who accepts me or not, I hv to learn to accept myself. Then only I'd be able to survive under any circumstances.


**Not keeping expectations to avoid disappointment is something I have mastered.

Good on ya! Sometimes I do it pretty well but at other times, I fail miserably :(

awww ty Donno HUGZ!


**Facebooking doesn't let you let you be unique and Twittering is just soundbiting? I see that most people feel trapped by the 140 characters and now they all add a link because you can't get anything going in two sentences.


LOL true! ok Im not a FB lover..all of u should know that by now. BUT, I was forced into being on FB recently by a cuz, and I joined it cos of her. And 2 months down the track, IM OUTTA THAT PLACE! Why? FB 'limited' my cranium levels in ways that I cant finish expressing! Its so not my thing. I cant believe that I even tried it. That doesnt mean that others shouldnt be on FB..to each his own. But mate, I really dun do FB...cos I just cant!

*lolz*
