There is a pleasure in the pathless
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage
I have offended God and mankind because my work didn't reach the quality it should have.
I have wasted my hours...
----Leonardo da Vinci ( Multi-Faced Universal Genius)
I bet that the greatest creative writer who is born/ will be born will certainly not be educated in school!!! Take my word...
((We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation-rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.))) ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Besides the alternate universe offered by a
book, the quiet space of a museum was my favorite place to go. My
mom said I was an escapist at heart . . . that I preferred
imaginary worlds to the real one. It’s true that I’ve always been
able to yank myself out of this world and plunge myself into
— Amy Plum (Die for Me)
Writers write and they keep on writing..but how many are creative enough to be the the out-of-the-world lunatic, the perfect, true lover, the dreamer of dreams and the most unimaginable poet who writes from beyond..the true creative writer is more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than you think... It's tough to imagine him and it's always difficult to reach him..He does not need opium. He has the gift of reverie..
John Keating: We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million. ~Walt Streightiff
“20 years from now you will be disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the one’s you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover” ~ Mark Twain
Everything in this world..
Everything in Heaven,
Every single bit..
Mine and Ours..
SRINIDHI.R (FIONA DREAMS -6)
I see God as Creativity itself...from the little seeds pushing past rocks and clay toward the light....to the musical and artistic seeds pushing up through the hearts of young children during playtimes(so often squelched by some well meaning teacher or adult).
Creativity means sharing something with god, because he is the creator and whenever you create something you are participating with him. You become a partner -- of course a small partner, but a partner is a partner.
Who is Fiona???
As I had a boring life, I wanted to try something different. Thus I created a woman out of my fantasy world and named her Fiona. I also gave her unique powers. She was the wonderous, beautiful angel of my creation. The truth is that soon I soon fell in love with her and I ended up writing stories and quotes and poems about her. One day, my Fiona will be known to the entire world and that is my dream...
Fiona Dreams--The Beginning
“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” — Alan Alda
“Creativity is… seeing something that doesn’t exist already. You need to find out how you can bring it into being and that way be a playmate with God.” — Michele Shea
“God is really another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things.” — Pablo Picasso
“The highest prize we can receive for
creative work is the joy of being creative. Creative effort spent
for any other reason than the joy of being in that light filled
space, love, god, whatever we want to call it, is lacking in
integrity. . .
– Marianne Williamson
“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” –Osho
“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.” — Edward de Bono
“You become more divine as you become more creative. All the religions of the world have said God is the creator. I don’t know whether he is the creator or not, but one thing I know: the more creative you become, the more godly you become. When your creativity comes to a climax, when your whole life becomes creative, you live in God. So he must be the creator because people who have been creative have been closest to him. Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it – whatsoever it is!” — Osho
I walked with my eyes on the path, but out of the corners of them I saw a man hiding behind an olive tree. He did not move as we approached, but I fell that he was watching us. As soon as we had passed I heard a scamper. Wilson, like a hunted animal, had made for safely. That was the last I ever saw of him.
He died last year. He had endured that life for six years. He was found one morning on the mountainside lying quite peacefully as though he had died in his sleep. From where he lay he had been able to see those two great rocks called the Faraglioni which stand out of the sea. It was full moon and he must have gone to see them by moonlight. Perhaps he died of the beauty of that sight.
---The Lotus Eater ---By W. Somerset Maugham
I would not dream to be a king who will have lots of riches and women to please him, but I would serve the Lord and live in his presence. I would not dream of fascinating lands where there is plenty of gold, but I would dream of living in a land filled with love and bliss. I would live in God's garden of love, dear father.
I know that I would be happy there forever! Please don't shed tears! I know that God will give you the strength to bear all the pain you will encounter in life. I once dreamt of seeing the Lord, father. I still remember the dream. I was near a flowing river and the Lord was at the top of the cliff spreading out his arms as if he were calling me. I ran to him not knowing that the thorns and the stones in the middle of the path would wound me. It never wound me! It never hurt me a bit! I ran to the lord and embraced him. I could see millions of stars in infinite space. I felt God in me and all over me. He was in my head! He was in my heart! He was in my soul!
So dear father, I would tell you in a nutshell that life may seem difficult but certainly there is no doubt that you have the strength and the power to bear it! Please do not care about me after my death! Please keep in mind that I loved the world a lot! I loved nature, the trees, the plants, the animals and every living being! My school! My friends! My childhood! My father! My house! My body! Myself! I loved everything till the core! I would still remain young! Have faith! I am just a traveler! Better life ahead!

THE IDEA BEHIND THE IDEA-- A SUMMARY OF MY
Hello everyone! I have been doing a lot of posting today and its all put in bits and pieces and scattered everywhere. As I am poor in grammar, I make simple mistakes. Please don’t mind them. Here is the contents and summary of all my postings for our blog in order...
1. A children's poem I wrote-Please don't ring the doorbell--
A funny piece written for small children. I was inspired by the doorbell ring to write this. I got 3 comments on this. I want to publish this poem in Open Sesame, Deccan Herald, Bangalore. I will be submitting it next week to be precise...
2. A horror Chiller which is really creepy! MADNESS BY MOONLIGHT--RATING PG
This one terrified me to quite a bit! It’s not often you would see horror like this. I was inspired by the dark horror theme behind this story. I wrote about a vampire without using the word vampire in all of the words in this story. I wrote this dark tale, seeing the moonlight cast its shadows on the land. A mystical female vampire is the main character and she lives in an abandoned mansion. I loved the last 2 lines especially.”
“When darkness falls and the moonrises her shadow will awaken her again. Together they will move into the night supping on vengeance and hungering to satisfy their yearning for mortal flesh and blood.”
I submitted this one to commonwealth short story competition. I received some good comments on this in one of my personal website. Also a few comments said that I have to edit it thought the concept’s good. When I submitted this as my creative writing assignment I got a low score. I got a strong remark saying that this doesn't qualify as a proper horror tale at all. Then I edited this with the help of one of my online friends and I submitted it for "written in blood contest" in www.vamplit.com. Thus there are all the facts behind “Madness by moonlight”.
3. My first play ..It is called "When the thunder roars"...
I tried to use American slang here in my first play. I have never written a play before. I thought this was too bad. I also changed the age of the children. I turned them into teens... But at last it finally came out as a cozy tale with a few teens in a bungalow waiting for the rain to stop.
4. My first Indian fan fiction which may touch your heart and soul...”KRISHNA'S LETTER"
This one brought a lot of tears into my eyes. I wrote it with a lot of feelings. I wanted this to be a touching spiritual tale. I made a simple tale out of a letter written by a dying Krishna(a farm boy) to his father. He writes this encouraging piece which serves as a solace to his father who is grieving on the death of his son. He speaks about his meeting with the Lord in his dream and how his soul unites with him forever and how he becomes enlightened. I loved every part of this writing.
5. Nid's nature dairy watch Journal-- Article 1--A garden of flowers
Fascinated by flowers, I worked on this short article... I made it too short because I wanted it to be short and sweet. Again this brought some joyful tears when I really touched a flower and talked to it, as I write this article. My favorite lines are
“God must have been a genius and an artist of exceptional talent to make them and we human beings do not even notice the beauty in it”.
6. Henry's first Adventure-- a children's story by me
I always love Enid Blyton and Roald dahl..I was inspired by those children’s writers which made me pen a children’s short story with a bunny as a main character. I brought out conflict in the form of a wolf. Henry property is invaded by a stout bunny and Henry fights back to regain his property. It’s a funny children’s story. The last 4 lines of the poem were also written by me.
7. Tea Time—NID’S KIDS JOURNAL-2
I loved this poem so much when I typed it for the first time. It’s good to have a family poem where all the members drink tea. I myself dream of a large family. The second paragraph is simply very good but I was not still satisfied with the last paragraph myself. The tea all spills out and the children have to go without tea that day. A sad ending to that but a few optimistic lines at the end which says ...”
Uh... No more tea pots!
We’ll all drink tea tomorrow
Well, there is much time we’ve got!
8. My Vision of the Future- A Creative Thought
I do not know astrology or any Predicting stuff. I just wanted to convey a universal message to all which would suit everyone and be applicable to all. I worked on this for 10 minutes and came out with it. I mention something about BOOKSIE here saying that it would become the biggest and famous writers SITE in history. May sound childish!
9. Yellow Balloons- A Sweet Story
One of my online writing friends( FARFINAGLE) requested me to write a story with him. I didn’t know what to do. I just had an excerpt of a paragraph I wrote in my creative writing class and I gave him that. He wrote the next entire 7 paragraphs to complete the story. It’s about something special. I won’t reveal it here. You should read the story for it. It’s posted on our blog. I loved the ending, though...
10. An Enchanting Tale about a Beautiful Mermaid
Finally I got this published in Times school newspaper. It was selected. I was filled with joy when I went to collect it. It’s about a beautiful mermaid and her voice. I then edited the story and sought help from another online writer who worked on the ending. The Times of India people advised me to keep on writing. Now, I know that One day I’ll become a Writer and soar to the skies and publish my writings in GOLDEN INK….
11. Paradise Tears of Golden Joy
I just had a golden concept in mind and scribbled it till it became a golden poem raining gold and gold all around! I loved every line of it. I got the idea from a dream. That dream was just wonderful where the weather was very cool and it rained gold in a rainforest and I was drenched in golden drops watching the cloudy dark sky...
12. I Will Come For you—INSPIRATONAL POETRY
This poem provides solace to all who are waiting for someone/something to say this to comfort them. It’s worth the wait to hear such poem…
12. My beautiful Christmas tree
I wrote this one last Christmas... I am always enthralled by the snow and Christmas trees and the lights and the gifts... So I wrote this…
13. Every Moment Is a Blessing
Personal Favorite! But on the other hand not much to write about…
14. The Messenger of Love
I want to submit this again to a newspaper. Love the cliché’s and the lines which say
“I am the white dove
Who spreads messages of love”
15. NID’S NATURE DAIRY WATCH ISSUE 2—LOVE OF THE FORESTS
This is one of my dreams to live like a character in this tale. Living with nature and natural landscapes! Too GOOD to IMAGINE!
16. Hope at the End of the Tunnel
My first spiritual poem filled with hope. It was again featured in booksie for many days. I received many comments. I wrote this after seeing the sunshine on a bright morning!
17. The Dino in the Fridge—A Funny Piece
A funny plot for a children’s book! A boy finds baby dinosaurs in a fridge and it begins to live with the boy. It makes friends with the boy and they go on an adventure which turns in to a disaster when the parents and the people find out what’s happening! Where did the Dino come from? Will it go back to the Zoo? How is it able to talk? U will find out in the book I am writing. I will post it in the blog soon...…
18. I LOVE MY RAINCOAT-CHILDRENS POEM
I got this published in OPEN SESAME. My first poem which got published was this. I was just delighted!
19. THE DAY AT THE POND-FUNNY POEM
I usually laugh reading this piece. I think you will too! It’s just hilarious!
20. Every Writer Is Superior
I wanted to express my thoughts and feelings in this one as I was discouraged. I wrote them as a moral article….
21. THY ETERNAL LIGHT OF HAPPINESS
Again a spiritual poem I wrote..as usual..with elements like nature and peace and God..please read it..
22. A Happiness Of A Lifetime
Again inspired by an orphanage I wrote this. The first and second paragraph in which Eric thinks that he is going to a place with waterfalls and stuff is pure fiction. He dreams of many beautiful things. But he doesn't know that there is beauty in charity. That is the ultimate Beauty.. Please read it!
Creativity is next to God and has to be implemented in Writing ---Srinidhi.R
I am a dreamer! I am an Extrovert! I am a global learner and I have an introverted sensing and feeling. I would make a good artist or a writer! I am an expert voice actor! I can do mimicry and also narrate a story with a lot of enegy and enthusisam! I love nature! I love girls! I tend to have intense feelings and I care for all women! But once I love a person, I would do anything for them.
