Engleza de joi/ Clay

Clay = a type of heavy, sticky earth that becomes hard when it is baked and is used to make things such as pots and bricks.

“The imagination is the true fire, stolen from heaven, to animate this cold creature of clay, producing all those fine sympathies that lead to rapture, rendering men social by expanding their hearts, instead of leaving them leisure to calculate how many comforts society affords.”
Mary Wollstonecraft (in a 1794 letter)

Word Debt

Words are everywhere…They float about and run towards us since forever and shape our fragile childhood dreams.
Words make us humane. Our entire being is constructed upon words.
And then we become in debt… We owe a “Good morning”, a “Good night”, a “I miss you”, a “I love you”, a “Thank you” … if we are lucky.

Words storm over us in apprehension of our hearts. We name feelings, colors, sentiments, passions. We imagine stories and name our heroes. We become enchanters and share the limelight of our stories. We fall in love.

We owe nothing but WORDS. And promises, commitments, visions, dreams and magic…

Flock of words travel to us every day. Some we hear. Some are left in a deaf haze, unanswered and alone.

Words are powerful. Yet they need a power which does not lie within themselves. As it lies within you. Give power to your words! Shape them clear and make them swift, concise and lasting.

I run a words business. No matter how much I give, I am still in debt… For many years and many blissful days. I give power to your words and shape them correctly in sentences free of doubt and alive with promises…

We always keep.

Engleza de joi/ Nadir

Nadir = 1.That point of the heavens, or lower hemisphere, directly opposite the zenith; the inferior pole of the horizon; the point of the celestial sphere directly under the place where we stand.
= 2.The lowest point; the time of greatest depression.

“Sometimes the worst brings out the best in you. Sometimes the lowest tide ushers in the biggest change. Sometimes the gravest wounds translate into deepest wisdom. Sometimes the nadir leads you to the zenith. All you need to do is to Hold On.” –Manprit Kaur
