MEET THE ARTIST
"You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream." -- C.S. Lewis
Although I spent nearly twenty years of my life working in Information Technology, my heart secretly belonged to the creative and artistic world which always gave me a lot of Sukoon (English translation: contentment).
I remember I had my first ‘Art - Attack’ when I was 4 years old. My mother enrolled my two older sisters for an arts class assuming I was too young to learn. The teacher, however, noticed my deep rooted desire for arts and convinced my mother to let me try. She agreed! (Love you maa) Since I was too small to sit on the chair and reach the table, my teacher made me sit ON the table :-) I still remember I sketched a leaf as my first art piece. Thank you teacher.
Many decades later, I found that little girl alive in me somewhere.
Today, I have set a new goal.
Today, I have dreamed a new dream.
Today, I want to float like a feather in air
... letting my soul take me away ... with Sukoon!
