Dear love of my life,

I still remember the first time we met. Still in the teens, reverberating from the jolt of youth, shying away in the adulthood that bloomed from adolescence. I walked through the hazy folds of the path that's called life, unsure, unheard, wallowing in my being.

And then I saw you.

For a long time, artists strived to create art that could resemble the things they could see in real life, in as much detail as possible. That, was considered true art. But then, what of our dreams? What of the unique, fantastical things we see and experience in a world that does not follow the norms of the real world? And if translating it into canvas isn't the most exciting idea there is, I don't know what is.

May toJuly is the perfect time to visit Dharamshala. As far as I know, it is a popular stop in the hippie trail guide (I made that term up, obviously) at this time of the year. I was living in Gokarna for a few months and moved to Dharamshala a month back. Turns out, there was a 'Welcome People of Gokarna' party which confirmed my beliefs of the hippie trail. You also get to meet all kinds of people from all over the world. And you get to experience a lot more of your surroundings and this culture.

Every now and then we need gentle reminders that we are enough. Words that speak to our hearts and let us know that despite the many storms we brave, we are cared for. We need people who stand by us during the worst of our days just to help us experience unconditional love. That is where Spirit Daughter's art comes into play. She writes about the trials that make us human and how, through each of these conquests we can retain our magic. Especially on days when we think we can no longer push through and on days when settling for just 'okay' seems tempting.

Let's be honest, there is nobody who does NOT enjoy gifts! No need to be modest now, it's alright, you can accept it. A little pampering here and there is completely expect-worthy. Personally, I'm a sucker for small, inexpensive, personalized gifts that can sometimes express so much more than words! It shows that there is someone listening and noticing the smallest things about you which can make you happy. However, isn't it a complete travesty that we wait for special occasions to make our significant other happy when all it requires is some cute, small gestures!

There are things in life that most people experience, but then, a few of us don't. One of those things is having a roommate. How do I explain? It's a blessing, but it is also a nightmare. You wouldn't exchange it for the world, but would also love to push them into a fire. Know what I am talking about? Then you'll relate to these:

The last year has been...interesting for me. It was a year of heartbreak and triumphs. A year where I often let heartbreak eclipse my triumph, beating myself up over "not fighting harder" for someone I thought was the love of my life. For taking a step back and choosing myself over that someone. But then, I moved on. I found that letting go, is sometimes the most freeing thing you'll ever do for yourself, filled with lessons and love.

Friends, amirite? The random strangers we like, and decide to make our own. The crazy, bizarre weirdos who match our crazy, bizarre weirdness to perfection. Honestly, what would our silly little lives even be without the friends we love, admire and annoy?

Which is why I cracked up so hard when I came across artist timmeroh and his series of truly wacky comics that well, pretty much sum up the insanity of my life that I would share with no one but the bunch of people I like to call 'friends'. Check 'em out!
