My efforts to get my daily goals accomplished are are getting dismal lately. I think one of the main reasons would be lacking this overt sense of accomplishment that’s dragging me down. Even though April has been all about earning and learning, I still feel very unsatisfied.
On a rather random note, I feel like packing up my camera gear and and going to the picturesque north or, if I dare to feel luxurious, on a tour dé Europa! Contrary to the anticipation of capturing the sceneic beauty, I want to capture the faces, the diversity of native’s expressions and consequently, the myriad of stories these faces treasure. I can still visualize myself paving through long roads not oft travelled and meeting people and listening to them go on and on while they allow me to etch their faces on my camera. I see myself stopping by patissieries where I munch on the treats and sip on unorthodox flavors of tea while my eyes feast on the Magnificence of Allah. I envisage witnessing His Divinity morphed as the vast green field with intermittent crests of hills, the clear blue sky furnished with soft floating clouds and then after dusk, studded meticulously with innumerable stars on a background of beautiful hues of purple and black. And then thrown in the scenes is the architecture gifted to us by medieval men and structures embodying the culture that once settled and perished along the way. Wow. This just has to make my bucket list before I get married. Stressful times like these necessitate a travelling break because even raving about them eases me up a little. Imagine their site as in images like these.

Sigh, back to the harrowing reality. Gotta try harder and pull my mess together. This can wait but the tirade of tasks ahead, can’t.
