A Note from Nirvani

Hello my dear friends and followers,

I apologize that I have not been writing as frequently as I had been.
I have been very focused on other passions in my life. I have taken up
belly dancing and have also been working very hard on fitness goals.
I have never been very good at multi-tasking. I tend to throw myself
into whatever I am feeling passionate about at the moment. I also have
never been one who could write multiple poems in a day. My mind
just does not work that way. I appreciate your patience with me and
hope that you will continue to follow. I am going nowhere!

Much Love,
Nirvani

Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.

Liebster Award

Thank you to to beloved Ajaytao for nominating me for this award…I am truly humbled my friend. You are such a dear man!

A few things about my self in question/answer form:

What first inspired you to start writing a blog? 

Well I started blogging a few years ago, so this is not my first blog…just my first in poetry. I have a spiritual blog called A Soul’s Journey listed under my other blogs, where I have shared my spiritual journey. I love blogging and sharing with others what inspires me!

If you traveled through time, what time would you want to arrive at and why? 

Probably back to when I had my first child, if I could have the mindset that I have now. I would do things so differently with the way in which I taught my children spirituality.

Do you prefer to eat chocolate, sweets or neither?

Anyone who knows me at all knows I have rather a fetish for dark chocolate…

Do you prefer to read or write?

As much as I love to write, nothing in the world could take the place of reading for me!

What is your favorite genre of writing and why?

I can’t say I have a favorite, although poetry is my first love to write, most especially haiku!

What is your favorite non-fiction topic to read about and why?

I cannot read enough on spirituality. Right now I am reading all about the Tantrick path in Sanatana Dharma. I am also studying Ayurveda, the chakras, and astrology.

If you could buy one book that would help you solve a problem in your life, what would it be and why?

The Bhagavad Gita for sure! It has all the answers for life. I have it obviously and read it regularly.

Do you prefer to write at night or during the day?

Most definitely during the day…late morning or early afternoon. I am no longer a night owl so am in bed by 10pm, usually reading myself to sleep.

If you could be any character from a book, who would you be and why? 

I would have to say Eowyn from Lord of the Rings….she was so courageous and loyal and she single-handedly took out the Witch King…she is bad-ass and beautiful!

Do you prefer to read a printed book or an e-Book?

I love my Kindle Fire, but nothing is more wonderful than to feel the pages of a book in your hand…Getting a new book is like having Christmas over and over again!

1. knocked over by a feather

2. Rolling With Vishnu -A Western Hindu
