Our world is constantly changing, and so is our society. Social practices are changing all the time. What men wouldn’t dream of doing 10 years ago is slowly becoming commonplace. The 21st century man is able to express his feelings and emotions, cook, decorate, and dress stylishly, all while maintaining his masculinity. So where does that leave you? If you are visiting this blog, you're probably looking for some tips on how to improve your lifestyle. This is your chance to get started.

Thirteen

There are so many amazing poets that have blogs. Many of you have recently become part of my virtual peer group, or virtual friends. I don't consider myself a poet, but here are some lyrics to a song I wrote many years ago:

Wandering so slowly cross the line
Cast between reality and time
Treading on the shadow left by you
Nothing left that anyone can do

Realizing love is the answer
To the meaning of your scarlet dreams
And ego left behind in the meadow
Blowing forever tranquil in the breeze

Neel, maybe I'll hear this one day. I can love words, or a song's melody, but it's tough to make them dance together well. I have always wished I could write music and play an instrument. I know it's never too late. For now, I sing songs I love, and write.

If you're bold enough, maybe we'll hear you on audioblogger. It is a little nerve racking singing and having others listen. Responding to your last post, I now realize that I need to keep swimming back to the passion that drives me. So I will post "Tidal Love" on my own. Do you think that could inspire you to sing, or at least play the music with the words? Audioblogger sound quality kind of sucks, but it's a start.

Acoustic or electric guitar?

Yes, you may hear this one day. Thanks for telling me about audio blogger, I had never heard of it. Glad to hear you are going to post "Tidal Love". Acoustic, electric and everything in between.

Ms Laughs, you will have to be the judge of that. I may try Mermaid suggestion of Audioblogger.

I'm glad Transience wanders, when she wanders my way.

Here's a quote for you:

Cedia, I will post something in the next couple of days.

Mermaid, thanks again, I checked it out already. But the thing is you record it over the phone so it will be mono and and probably poor sound quality, but i will give it a try.

What's really weird is that your title is Thirteen and before this one, you had 13 comments. LOL. Just useless info.

Venus, thanks for stopping by. Actually I am a hybrid. My dad is from Bengal and my mother is from Lancashire, England. In some ways I feel Indian, but in many ways I feel English.

Thanks but those are lyrics I wrote quite some time ago, so my new hobby of poetry has not yet begun.

Stanks NEEL. Your blog is so o o o o different than mine, haha. I think it's time for another Dieting and Exercise post!

You are right! I was thinking about that this morning. I have been getting a lot of activity on this blog, so i have been neglecting the other two.

i hardly have time for my blog.. i can't imagine doing more than one.

The last line is my favorite. Great writing!

Blogger Sk8RN said...

I was wondering the same as Transcience - if you've set your lyrics to music. "Treading on the shadow" was my favorite line. It almost seemed reminiscent of blogging in itself - these words, like shadows, that we leave behind before heading back out into our off-line worlds. ;-)

Blogger Neel said...

Ms Laughs, I have no life. No, its difficult to stay on top of all of them.

Jenny, thanks so much! I really like your blog too!

Sk8r, you are right there are some similarities, and thanks very much!

Blogger Neel said...

Stella, I am not sure, I just try.

Natasha, I will post something on Audioblogger within the next week, but it may not be that song.

Gulnaz, thank you, I hope your neice is well.
