About the end of “Nostalgia”

I’ve been thinking a lot/ dangerous!/ since I posted part 3 of “Nostalgia” and in my attempts to write down the end, I’ve decided that some things are better left alone, in the past, where they belong. To tell you the truth, my major discovery writing “Nostalgia” was that writing non-fiction is really hard and emotionally consuming, beyond repair. I thought since I don’t have to use my imagination to come up with the actions and the words, because they already exist, it would be easy. All I needed was a creative presentation. Wrong! It takes more than creativity …

To those who wanted a happy end of the story, unfortunately, I can’t offer you one. But know, if there was a happy end in this particular story, I wouldn’t be in Greece right now, I wouldn’t have discovered the charm in learning languages. I probably wouldn’t speak English or write poetry and I wouldn’t know any of you that I’ve met through my poetry blog, so this is the only good outcome I can offer you right now.

Someone asked me years ago, how do I still have faith in love and romance, when the right question should’ve been- How many times love can take the life out of your heart before it stops beating? The answers is – as long as you have faith, your heart will always survive …

Few months ago I started a fictional story, which has the capacity to grow into a novel/ this is to answer Victoria’s question about turning one of my stories into a novel/. The winter blues and the cold had a bad effect on my inspiration and I stopped the research for the story. Since I’ve discovered that I’m a much better writer/ if I can call myself a writer at all!/ when it comes to fiction, I will continue with what I’ve started last summer. And who knows, one day there might be a book with my name on it?!?

The events in the story take part in India, so, to all readers and visitors, Indian or not, if there is anything that you would like to share about the country, interesting facts, places or traditions worth exploring, maybe books that could help me learn more about it, anything connected to India, please, feel free to share with me. There will be a page on the top right side of my blog called “Sparkles of India”, it will be a place open for suggestions, discussions, facts about India.

And to end this post, I would like to say “Thank you” to everyone that have been and will continue to be part of my blog. I sometimes don’t get the chance to return visits or find good enough words to express my gratitude or appreciation of your talents, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t notice every act of kindness and every word you create …

Love & Peace …

    Hi Blaga,
    I’ve missed so many posts on your blog. Mainly because I don’t have time to read long texts as you probably know. But I read this one and it really makes me want to read your story. I think I’ll do in a few weeks when I’m not stressed/busy/tired anymore.
    And English is not your first language?? I’m impressed! I’ve always thought it was since you write such a beautiful poetry! I have so many questions to ask but I don’t want to bother you. Ahah
    Have a nice evening, Blaga!

      Thank you Charlotte! As I said on your blog, no worries about the reading, it’s not an obligation, it should be a pleasure … Regards to the French riviera (that I’ve always wanted to visit, but still haven’t) from still dark (early morning here) Athens …

    Well, life doesn’t always have a happy ending, but I think you were right to leave it as it is now, rather than try to force it to be something it wasn’t meant to be. I think you’re also probably right about how hard and emotionally consuming writing non-fiction is/can be. You ARE a writer (you can call yourself one all day long, as far as I am concerned, because it’s true!) and you just keep getting better and better, my friend. I’m looking forward to seeing how your story in India turns out.

I so deeply admire your determination to never give up and keep your hope and faith in love alive, even after all you have been through. You're one of my heroines, you know? :)

      What an early morning delight is to read your comment Corina! You always bring inspiration and motivation with your words and usually words fail me in moments like this to express how much your friendship means … All the best to you too my dear friend! Regards!
