One Year Old

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

Celebrating the first year anniversary of Muffled Solitude means turning a fastidiously critical eye on what I have written and tried to say for a year now. Against all my pains from its turning out to be so, my writing oftentimes came out ineffectual and utterly banal, almost bordering on becoming a cliché. Characteristic of dysfunctional narcissism, my daily drivel continually shifted from being didactic, to being dull, to being disdainful, to being depressive.

What I have posted so far - all 235 of them - revolved around the following themes:

  • All around help. Everything and anything about what occupies me from 8:30 am t0 6:30 pm.
  • Always a bookworm. Quotes from some books i have read; a shameless promotion of reading and literature to convert hardened "literary philistines" into bookworms.
  • Creative juices. All about the art of writing.
  • Equanimity lost and found. Being okay then losing it.
  • Girls and their ways; Men and their ways. How funny men and women can be, at times.
  • Irreverence. Questioning the existence of a superior being.
  • Love of my life. Our love story.
  • Memories exhumed and buried. Coming to terms with a failed relationship and the whole disorder of my life.
  • Pilak girls. The friends I grew up with and how they remain a part of my life despite the distance.
  • Sanity calms, but madness is more interesting. The play between reason and madness, and how one usually triumphs over the other.
  • Saying the unsayable. Thoughts and feelings that cannot, but must be, said.
  • Simple joys. Finding happiness in even the simplest of things.

Thank you!

I started reading your blog as a matutinal habit and graduated to intense addiction. I tried to lick this crapulence but gave up when they started invoking the power of a supreme being.

Thank you again!!
