NaNoWriMo in November has been quite an exhausting journey. This month, I have barely managed to write just two posts until now. However, I must admit that I have consciously started practicing the concept of a mindful break for a quarter now. So, I decided to let go of my guilt for not writing enough and instead cater to the need of my mind and soul.
Yesterday, I had been running through the pictures gallery on my laptop thinking of utilizing them to make another personalized item. I have a huge fetish for anything personalized – be it a notebook, a calendar, a mug or picture frame. It was during this process of reliving memories that I decided to do a series capturing the most special moments of this year every month. This has been a quite significant year both personally and professionally. So in the next series of posts, I would be sharing twelve different pictures from each month of this year featuring my most precious memories.
January is when we celebrated the festival of Saraswati Puja. While the Goddess of knowledge and wisdom has always been worshipped at my premarital home, this year we held a grand puja at my marital home. After the puja, my toddler was introduced to the world of learning through a ritual called hathe-khori in Bengali. As a witness to his new journey, my emotions swayed between being a proud and an emotional mother. Though I can’t wait for him to explore the new beginning now, at times I also wish that he didn’t have to grow up so fast.
Stay tuned to know what gets featured from my treasure of memories from February and March in the next post on 14th Dec.
