If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you”–a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc.– who would you choose to be?
I’d love to be Rabindranath Tagore, to see if all his creativity rubs off on me. His poems, his stories, his non-fiction and his songs is what makes him who he was.
For starters I’d like to concentrate on his songs and pay more attention to the lyrics. I’m always motivated by his songs, the soft melody makes the songs beautiful.
I always wanted to learn singing, but could not my mom was too scared for she thought I may not get the kind of education she wanted me to have.
Now it’s different I can live in the world of fantasy for a while and be what I’d like to be, a singer, who is able to play as many musical instruments as is humanly possible. Pull out of the archives some of the best songs of Tagore and sing them with ease much like a professional. That will be awesome for me!
Do you play an instrument? Is there a musical instrument whose sound you find particularly pleasing? Tell us a story about your experience or relationship with an instrument of your choice.
I love a few musical instruments, I wanted to learn to play harmonium, when I was thirteen, my mom thought it was a bad idea, she was afraid I’d neglect my studies. Later on I did learn to play it, I wasn’t able to continue due to lack of time and pressure of studies.
My husband bought a piano for me to satisfy my desire to learn to play it. This time there was a lot of things I was involved with, I could not concentrate on learning to play it. I did continue off and on, now I find I spend more time writing and reading, and I do not take time to practice the piano.
I love the sound of violin, I have watched this instrument played by various actors in several movies. There is not much of a story to tell,except I love the way it sounds.
Head to your favorite blog,scroll down to the third post. Take the third sentence in the post,and work it into a new post of your own.
I do not like to limit myself!
This universe has a lot of potential. I like to think if I try hard enough I can spread myself and see how much out there is within the realm of possibilities for me.
Yes I did limit myself in the past,thinking I was only good for one thing, teaching. I didn’t even give myself a chance to see what other things I can do successfully.
I watch the the young minds trying things before they settle for one thing. Incidentally I have come across bloggers who paint,write poems,play musical instruments, study and are still not satisfied.
When I look at myself I’m amazed to find myself limited to one thing, if I could turn back the clock,I’d do things differently to please myself only and not someone else who doesn’t care what I do.
Maybe if I get the chance to reincarnate, I’d try to do everything I shied away from,such as learn to skate,climb a mountain,learn to sing ,run a marathon, change my profession. There is a lot of things I can try so at the end of my adventure I could proudly say, win or lose “At least I gave myself a chance.”
“I do not like to limit myself”! These words are taken from Ali’s blog. Thanks Alienora.
