The Daily Post Discover Challenge : Adventure

The wonderful thing about adventure is the sheer range of options: there’s no need to leave home (or even your chair!) to have an adventure if you write, paint, sculpt, draw, compose, or take photographs. Every creative endeavor is an adventure of its own with the chance to change us “in the most beautiful way.”

This challenge is wide-open to interpretation for writers, photographers, artists, and composers. Render an adventure — real or imaginary — in your chosen medium, tell us what adventure means to you, or share the adventure(s) you dream of having.

A few years ago we had been to Sofia in Bulgaria. My husband went to attend a Dental conference. Sofia is not a very big place. While my husband was attending the conference, I would take the road map and explore the place. Our hotel was a little away from the main town. But there was a five star hotel nearby, that was a good landmark. One afternoon I set out and walked and sat and enjoyed the place. Somewhere along the roads I missed a turning and walked and walked but could not find a familiar place. The language was also a problem. It was getting late and I was getting really worried. Near a tram station I showed a lady the map and told her I wanted to go near the five star hotel. She told me to go in the tram to the last station. I did that, I had come a long way away. I got down at the last station and to my great relief saw the five star Hotel and near it our hotel. This was an adventure which I never want to repeat. Even thinking about it makes me wonder what would have happened if I had not found my way back. !!

On the way I met this sweet lady who was selling laces, they were beautiful but too expensive for me.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. The Covid has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
