Pandora’s Tower: A Fresh Start

I don’t even know where to begin, I am not gonna make excuses for my lackluster and total drab approach to my blogging in these past months. I simply lost the spark that I once had in me when I started this blog over two years ago. Over this course of time, I have been able to reflect and experience a lot from the world and life as a whole. I had a brief identity crisis(not in the universal sense) but more in the social sense, I wasn’t sure exactly which group or faction or demographic I actually belonged to. I’ve had friends from all over the world but only a meager handful can I actually consider to be close associates. Don’t get me wrong, most of these acquaintances I am talking about are just regular people with their own ideals and beliefs, I just never found a certain group of people that i could relate to on a very personal and intimate level. I eventually realized that that was one of my biggest errors, expecting people to change or bend to suite my conjecture. Over these past months I have learnt that the best way to deal with people in general is to accept them for who they are, now I know that sounds like a maxim from an Oscar bait Paul Haggis movie but I assure you that the similarities end there. It took me a while to realize that the reason why I could never really fit with a certain clique was because I myself am a  chaotic concoction of various conflicting ideologies and philosophies, much similar to every other Tom, Dick and Harry on this giant blue ball of existence we call Earth.

Hence, I have decided to continue blogging like I used to, this particular segment will be called Pandora’s Tower as eponymously suggested above and the reason is this. Over time I have read various articles online about different topics from politics to sports to religion to entertainment etc, and it dawned on me that much like the Greek philosophies and mythology(which I am a huge fan of) our world is very reminiscent of what our forefathers perceived in their superstitions and myths, the only difference is that we have evolved over time to understand certain phenomenons around us instead of just chucking it to a grand design or ploy from a being of intelligent design. I chose Pandora’s Tower because I see the world as a huge fort of secrets and hard truths veiled in exquisite deception and alluring lies. Now one can choose to bask in these lies and actually live a false but happy life(who am I to judge) or one could boldly go and unravel or dare say unbox the container of deceit to see the world for what it truly is, wherein opening themselves to the harsh reality just like what happened to Pandora. I also refer to it as Pandora’s Tower rather than box cause the world ain’t just one large box but a towering castle of secrets and unfathomable truths concealed in layers. This is what i will talk about for the next couple of days, until I get a proper idea of where i want to take the rest of my blog to. In the mean time, I think i will upload more of the short stories that I have written over time and get back to expressing my love for movies like I once did. SO in a nutshell, from tomorrow I plan on writing about my past experiences, my ideologies and beliefs, my convictions and so more. I will use this blog as a platform to air my views like I’ve never done, I am done bottling up all my thoughts out of fear or a lack of understanding. It seems recently that every one with an internet access now can voice their opinions no matter how egregious it may seem, and even if I don’t agree with most of what I see or read, I do commend the bravery of whoever has the gonads to voice their opinions, however popular or unpopular, because the world doesn’t owe us anything and morality is not a universal obligation. Not every one will agree with my views but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. I won’t kowtow to social pressure or pander to societal norms.

This is a reintroduction of sorts and I intend to make this a new habit and hobby of mine as that is something I have a great deal of problem maintaining, consistency. I look forward to writing more and hearing from anyone out there in the ether with an opinion or two. Please feel free to air your thoughts and no views will be looked down upon. Please also bear with me and my writing skills, I’ve been out of the game for a significantly long time and would like to get back into it by practicing. Till next time. Szia.
