This post is a generalized one. It is fair for all to have an opinion about it, although, it would help if they were not conveyed, except if they empowering or optimistic. otherwise, they might defeat the purpose of the post itself.  Tread with caution.   Yeah, I am depressed. And I am not ashamed! … Continue reading Stigma!

Warriors Need Rescuing Too!

She was as pale as a blank page, Waiting for words to be written, She was waiting to be colored, She was an empty glass of magic. She was all drained and dry. Her skin, peeled off white, fell away, Her colors left her a shade lighter, Every morning. She woke up every day, Like … Continue reading Warriors Need Rescuing Too!

It’s all in your head!

It’s all in your head! So what exactly is in my head? A complete analysis-cum-confession that I am crazy. Yes, self-diagnosed with a mental illness that probably no one else gives a damn about! I cry more. I get very angry. Uncontrollably and monstrously. I roar in anger, I get tremors in my body and … Continue reading It’s all in your head!

The Strix ~ Silence

I’m proud to be one of us!❤

The Strix

Happy to present you another collaboration we created and this time the topic was Zigyasa’s choice: very excited our art-sister could rejoin us. Sarah stepped in for John again, thanks dear! and last but definitely not least: the lovely Jyotee, our guest-artist at this collab.

In the Netherlands we have a quote “Spreken is zilver, zwijgen is goud”, translated it is: “Speaking is silver, silence is golden”. Yes, there are times you should think twice before you speak and the way you talk to someone, is also something to think about. However,

I strongly believe – and I am certain The Strix does too – your voices are worthy to be heard!

One of the best ways to speak up, to communicate, to connect is via art: Poetry, Music, Stories, Thoughts, Paints, Sketches, et cetera.

Enjoy the voices of The Strix through our art…

Their legs hung over the edge of the cliff, teasing each other, giggling and throwing back their heads in laughter, the air cleansing their souls, and the echoes ringing in their ears, it was all so pure. The birds were about to fly back to their nests, the air had become cooler, and the clouds … Continue reading Silence


She’d be lying if she said she wasn’t anxious about ending the year. Maybe this is how it was done. Maybe you weren’t required to review the whole year before it ended just before midnight. But she felt restless. And she hadn’t been doing so for more than two years now. She had to get … Continue reading 🎉 HAPPY NEW YEAR 🎉



December, January, February. In the Netherlands, winter arrives and stay for at least these three months. Maybe you dreaded this season like I did. The temperature falls, the days get shorter, the nights longer and the sun seems to disappear, as if she wants to hide for this dark period, just like most of us wants … Continue reading WINTER SOLSTICE-THE STRIX


She wanted no more. She was exasperated of sadness. She only wanted happiness, She chose joy over sorrow, She chose her own company, Over crying for being lonely. She chose her friends, who stayed, She chose her laughter, her smiles. Stopping every once in a while, She cherished her life. She cried the sorrow out, … Continue reading Enough!
