Can you guess the city in the background?

"Perception is strong and sight weak. In strategy it is important to see distant things as if they were close and to take a distanced view of close things." 

(borrowed quote from a Japanese Swordsman )

I spent the last  few days of 2012 and the first few days of 2013 in a place called home. Four out of these twenty two days was spent in silence! Yes, a complete immersion in silence - an experience, ironically, I can't stop talking about :-) The time spent there has re-ignited, rejuvenated and reinforced whatever it takes to brave another new calendar year.

One of the best side effects of freelancing is the need to constantly reinvent oneself, dream a bit dangerously and sometimes outrageously, live on the edge of every project and still contribute like a champion. And I love that feeling. And I love that it gives me the time and space to pause, breathe, be inspired and learn continuouly.

On that note, I look forward to connecting, co-creating and working with you once again. I hope this year will be wonderful for us.

Best Wishes, Uma


  1. any of the German cities ?

  3. Good Show Uma!
    Silence is the fundament on which the strong building of words can be built. The deeper one goes in silence, the weightier expression one gets. Indeed it is great to give a break to the ever chattering mind!
    God Bless

  4. Happy new year to you too, Uma.
