Verbatim et Literatim


“Ends are not bad things, they just mean that something else is about to begin. And there are many things that don’t really end, anyway, they just begin again in a new way. Ends are not bad and many ends aren’t really an ending; some things are never-ending.”


Penelope Alacosta – a brilliant woman with a brilliant mind and brilliant ideas emerged (through the gates of heaven) and became the Source of (Ultimate) Light (SOUL) – an everlasting inspiration. From that moment on, the inspiration has created some masterpieces, time and time again. The most profound after effect of the inspiration was that the creative work became the foundation of an inseparable bond (between the SOUL and myself), lasting for decades. The SOUL was, is and will always be the real thing, without a reasonable doubt.

Verbatim et Literatim [Word for Word and Letter by Letter] – I took her name and broke it down into three sets of syllables and by utilizing the Sanskrit language, I came up with “Source of (Ultimate) Light” or SOUL. And, as life would have it, she turned out to be much more than just a friend.

“Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility. The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner tranquility. I am sustained by the tranquility of an upright and loyal heart.” – William Wordsworth

Penelope Alacosta ensured that there are no shortfalls in the ‘spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings’. The rule by which she regulated her conduct, was like a fountain yielding life and happiness into the creative art. She never showed a false indulgence. Never. She carried a very strong desire for the creative work, throughout. Thus, an unparalleled and inseparable bond blossomed for decades. For years, the young woman admired the creative works and in her own way, she gave in to the creative art. One thing she knew for sure…..that the creative artist isn’t a gold-digger nor is he ‘everyone’s leftover’……that alone, in and by itself, defined the character and integrity of the artist along with loyalty and sincerity.

2017 has been an exceptional year…..a phenomenal year. By the grace of God, everything is falling into place just the way it was destined to be. Decades-old relationships (family) have renewed themselves while some (newer ones, if any) have gone down in history as sickening and distasteful. Certainly, the grand finale is powerful. Get the grand finale wrong, and your development could be hindered by waiting for stuff that saps your vitality and consideration. A legitimately executed consummation, be that as it may, gives conclusion and cleanliness, preparing you to reach new heights with invigorated energy.

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what the storm’s all about.” ― Haruki Murakami
