It seems to be that whenever I go to a Shammi Pithia concert, I seem to have an idea of creating another book. In February earlier this year, I attended a concert of his and the book ‘Reflections of the Formless’ was born. Now it seems that this Saturday followed the same tradition.
To give a little context, I had thought that I wouldn’t be writing another poetry book for another two years as I had a few projects already in hand that I wanted to concentrate on. However, it seems that every project has it’s own time and place.
During one of the songs that was harmoniously played towards the heavens, the words ‘The Beloved’ came through across the screen of my mind. It was something that I couldn’t really ignore. Then random lines would appear of what would shape the project and also how the project would be presented.
The title is ‘The Beloved’ and the release date will be announced shortly. I haven’t done a project plan or anything yet, so you have to bear with me. All I know is that this book may be written by me but the voice will be of another. I know why this book is being created and it is to lay the foundation for a future project. It will be released Kindle only.
I feel the whole point of art is to inspire. Like music is poetry and poetry is music. All art is interlinked and interconnected. For us artists, we are nothing but instruments, which allow a deeper level of consciousness to explore itself in the human dimension.
