Project 365: Day 0 – The beginning 13

This was the first post of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.

1st July 2014 – Singapore

From dust we rose and to dust we shall go
And dust is all this nomad sees on his toe.
Like a whisper metamorphosing into a shout
me too, valiantly, searches for a reckless way out.

The way out – Day 0 in Singapore

Yesterday was my last day at work. Walked in like a boss, signed my relieving letters, and opened a Pandora’s box of uncertainties and doubts. This is going to a looooong year!

So, this is my gap year. While most people take their gap years at 19 or 20, I couldn’t do that back then. I had a family to take care of. Since all that is settled and sorted, and at the ripe young (!!) age of 30, I am setting out for a gap year.

And over the course of this year, this photography project 365 will be an attempt to track and document this year amazing of my life. Combining 2 things I love the most – poetry and photography – I will be posting 1 picture, and a simple verse to go with it, for the next 365 days of my life.

And today is a prelude.

You can also follow the project on my Facebook page.
