Day 4: Scallop

Day 4 Inktober 2022: Scallop

She walked down the busy market streets in her scallop dress, smiling and greeting at all only to be rushed and pushed around. Her desire was to be ordinary but how could she, she was a cut above the rest.

Day 2: Buddies

Day 2 Inktober 2022: Scurry

The first image that immediately came to my mind when I thought of scurry was Tom and Jerry. A show we have all grown up watching and still continue to watch when we are in a mood for a hearty laugh.

Day 1: Gargo the Guardian

Day 1 Inktober 2022 : Gargoyle

He sat perched atop an elongated spire of an old Gothic church watching the children play in the park. The evening Christmas lights lit up the streets of Amsterdam, the sound of bells and laughter jingled in the air. Gargo the Guardian let out a sigh of smoke as his absent-forgotten-heart secretly desired to glide down and dance with the crowd. But getting closer to the ground would only evoke fear, screams, and frowns. Alas, no one remembers that our dear gargoyle is no monster, he is an angel in the skies. ❤

#14 Tick Tock

Day 14 Inktober : Tick

I still have nightmares of not finishing my exam papers on time. The tick tock sound from a clock is usually relaxing but in this situation the ticking clock is more like a ticking bomb that would only add more stress counting down till the end.

#10 Tea Leaves

Day 10 Inktober : Pick

This has been kind of a dream job, wearing a basket over the head, picking those tender and fresh tea leaves and plucking them traditionally by hand. I know it’s not easy at all, but I would love to visit a tea estate in India someday.

#9 Social Pressure

Day 9 Inktober : Pressure

Meeting people, answering phone calls, answering video calls, replying back to messages and mails, living up to people’s expectations, interacting with people in a community, making small talk with strangers, contributing ideas in team meetings, engaging in group conversations, presenting presentations, dinner parties with large groups, listening to incessant loud chatter, being active on social networking sites and wondering why all this isn’t easy is a pressure that some of us, introverts, always have to deal with.
