“What I know is that deep in the mountains where man, animals and nature share an ancient symbiotic relationship with each other, I found the best side of humanity.” - Lessons from the Himalayas.
Ive never imagined myself becoming a writer, or ever thought about showing anyone my writing, even though I started journaling at the age of 12. Writing has always been frightening to me, mostly because it reminds me of my father’s disapproving look. Nothing I wrote ever met his expectations.
Many friends suggested to set up a travel blog when I started the backpacking trip in India. I’ve always rejected the idea. Then one morning in Pokhara while sipping coffee and watching the Annapurna peaks glowing, I had a sudden urge to write. This may sound funky to you but the mountains wanted me to write. The Himalayas mountains, specifically.
And so writing I did.
6 months later, a photo magazine, which I am calling a journazine, is almost ready. I am super excited to see what it will look like and I’m ever grateful to have found a team of folks who are willing go beyond their busy schedules to help me make this publication happen.
Putting yourself and your work out there is fucking scary. I just want to remember this moment. How scary it feels. And knowing that it is still what I want to do. Because the mountains are calling, and I must write.
