It is a strange feeling, saying good bye and not really going anywhere, which is why I haven’t done the inevitable to this blog. I think I have been sub consciously holding on, thinking that I would be returning to the bright yet confusing world of food blogging and photography. However, I have tried for eight months and I have zero inclination to go through this process again.
When I started this blog to chronicle my adventures in the kitchen, I didn’t expect it to go beyond writing down recipes and probably clicking a picture here and there on my cellphone to upload along with the posts. But this blog grew beyond that. I met an eclectic bunch of people, it was a wonderful medium to help me keep in touch with writing fun posts and explore the art of looking at food through a lens- new eyes rather! This blog also gave me the opportunity to go back to Photoshop, my most favorite graphic software, a friend that I had left behind at college but caught up with later in life.
All that said, I know that it is time to move on. I have reached that place in life where I have stopped looking at food as art and cooking as a medium to let out my creative flow. Instead, it has transformed into a chore I’d rather put off indefinitely… and this is exactly what blogging should not become. So many friends, virtual and actual, have asked me why I haven’t posted any recipes in so long and I could not think of a reason back then. I finally have one now and this is it.
This is not a good-bye, of course. I still write, I have a personal blog that has been trying to stay afloat for the past two years and it is going to be my only love for now. You could check it out if you are ever in need of an angsty observation of life and everything connected to it (who doesn’t, right?). My Instagram feed will also be active and full of yummy food that I either make or eat but not limited to that. And some day, I do hope I get back to talking about food. Until then, I am temporarily unavailable here.
