A blog is never complete without an About Us page and I realized now that we didn't have one! Well, it's never too late, so I thought I might as well put it up now. Lifewordsmith started a couple of years ago with SoulMuser wanting to keep a track of what she reads. She introduced Birdy to the blog and Birdy was hooked. The circle slowly expanded until Thoughts joined in. There were a few others too, initially, but they weren't really avid book bloggers.
So now it's filtered down to us book junkies, always high on words and always savoring the rush that comes from reading a good book. It never fails to jumpstart a dreary day or liven up a rainy evening.
Here is a bit about each of us, so that you have an idea of what we are like :) We all live in Bangalore, India and we are all in jobs that require us to sit at a desk the entire day with a computer in front. But we come home to the best companions that life can give - books of course!
SoulMuser has always been a bit of a puzzle to herself. Writes a bit, travels a bit, and reads a lot more. She has taught English in China (and considering the present status of English in the country, you can see she was not very successful), dabbled in writing about cars, and is at present a weary writer masquerading as a research analyst in an investment firm. Her dream love has always been a book.
Birdy, is a writer/philosopher/good food lover/fitness enthusiast. She is a self-confessed chocolate junkie who loves her books and music. Travel and photography keep her insanity intact. She is perpetually wide-eyed at seeing life through the lens. She thinks that there is always time enough to stop and observe a crawling ladybug, watch a glorious sunset or simply have a cup of coffee with good conversation for company. For her life is not just a box of chocolates but much more.
Thoughts is an occasional writer, photographer, sports/exercise enthusiast and a traveler; but always always a passionate reader, a deep thinker and a wanderer (in the mind). She loves Bangalore, a city she has always lived in and where she currently works for a multi-national corporation. She also loves her rare solitude walks and silent evenings in this teeming city of close to 10 million people.
