Write It Loud

July 9, 2020

“I worked for a paper company all
these years and never wrote anything down.”

There were plenty of things that
pulled a string here and there in my heart as I watched the Finale episode of
“The Office”. But this seemingly simple dialogue by Phyllis totally blew my
mind and resonated with me at various levels. In an uncharacteristic style it
hit home the fact that we all may have some aspects of our life which
ironically bring home the point that often we miss to do the most ordinary yet
valuable things for umpteen reasons. But never because we lacked the resources
or skill or potential to do it.

So how and why does this context
resonate with me? Because being a designer/academician for years now I have
thought and spoken, spoken and thought, spoken without thinking and thought
without speaking. But not so often have I written or penned the beautiful
moments, the beautiful connections and the beautiful creations between my
thought and speech. How often, Oh how often have I been tempted to pen them
down, how often have I marvelled at what I said or thought, how often have I
wanted to remember and smile again at the witty folly that has tickled my mind
and speech. But how often have I been simply lazy, how often have I just let
brilliance slip into oblivion, how often have I missed the magic of the mundane
simply because like a blitzkrieg it came, conquered and dissipated all too

Not that I have never written, Good
Lord No!  I have written essays, reports,
documents, feedbacks, researches and a whole lot of other important and
critical jargon meditating out of necessity. Being a designer, they were mostly
well organized and designed too. They were personal to a large extent, but
adhering to the format, context and the audience to an even larger extent. But
so would have Phyllis written and printed something on the Dunder Mifflin

 But yet again, the fact is that “she never
wrote down”, she never wrote down what and how she felt, she never wrote down
what meant important and how it meant important to her, she never wrote down
what ignited her emotions.  And she never
wrote down something that when she read in future would make her heart skip a
beat, choke a breath in her throat, bring a smile on her lips and create a
soothing warm ripple through her skin.

But Phyllis never said all the above
at all! Did I really hear what she left unsaid? Did I really hear what she
really meant? Did I really feel what she felt at that moment?

Not really! All the above is a mirror
of what I have been feeling lately and what I have been wanting to do. What was
said was only what I actually was seeking to hear and what I REALLY wanted to
say to myself.

So, what I REALLY want to say to myself is that
go ahead- write your heart out. Write a line, a thought, a stanza, a poem or a
Blog like this one. But just “write it loud”!
