I’m Katka and I am on the shore. If you’re now wondering why I’m ‘on the shore’, I’ll give you three hints:
- Do you know the book Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami? So there’s the first why.
- Some of my foreign friends were struggling with pronouncing my name and kept calling me Kafka. Thank God they didn’t call me Franz.
- Until recently I lived on the shore.
I started ‘Katka on the Shore’ on 15 November 2014 – shortly after my birthday – to cope with the depression of getting old (no kidding) but I began to write long before that, mostly poems and short stories about my dreams (my actual dreams at night), love and relationships. I even had a blog before this one, but after realising the blogspot is dead and the defeat of having a total number of zero followers I decided to change the scene and here I am. An amateur writer/photographer, who believes one day to become a professional, and a professional hedonist/idealist, who hopes can live this way forever.
This is a blog about an adventure called life on the background of growing up, learning, and (sometimes) traveling. It is my passion and about my passions. I spend a good deal of my days thinking, contemplating and daydreaming about… THINGS. Regular things, everyday things, fascinating things. I like to seek beauty and truth in them. And I want to write about them.
This blog does not have one specific theme or goal. It is influenced by all the people I have met, all the books I have read and all the conversations I have overheard or led. Everybody and everything can be my inspiration.
I believe this quote from one of my favourite books best describes it:
“In avoiding specific goals he had avoided specific limitations. For the time being the world, life itself, could be his chosen field.” Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road.
I am happy you visited Katka on the Shore and I hope it becomes a pleasant and inspiring part of the world wide web.
