Of Writing and Flight

Hello, friends. I am delighted to tell you that my blog has just completed two years and I would like to thank you owl on this occasion. I have tried to bring you my nuanced and balanced reflections from the worlds of economics, business, politics and culture since October 2018. During the past year I have also been sharing my thoughts and ideas on brands, since I am a brand strategist and writer from the advertising and brand communications industry in India. And I have been sharing my thoughts through my Owl Wisdom Podcasts, each month.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog posts. They are meant to bring you a wise-eyed view of the world, quite distinct from the news coverage that I am sure, you are following. That’s why I chose the owl as my mascot and together we’ve been flying to many different realms of life in order to make sense of this ever-changing world.

You’ll notice I have added a quill to my blog’s logo to commemorate the 2nd anniversary and we all know the connection between quills and writing. But did you know that they share another connection through a word that actually means flight? I happened to discover recently in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable that pen and feather both have their roots in a Sanskrit word pat, which means wing or instrument for flying.

What writing has in common with flight

By a pleasant coincidence then, Peripatetic Perch has been writing and flying for the past two years. And doesn’t writing have to do with flights of imagination, anyway?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and reading my posts. Here’s to another year of wise-eyed viewing and I hope you will join me on my journeys.
