Escape To Atar Life – A Place Where Writers and Readers Can Get Away
Should I lock myself in my little boat so I can get on with writing, should I go and start living a “serious life”, or should I just say “screw this, I’m gonna chill”? Artistic people – and writers specifically – share the same struggle: we are trying to maintain our “being in a bubble” state and let those creative flows running in our blood, yet we need to contribute to the everyday, monotonic life, and keep up with duties and news of many kinds.
The golden fine line, Atar Life presents writers in a simple, easy to view format allowing the words and thoughts of our contributors to receive the maximum exposure. “Life is complicated. Atar Life is not. Our mission is to provide a place on the Internet for writers and readers to come together and discuss some of the most important issues of the day.” – says the description of the site.
“Do I like to write? Why? About what?” – I’m asking myself often, and as a writer, who’s making a living out of putting words next to each other I sometimes come to the same conclusion as my favorite author, Slyvia Plath did. Will I give up and say, “Living and feeding a man’s insatiable guts and begetting children occupies my whole life, I don’t have time to write”? I want to write because I have the urge to excel in one medium of translation and expression of life.
I can’t be satisfied with the colossal job of merely living. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person.” But just as Sylvia I am also not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have. Yet nowdays, thanks to social media, community forums, ans platforms such as Atar Life there is a way to live a busy life, and stay focused on one’s artistic side.
I believe there’s a fine line between the sides, where we could open discussions and try to learn more about each other’s point of views – without dismissing the different opinions. There is too much destruction, hatred, discrimination and ignorance, but we can change this with sharing our thoughts about acceptance, unconditional love, and human dignity.
Writing for Atar Life means to me that one can promote seeing a bigger picture and reading other’s write ups keeps me opened to experience different people’s realities, narratives, and point of views. This is the only way of becoming the better versions of ourselves: sharing, receiving, and keeping the balance between these two poles.
The goal is clear: bringing the readers knowledge and experience, and of course giving the contributors a highly visible platform for their writing. A few words from the good people who started out Atar Life. “We value our readers as much as our writers. Without our readers, there is no reason for our writers. And to that end, we provide a place on the Web that our readers can always depend on finding information that is informative and entertaining.”
As a bit of a tease, here’s a little preview of one of my articles, where I discuss about how freedom needs to be re-invented and re-defined. “I say it’s time to separate from each other “selfish” freedom, and “universal” freedom. Subjective freedom has nothing to do with positive change in the world, because it can be used as an excuse of whoever, as a justification to do whatever he feels like doing. Objective freedom on the other hand gains communal benefits for all of us, and helps us to step forward as humanity.”
Follow my write ups and some of your favorite writers, let your friends and favorite writers know about this unique option of sharing information, values, art, emotions, and most importantly, a feeling of belonging. At Atar Life we are here to give you an informative and enjoyable look at everyday life.
