Pause ...

“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.” 

It's good to pause :) Every morning with my first sip of tea, I pause to enjoy the beauty of sunrise...yes,its like soaking myself in that energy and trying to absorb every bit of it.It is this moment which actually helps me to glide through the day :)

It is really really important to use that 'Pause' button as you play on the music of 'life' feel the count your thank Him with a heart filled with honor whatever you have :)

So if you did not do this today...
pause now...
smile to your heart...
capture the beauty of this moment...
celebrate for who you are...
it surely will make you feel better:)

Celebrating friendship :)

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart,and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Here is a list of things I would LUVVV to do with my friend :

  1.  wake up to see sunrise
  2.  take bicycles and go on a long ride
  3.  have breakfast together from the same plate
  4.  laugh at stupid jokes
  5.  sing funny songs
  6.  listen to her pointless dramas over and over again
  7.  pluck mangoes from someone else's yard
  8.  dance in the rain
  9.  do our favorite thing... nothing
  10.  watch sunset together

Actually the list has not finished as yet

11 watch a Disney movie
12 go through old photo albums
13 have some pillow fight
14 read a comic
15 laugh together
16 just be me :)

I know I listed quite a number of things there and still want to go on but I think I need to link this to 
Inspiration Avenue where everybody is celebrating friendship :)

Smile Dose...

'Sometimes', said Pooh,"the smallest things take up the most room in your heart".
                                                                              -A.A.Milne,Winnie the Pooh

This amazing picture was taken by my son one evening during our visit to Kashmir.

(Remember I showed you some other breathtaking pictures in my earlier post...Learnt so much ! )

Now,birds yes  birds have always had a special room in my heart...( I just love that Pooh quote I mentioned above)

They with their size so small, have always inspired me to take big flights...
to stretch my wings with all my might

They with their sweet songs have told me to find one...
and play it on my lips when going gets tough

Stray birds come to my window...and in my back yard
to sing songs of love

and as they fly away...
I sigh not...

but keep their song in my heart...
for another day :)

Don't you love my little clay birdie ??
Ohh...I simply adore it :)

It makes me smile whenever I look at her..
She is my SMILE DOSE of the day:)

Did you have yours today??

Keep smiling...keep singing :)

Break free...

Breathe in deep
breathe out long
open your eyes
feel the beauty around 
rise and touch the life
you are alive...
with power abundant...
realize it...fear not 
break the barriers of the past
look again...
its a new day...
another chance...
seize the moment...
perfect it...

move ...forward...
onward ...upward...!!

Color of LIFE

I sat down to think ...
which one is my favorite color ...
looked at the jar of crayons
peeped into my box of paints...
thinking...I closed my eyes...

oranges of sunrise...or of tangerines
blues of the sky or turquoise of the oceans
fresh greens of fields or the deep one of the olives
the cheerful yellow of lemons or the luminous daffodils
the perfect pinks of a lotus or a new born baby's cheeks
browns of hot melting chocolate or the earthy terra-cotta
reds of a perfect ripe tomato or of a beating heart
indigo of the deep midnight sky or the mysterious violet
white of an angel's wings or that of a flawless pearl
shades of a rainbow or pretty butterflies

and then a flash of blissful smile
made me realize... 
with its various hues and shades and so much more
 its the color of LIFE that I just adore !!

'Copada' swan

It has been quite some time since I participated in The Diva's challenge . I know I have missed a lot but then I was away creating ...memories and celebrating my vacations...well I did do that :)

This week's tangle prompt is 'Copada' by Margaret Bremner . Now in the beginning I just did not know what to do with this tangle but then when it started to flow I was surprised to see that it kind of took the shape of a swan :) So here it was my Copada swan ...what do you say??

Learnt so much...

If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."
                                                                     Roald Dahl

This summer has been truly a summer filled with lots of bright colors of fun ,joy and enchantment. We have
had a blessed vacation with family and friends.

We visited the Paradise on Earth...Kashmir. I gathered a lot of memories and will carry them in my heart for years to come. I tried to enjoy the simplest of things and must tell you all that beauty does lie in simple things.

The high rugged mountains taught me to hold my head high even when the path is sure to make me stumble...

the dancing waters of the river told me to move on ...and on... with a song in my heart and a smile in my eyes...

the still lake taught me to be calm ...and to feel at peace...

the flowers and all the fauna around  told me to be awesomely awake ...and to celebrate life :)

The fresh cool breeze whispered in my ears to breathe...deep...really deep...and to be grateful !

Each sunrise inspired the 'me' in me to welcome the new dawn and make the most of it ...

every moonlit night made me believe that 'wherever your heart will find your treasure'...

Oh! so much to be thankful about...!!

There is a lot to talk about Kashmir...another post on art ...soon :)
