Spring forward !

" I stuck my head out the window this morning
and spring kissed me bang in the face "
....Langston Hughes

As I look through my room
a cosmos of flowers
... in bright happy colors
smile at me ...and so my day begins...

every now and then
I am reminded of the flowers
I stop and smile
feel the colors around me
and again I smile

I can sense the scent
and I breathe deep
and I smile
I can feel the touch
soft, delicate
and again I smile

I see them swaying
on the tunes of gentle breeze
asking me not to walk...
but dance
for Spring is here
and I smile again:)

Are the birds chirping ...
has the spring sprung in your part of the world too?

Oh yes by the way did you see my Crocheted Art bus ??

Living out loud !!

This week I got the opportunity to board an Art Bus ...
Yes ...  that's right an Art Bus :)

This Art bus took us around the city , Dubai , and we had the rare opportunity
 to visit exhibitions at the independent art galleries 
and also to experience the annual art fair.

Accompanied by art guides the day-long tour was a chance 
to see art by international, regional and local artists 
while meeting like-minded people.

So today's post is all about this memorable day.

Call of the heart !

"This day is your life in miniature.
Make it brilliant."

...Robin Sharma

Hey woman...
do you hear me ??

Yes I am your tiny little heart
calling you
for so long
do you hear me ??

Remember your promise... will do what I beat for...
You will get drawn
the way I pull you...

Now don't pretend to be unaware of me
for I am awake... always
and you quite know
I will not lead you astray

So return to me...
minute by minute... day by day
follow me 
do you hear me ??

The way I live in you
 I want YOU to LIVE in me shake yourself...and
reach for that unreachable star.

do you hear me ?

That was a collage I made by recycling a few things
 and down here is my kitsch abstract art done last week :)

Did you listen to your little heart today??
Go it's worth it :)

My treasure !!

My 'family' is the precious most treasure I have...
and 'together' is the place I love to be !!

Family is not always love.
It's the people in your life who actually want you in theirs...
the ones who allow to be what you are
and accept you as you are

the ones who would do anything to see you smile
and will not let any tear come in your eyes
the ones who love you
in spite of all your follies

the ones who hug you
when you need it the most
lift you up when you are low
and believe in you no matter what...

I am blessed for I do have such a beautiful family :)

This week has been quite happening !

My 'Abhay" poster is a part of the Fearless Collective by Shilo Shiv Suleman in Bangalore.
This is an amazing campaign which talks about women empowerment.

My monks ( I swallow sunset ) have decided to bless Netty's house with love and peace :)
Yes, she has bought my painting.

I had a sweet chit chat with Disha  .....
Want to have a visit her at Design Decor and Disha

Oh yes Happy Women's Day to you all...

Within us is the power to create ...nurture and transform :)

"Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.

Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.” 

--Rabindranath Tagore

Aren't these words beautiful :)
I find them absolutely amazing and so very meaningful !!

We have the 'Power' of being Fearless...
... an undaunted spirit 
which we need to recognise
and then move on

It's time to show the world 
that you also EXIST
and that you deserve to be treated equal
and honored for what you are

 Totally ignore those
 who make you feel low and fearful
unfold your own stories
and rock on :)

Be "Abhay" ...the fearless...

Even if you are far less than being fearless
show the world that you are one :)
It really does :)
