Love lives on !

Here is a small story I recently read....

Pencil ✏: I'm sorry.

Eraser : For what? You didn't do anything wrong.

✏Pencil: I'm sorry, you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you're always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself and get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That's true, but I don't really mind. You see, I was made to do this, I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong, even though one day I know I'll be gone. I'm actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying I hate seeing you sad.

Our Parents are like the eraser...
and we children are the pencil. 
They're always there for us children, 
cleaning up our mistakes.
Along the way they get hurt
 and wear off...
but still they are always there
for us...

 No matter how old we get 
the abundance of their unconditional  love
care ...
stays as it was
 when we were just born...

Now its our turn...
to give back...
we are the ones who have heard their heart beat from inside 
and now is the time to listen to the same heart from outside...

Lets give them more...
more of our time
more of our love
more care
more smiles
more hugs  

we always talk about making the world better for our kids

lets also act to make this world comfortable for our parents!!

This is an abstract work which I am doing for a dear friend of mine...
(it is really big)
what do you think I should call this painting?


  1. Your art work is divine! Love the story and would love to know the source ~ Happy PPF ^_^

  2. what a lovely story and post. You are so right - everything nowadays is geared towards the children so much so that the elder family members get overlooked.
    Your big abstract is beautiful. For some reason when I looked it,it made me think of apple blossom.

  3. I love your story and your portrait is so soft and beautiful. Love your abstract! It reminds me of a big city scape.Happy PPF!

  4. So beautifully written... I totally enjoyed this!

  5. Love the pencil and eraser story. Your painting is beautiful and your abstract so fascinating. I think you should let it tell you what it wants to be called. Happy PPF. xox

  6. Loving your wonderful post, such a fab story and so true. I love your artwork.
    Happy PPF, Annette x

  7. Beautiful as always and love the story. HPPF!

  8. Such sage advice and illustrated so beautifully.

  9. Oh I love this bit of philosophy!! So well done...and so true...I am so blessed to have a child and her partner who treat me like pure gold...I am thankfully everyday for that! I know I have also been so kind and supportive and that's why I reap these rewards!! Beautiful work...phenomenal post!

    Hugs Giggles

  10. So beautiful..and powerfully said..gorgeous words of wisdom. I love the softness/texture fo this deeply gorgeous..and beautiful photos!
    Shine on..fantastic post!

  11. As the son of some loving parents and a father of 2 girls, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your analogy of a pencil to sacrificial love. Your page is glorious and can't wait to see your finished abstract piece. As to a name for the latter, for some reason the word "shadows" comes to mind. However, I may change my mind once you're finished. Blessings, my friend!

  12. I love your work and your thoughts, I think I titled the work "Multitude and Solitude". Saludos

  13. !I love the story, Ritu. The texture of the paper of the portrait really adds to it - beautiful. I am really terrible at naming pieces... but I like La Abela' suggestion:-)

  14. beautiful work! love the soft sweet face and flower...happy PPF!

  15. I love that wonderful, soft portrait. I am very drawn to your abstract piece and also see a cityscape there. That analogy of pencil and eraser to child and parent is just beautiful. HPPF

  16. I loved your beautiful story Rita... and your art.

    What to call your picture? 'Oh No!' I see a person going headlong into something!!! I don't know what that says about me!

    Looking forward to seeing how it develops!!!

  17. OH my goodness! Your concept of pencils and erasers / parents and children made me tear up! I love the thoughtfulness you bring to us and your work. It gives everything you do so much meaning. Thank you too for your sweet comment - you really made my day! I'm a such a fan of your work, xoxo

  18. such magnificent art ...
    and so true message ...

  19. The face is pretty, so soft and delicate, and such a contrast to the abstract painting which feels so strong.

  20. Wonderful story and beautiful painting. I totally adore your abstract!

  21. Mesmerising! And I love the soft colour and texture. Thank you for sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

    Ritu I too visited Kashmir and agree, "paradise on earth".

  22. Wow your story blow me away, quite wonderful! The paintings are wonderful too!!!! the abstract one is stunning...I would call it "waiting for the snow" :) ♥ Conny

  23. This is beautiful. And what a lovely story.
