Dance...Love...Sing...Live !

A lover asked his beloved, 
Do you love yourself more 
than you love me? 

 The beloved replied, 
I have died to myself

and I live for you.

I've disappeared from myself
and my attributes.
I am present only for you.

I have forgotten all my learnings,
but from knowing you
I have become a scholar.

I have lost all my strength,
but from your power
I am able.

If I love myself
I love you.
If I love you
I love myself.


I hope you enjoyed my tea bag illustrations last week too !

Wondering why the first one has that pinkish hue?

...well I used the natural organic color from beetroot here  :)

Be awesome today !!


  1. Wow, love the idea of the beetroot juice for colour. All of these are gorgeous. Again love your tea bag art very much. I would love to try it sometime. I'll keep the beetroot juice in mind for my next piece. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.
