Hope all of you are busy making
your December a one to remember...always!
I am sure many of you
must have already set your goals
for the coming new year 2015
In this season of giving...and believing
of sparkles ...and carols
of dreams....and treats
of joys ...and cheers
I wish all of you the very Best!!
Follow your obsessions...mercilessly!
My goal for 2015
has been favorited by Good Housekeeping Middle East
and they have featured me in their December 2014 issue.
I am sure you all would like to know about it too!
So here I tell how I aim to make 2015 a Year Of Me!
I aim to publish a book of my Illustrated Recipes for kids with special needs.
This is what I told them and they published...
"Children learn a lot more from graphic sources now than in the past.
Art is undoubtedly a way to encourage the process
and the experience of thinking and making things better.
While the child sees the bright,
colourful illustrations, touches the pages ,
listens to the words spoken by his parents or siblings about it
...he would be working on his multi-sensory learning.
And the experience will get even more enhanced
when he actually touches the ingredients
and starts the process of making/ assembling/ plating a dish for himself!
I firmly believe that my recipe illustrations
will not only be a visual feast for these kids
but also encourage them
to definitely try out a small snack for themselves
and be a "Special Chef" in their own special way.
Since everything right from the ingredients to the directions is painted,
I am sure they would be delighted to follow and try the recipes.
Though some of them would need help
to accomplish this
but I am still confident that they will be really happy at heart!
I hope and sincerely wish my illustrated recipes
would engage their attention,
make them experience the whole process and help them to be an achiever in the end.
The recipes are going to be eye candy even for the other kids and moms too !!
Each mark of my pencil and every stroke of my brush
would connect me to my true self
and open me up to grace…
and the same kind of magical feeling
should be experienced by those who get to see,
touch and feel my book.
I don’t want it to be “just another book” tossed aside
after a quick glance through
and so it is a big challenge that I have given to myself.
The creativity, the colours, the details all need to be worked upon.
It demands a lot of hard work…and I am all set to jump in!
I am making a thorough research on the special areas
so as to make my book substantial, effective, impressive and lovable.
In short a “delicious delight”!
Finding a publisher who understands
the sentiment behind my book is important too.
I will keep going with the flow
and let my intuitive sense guide me through.
So I am going to look each challenge dead in the eye and give a wink!
You are different and believe me
your different is different than my different.
Whatever you have been blessed with
and can do,
no one else has and can do in the way you can
and that instantly makes it unique and precious.
unravel that YOU within…
for you are blissfully amazing.
In your eyes is heaven, in your heart...love and compassion.
Feel the dance in your steps and magic on your fingertips…
every moment of the day.
Did you know that 'glitter' is a color too?
Go love it!
“Sparkle” does ignite a spark...
Celebrate being a woman…
bloom and bloom in abundance!"
I would love to know what are you aiming at in 2015!!
