From Dazzling Dubai to Magical Mumbai !!

(Mixed media...The Island of Love!)

The other day a friend asked
"Isn't it difficult to move from a place you love 
to a place that is absolutely strange to you?"
...and I smiled!
If nothing changed 
there would be no
butterflies :)

I have left
 a piece of my heart
 in so many places !!
 And the best part is 
each piece smiles 
whenever I remember that place!!
 Blessed I am :)
Collected moments...
made lots and lots of memories...
some friends for forever...
all this and much more...
that no one can steal!
So a new place..
.a fresh beginning...
beautiful location... inspirations...
curious faces...
new projects!!

Happily excited...loads of fun on my way :)

And yes how can I forget to mention my new house...
just like a new blank canvas...
ready to be filled with colours...
colours of newness...hope...

The scent of Dubai lingers on 
and will be there all my life
all that bling bling still makes my eyes sparkle 
those random memories I made with my friends
make my heart smile.
The paints I smeared my hands with
the creative journey...
the artists I met...
the little ones I taught
(or may be I learnt from)...
and so so so much more!!

Mumbai...another land in my own country
a brand new adventure...
lots to see
loads to create
meet new people
making the most of the energy in me
and the energy that surrounds me...
adorn the scrapbook of my heart
many many
new happy pages!! me is rearranging myself...
rearranging my thoughts
participating consciously
and living each moment as it comes!

So my lovely friends stay with me
 as I dream 
new dreams!!

Be a part like you have always been :)
