The Christmas Poinsettia


We were invited for dinner to a friend's place yesterday.I had spoken to her many times on the phone, but it was the first time I was meeting her.It is strange that you get used to a voice and suddenly you have to associate a physical figure with it. She had a lovely home and some lovely poinsettia plants.When we were leaving, she gifted me one.
It looked so beautiful that I felt compelled to paint it.I made this painting this morning.The Christmas poinsettia.I love the red and the green next to each other.The contrast is striking, though I'm not sure that I managed to capture it!
But the important thing is that it gave me so much joy.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
