Avalon Sunset


“I didn’t ask for it to be over, but then again, I never asked for it to begin. For that’s the way it is with life, as some of of the most beautiful days come completely by chance. But even the most beautiful days, eventually have their sunsets

  1. I love that! I've felt that! Just couldn't say it like that, of course. But sometimes, there are days so great you don't want them to end.

  6. 93,000,000 miles away
    a burning ball of light
    sends it rays
    to heat the earth
    to warm the life
    that dwells there.
    We feel the light as heat,
    but what we see
    is amazing
    the sunset or sunrise
    captivates
    the painter
    the photographer.
    Yet how many I have seen
    I could not say
    but each unique
    so each one I see
    I see for the very first time.

  9. At times... it's the sunset that overshadows everything else that the day brought.

  10. A classic song! I love the photo! Such a feeling of space, I can almost hear the sound of the waves and feel the sand beneath my feet. I just love sunsets and sunrises. Each sunrise promises a new day full of potential and each sunset is a beautiful day to either cap off a bad day or the perfect ending.

  14. How lovely!..what is so wonderful to me is that all us little bloggers scattered around the world may be linked electronically..but when we set our eyes to the sky..we gaze upon the same sun. And as we stand and see the day come to a close..somewhere else the day is just begining. Tommorow I will close my eyes and feel the warmth of the sun and I'll listen again to this track and think of you and all my other friends out there linked by life and friendship!

    Thank you Preeti for a lovely post!

    Sigh.....

  16. ....and since the sun is eight light minutes away from us, it is haunting to think that it was gone eight minutes prior to our seeing it go. That always just gets me.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
