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.

  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!

  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.

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…

Three powerful things every aspiring writer must do.

On Saturday, I got a message from my publisher.
'Check the Hindustan Times today; We're at No.5 and No.8,' he said.

I checked immediately, and my heart leapt up in joy.  TWO of my books were indeed among the highest selling fiction books in the country. My publisher also sent me this nice creative!




 I felt very happy, because it's not easy for a book to climb into the charts MONTHS after it's release. In the case of Life is What You Make It, it is TEN YEARS since  I wrote that book. Having the books there was validation that people find comfort and joy in my writing.

I have grown as a writer, with every book I have written. I do work very hard at my craft. I am constantly trying to write better. I write every single day---although everything is not for publication. I have a desk full of notebooks and diaries which I have filled over the years. I have my gratitude journal, my daily journal, my story ideas, my blog posts, my emails, my one minute writing exercises. …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
