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!

  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.

We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following 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…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
