Thinking..Thinking blogger award.

Bob-Kat had a nice surprise for me yesterday. She awarded me a “Thinking blogger award.” Yesterday being All fools day, I did not react immediately. The waspish cynic lurking inside me felt happy, but did not want to be fooled .So I waited until today. Then I realized I had been a fool anyway, as her post was dated 31st March!

Part of the honour of being nominated is also that I get to give it to five blogs that make me think. There are many blogs that I like, but ones which make me think---well, I had to really think! I went by contents of the blog,on what issues the blogger wrote about .Did it make me stop and think? Did it affect me in any way?

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


Here are my choices.

Love is stronger than pride by Devil mood : She posts about different things. At times, introspective, at times about issues that she feels strongly about, at times photos, but every time, it makes me think!

Forever England by Tim Young: It’s a poetry blog. I was delighted when I first discovered it. He writes instant poetry—some of them really touch me deeply—and almost all of them make me think.

TO&TFTBG by Paul: He posts a collection of quotes or things that inspire him or make him laugh. He writes about movies that affect him too. Each of his posts really make me think.

Hooky Beach by Somewhere Joe: Each of his posts are a masterpiece. His simplicity and his acute power of observation, and also what he writes about, really makes me think.

The fifth one, I really could not decide. There are so many posts that made me think. But not the whole blog. There is a blog (Damn,it’s a shitpot) which I discovered recently and one of the posts made me think . Pardon the language—I don’t find it offensive. But if you do, please refrain from reading.Tyler Durden's latest post made me think too.
One of Gawpo’s posts really moved me and made me think.A lot.

The participation rules of the award are simple:

1) If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
2) Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3) Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

  1. It was my pleasure :-) Your blog always makes me think, even if it's simply about how lovely your art work is and looking at the composition and taking something from it.

    I will have to check out the blogs you have made an award to sometime soon. They sound like a good read.

    Fancy thinking I would April Fool you! To tell you the truth I completely forgot what day it was!

  7. Devil Mood:You deserve it my friend.You write so well. What the original rules said was that you give it to five others.Since I have already got it,I guess it makes sense to bestow it on others who make you think.Thanks!! You made me happy too :-)

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
