Too much of a good time

Sometimes, you discover that there indeed exists such a thing, as having too much of a good time! It’s a bit like eating chocolates and ice cream every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I am talking about my holiday.


It was great, terrific, wonderful. But at the end of it, I did long for my own bed, my home and my time to myself.
It was nice to take a break—but equally terrific to be back.

The sea was lovely. Beckoning. Alluring. Mesmerising.

Could have stared at it for many more days without getting bored. But I wanted to come back.

  7. Good to have u back :) Yeah, home sweet home. Lovely pics, never thought Mumbai sea can also look so beautiful, as my experience of Mumbai sea has been dirty beaches and polluted sea.

    Sk:Start a blog.Start a blog.Start a blog!! bTW these pictures were clicked from my friend's apartment, not my brother's.She too stays right opposite the sea.

    Misti: Juhu is very clean now.They have shifted all the paani puri stalls etc.Every morning a huge cleaning process goes on. Worli still leaves much to be desired.Buti guess it depends on where one chooses to look.You can either look at the dirt--or simply see the sea :-)

  14. Welcome back!

    Now, if you could eat chocolate for every meal of the day while AT the beach...that would be something!

  15. Ahhhh... I could stare at the sea for many a day too, and never get bored. Mesmerizing describes the beauty of the sea quite well. :)

    But yeah, nothing is quite so comforting as being home.

  16. This looks so beautiful.
    When I was growing up the beach was very close to my house and I would walk there every day. You could hear the ocean waves from my bedroom window. I so miss the ocean.

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.
