You are in love when....

Late at night
When your thoughts drift
To that one person
Who brings a smile on your face
Each time you think of them,
And when you know in your heart
That you will do anything
Anything really
To have them in your life
Then you know
That it isn't what feels like love
It is love
The real deal
And if you smiled when you read this
Then you know
You're in love
There is no escape.

Now stop grinning before anyone notices
And thinks you are mad.
Love often is
Madness

  5. I couldn't stop grinning... Being in love with one anther after so many years is the greatest blessing we've received from God, for which I cannot thank him enough.

  6. A nice write-up Ma'am! Being in love is that state where for me my thoughts literally take the road of creativeness. Everything in the world seems beautiful and my elated self is simply portrayed in writings or music. Love is that strong feeling which one cannot escape without expressing it to the world and by saying, "I am in Love!"
    Looking forward to read verses on such themes Ma'am! World lives on 'love' & I wish you to have a lovely time ahead! :)

  12. love is really a total madness ma'am you never know how important that person is for you unless you lose that person
    I've been missing her since 15 months. I wish I hadn't let her go.
    Last month I heard from a friend that she got engaged.
    Since then I've been missing her like hell. I wish I could go back in past and never let her go off me and tell her how much I love her....

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…

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…

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…
