Two pictures that show patience. (Post 6 of blog marathon)

My soul is happy when I create stuff--be it a picture, a book(a novel) , a poem---anything really which makes my internal world a happier place.

If I don't create stuff, I  feel shriveled up from the inside. I can spend hours and hours by myself, sitting at my desk--listening to music and creating art. I don't much crave company .(unless it is of close friends who have known me for ages)

I am going to show you two things which I made, which i was quite pleased about..


I didn't know what I was making when I started out. I just kept going and this is what emerged. I quite like it :) It was a LOT of work and needed a tremendous amount of patience.




I liked the idea of the cat waiting patient;y, sitting so still, gazing out of the window. I like the idea of waiting for something. In today's 'instant-fix' times, I think sometimes, this stillness is good.

Today I am a happy soul :)
 Hope your day has been pleasant as well.


And till tomorrow, stay safe, peaceful and blessed.

  1. I could see great effort in these pictures. Especially the quilled art. amazing it is. And I could recall the line from karate kid on reading your lines on the 2nd art. 'being still and doing nothing, are two very different things".

  5. I really wonder how do you do that?? It needs a lot of patience and time to create such beautiful and soothing things... Although I am not so great in paintings but I do make cards and I can relate to the pain you suffer from. You are really blessed with superlative skills... Stay blessed!!! :)

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…
