A Saturday journey (blog marathon post 11)

 When I left Mumbai today it was raining. We had to wait for at least 20 minutes to get clearance to take off. I couldn't see anything outside from my airplane window, as there were rains lashing. Flight was slightly delayed.

Then I landed in Bangalore. My very cute driver picked me up ;) :)
Here is a picture:

While I felt a little sad to leave Mumbai (it used to be home, many years ago), I was happy to be back in Bangalore. This was my view.




I have lived in so many cities now, and I have good friends in all of them. 

Friendship is indeed one of life's greatest blessings. Wrong friends can plummet you down into places where you never thought you would go. The right ones can do that too! But they don't plummet you, they elevate you. Choose your friends wisely.  You can change the course of your life, associating with genuine  folks who understand your dreams.

I am exhausted after a long journey now. Tomorrow!
Till then, keep that smile. You look better when you smile.

    1. Hi Bimal--I guess it takes a few seconds to load. It is embedded from instagram. Just refresh over a fast connection and you should be able to see it. If not it's on my instagram feed (preeti.shenoy is my insta id)

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…

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.
