Beauty is everything

Gone are the days of old cameras when they had limited film rolls. With the advent of digital cameras and even camera phones photography is not only easy but fun.

For an amateur photographer like me, it means to be able to click without any after or before thoughts attached to the moment.

I had my own myths related to photography…like you need to travel (possibly to the best of the locations), you need to capture beautiful things or should I say perfect things only. But I have broken my own myth shell.

Now I’ve understood that you can click amazing photos without traveling as well. Although, if you travel that’s great and if you don’t then don’t let your photography skills catch rust. Just take out your gadget and start clicking – remember it’s a digital camera, what can go wrong with that. Nature itself gives us a variety of things and sometimes it’s not perfect.

I not only look for inspiration in the most beautiful and perfect things but also mundane and imperfect ones. Now, I just like to capture anything as I see beauty in everything… beauty is everything.

I was getting an HTTP error while uploading some photos. Can anyone help me with this? 🙂

Our bumper sale will begin on Friday 13th November, 2015.

All our items are authenticated by “The Doctor”.

Last year the items that sold like hot coffee were – transparent pearls, jade money tree, rabbit’s foot and tiger’s tooth. They proved instant remedy for problems related to love, money, relationships and fear of aging.

We also arrange for a soul’s meet up with deceased (of any kind or loved ones).

Our existence is purposeful and we’d like to transform your life. So, don’t wait on the other side of the bathroom mirror. Gear up and shout a “YES” (but only after midnight as before that we are unavailable) and consider us with you. Our felt presence will always guide you from then.

Rainbow colours

As a kid I loved rains. It meant making paper boats, dancing in the rain, making a splash in the puddle of water (of course, it’s best when not done under parental guidance), and listening to the pitter – patter of the rain drops. Rain also meant rainbow.

Rainbows always conjured magical powers of some kind to me as a child. Back then I had no idea about “the pot of gold”.

Now I associate these seven colours with the 7 chakras in our body. Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel.  These centers were named as such because of the circular shape to the spinning energy centers which exist in our subtle etheric body, the non-material energetic counterpart to our physical body. There are seven main chakras in our body. The colours are the same – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each chakra is associated with a certain part of the body and a certain organ which it provides with the energy it needs to function.

“Harold, I love this place… specially the woodwork.”

“Let’s finalize the place, then.”

“Yes! But there is only one problem – dirt and dust. You know I don’t like that.”

“My, love don’t you worry about cleaning.”

Both Harold and his wife could see a car coming their way.

“See, I told you no worries. Humans are here. If they’ll stay, they’ll clean.” said Harold in a soft tone.

They both started laughing as the new tenants walked right through them.

Globe Gobble

Barbara Beacham is the kind host of Monday’s Finish the Story. Every week a photo and the first sentence of the story is shared and the challenge is to finish the story in 100 – 150 words. Thanks Barbara for this week’s photo and the challenge. For this week thanks to Eric Wickland of Momusnews for giving us the first line to go with the photo.

Finish the story begins with:  At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it. 2015-06-15-bw-beacham

A walk by the beach was a daily ritual for me. Today was no different…sea gulls, lonely shore, ferocious waves and cool sea breeze. Casting an impression on the soft wet sand, I walked.

Something shone in the sand like a piece of sun fallen from the sky. I went near it.

“Ah! What a beautiful marble.” I said, and picked it up.

I found a perfect place for it at home – in a bowl full of sea shells.

Touch…it wanted to be touched…more than once. I had picked it up twice and touched it more than three times marveling at its hollow beauty.

Spell…an unknown spell was broken and I could see liquid gold gushing through its cracks.

Fire…it breathed life and turned into a ball of fire.

It didn’t burn me, but I stared at it. Hollow turned into pure beauty. In a moment everything changed.

Shift…our gaze had interchanged. Now it was observing me from outside.

Trapped… I wondered if I’ll be visible to Billy when he comes home.

Staying off seasoned

Like people things also have a life.

I love when things are in plain sight – red strawberries, juicy oranges, cool tourists, snow peaked mountain tops – but then, they become unfocused during off season. This shift from peak to off and focused to unfocused makes you wonder what are you going to miss. How soon will they be back? Will there be more or less of them this season? Will they be different than the last time or any better?

Off season reminded me of Christmas decorations. Very soon, I could hear a jingle of a bell, feel the warmth of the lights from Christmas decoration, and the joy in my heart from the festive gathering in the house.

For now – they remain stacked, settled and silent somewhere – but they will come back to life as soon as their season approaches them.

3 days, 3 quote

First of all I would like to thank Millie Thom for passing the “3 days, 3 quote challenge” to me.

It is a new challenge in circulation and I’m glad to have been asked to participate. I love quotes. As a kid I had a diary in which I had written quotes. The diary would be circulated in the class and everyone would copy from it.

Quotes are the best way to motivate you during those sad and depressed moments of your life. Without much saying, it works like a best friend, guiding you through your trouble and also directing you to your desired path. I lost that dairy; I was careless in keeping it.

As I have always loved quotes, I again started collecting them when I started writing. This time I started writing my own quotes (you can read that in the thought matters section).

Day 1 Quote

Quote 1

Quotes are wonderful to read and fun to share. And so, I am opening the nomination to all my reader friends.

If you’d like to participate in this challenge then put up 1 quote each for three consecutive days. Please don’t forget to link your post back to mine. I’d love to hear your quotes. 🙂
