Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow…. a sign or simply nothing ….

broken lamp


Foreshadow : A warning … or an indication … a sign ….

It all depends on how we perceive things , we see a broken lamp , & what thought crosses our mind. Its a sign , to tread carefully ahead , of whatever new thing we are planning to do … or to look back and see what we are losing …

But there is a catch , you cannot look at everything and start taking those as some signs , sometimes they are just mere things happening , while sometimes they mean more than that …

the trick lies in drawing the line so that we don’t start hallucinating , or over thinking


Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background : Reflection




The purpose for this click , was to get our reflection …. but everything else in the background looked more sharpened than us & so my friend always thought of this photo as mere waste , & asked me to delete it , but I found the emerging scenery in the background very refreshing … & today I found the perfect place for it ….


Bob Marley ‘s words

Most of the times I have word on one or the other things , & I wind it it up with popular quotes , But this post is in not about my words or sayings , I would like to quote , from Bob Marley. Its like whatever I wanted to say he expressed it in his beautiful words , like he read my mind .

Bob Marley


 “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

Well this time s theme took me by surprise , & I thought & thought about it , like what surprised me , & there were many big moments flashed by ….. but than this picture crawled way up to my brain & I thought Life is full of Big surprises , but there is always fun in the little packages that come by & doesn’t matter much , & just surprise you in the most amusing way …

So here it is the sweet little Heart shaped potato …

It makes me think that Love is in the air or in grocery bag !!!

Sometimes it doesn’t make sense , but that ‘s okay ~

doesn't make sense

You know how sometimes nothing make sense , all this absurd questions poking you , no matter how hard you struggle to find the answers , its like waving your hand in deep water , you try to hold on to anything , but no gain ….

Your brain doesn’t accept things , it keeps on asking you …
You don’t get how someone can erase you from all their memories
How someone can just delete your existence
How someone can just walk past you like stranger
It doesn’t make sense to you how they pretend that everything is same like before
How someone can just lie to your face
Unexpectedly they lose all the feelings for you
How someone can change your mood instantly

& there you lie awake all night staring above , trying to figure out things on your own , finding reasons , convincing your heart to let it go , but does it listens to you . The validation of thoughts that occurs in your head ….You want to go to sleep , but still be able to feel things, like a waking sleep. You want to be relieved of responsibilities but still be aware that You’ve been relieved of them ….

You can worry all you like about how an event will turn out, what the weather will be like, whether your business is good enough; whether YOU are good enough.


It is what it is

Some might argue that you can change things; put in more effort, just a little  more ,But looking at life in general; accepting your circumstances, your way of life and your achievements… Accept them for what they are…

Answers are the scarce commodity , you won’t get them instantly , maybe if you try to connect dots gradually it would come to you , give it time , time has power to feed you almost all the answers , thats why scientists say , if they just get a  little bit more time , they would find the solution , same is with answers , yeah but ofcourse , sometimes its too late , but than again if you don’t have control over it , just leave that to time ….

It’s not giving up. It’s not dismissing experience. It’s not assuming you shouldn’t ask .The way I see it? You can only move on when you stop analyzing your life and comparing it to others’. Your life is what it is. No matter how you got to where you are now, it’s happened. It was what it was.

A conflicted heart feeds on doubt and confusion. It will make you question your path, your tactics, your motives. When you stare ahead and darkness is all you see only reason and determination can pull you back from the abyss.


Back in the Game

Sometimes you get so tired , exhausted , that you leave everything behind & go on a vacation …
the first few days are AWESOME , you feel relived ….
but than you also know the fact you can’t live a VACATION forever , you need to get back …
& you realize that when something HITS you …
A flash , or a pop up , or a punch …

And than You are back in the Game , that’s what you are made for  , that’s what you are good at , sometimes there will be  rough patch , you might not feel you are yourself , you might get doubts , but that’s the tough times that you have to deal with, those are the times when you realize your strengths , that’s the time you become more strong …

You know you might feel you can’t do this anymore ,that you are out of practice , give yourself sometime to adjust , its basic human nature to feel out of the game when you don’t get to practice for a couple of days , but believe me , you never forget how to play once you have already mastered it.

You need to catch up with the updates , what you have missed when you were gone , you need to learn the new things , you have to keep your options open , you are good at the basics , now all you have to do adjust is to the updated version.

Maybe you have to form new strategies , but remember the methods you learned in your old school will be the one guiding you in crisis time . Stick up with the basics & you will do good .

Positivity will help survive


It would seem that optimism and positivity are in such short supply these days.  People become angry or discouraged so quickly, frustrated by trivialities and stressed by perceived slights.

I’ve been there.  It’s a dark path, where the only way to assert control is (seemingly) to cut down and destroy.  But there’s truly something to be said for creation, rebuilding, renewal.  That is the only way out of that spiral.

Its like a rabbit hole , once you fall it seems endless , & the ground would hit hard , to find a way back is the tricky part & the key is positivity , that is very much underrated by people .

If you let the small things bring down your world upside down , how are you gonna survive the big challenges if life .

I feel for these people.  It’s not a healthy place to be, but I wish them the best.  Life should never be a series of struggles.  Take joy in the little things and let the rest be.

Don’t let the cloud of negative energy blind you. Hold on to the string of FAITH & HOPE .

” When you have control over your thoughts, you have control over your life. “

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette



A click at the riverfront in the city

Sometimes a rare sight like this in the early peaceful morning , makes you realize you can have a moment of pause in your life before rushing into the hustle of fast pace schedule & routines ,

I so love this weekly photo challenge , I always discover a new perspective ….


The Fading Light of childhood ……



When I was sixteen I dreamt a photograph of balloons in the sky, inflatables of color illuminating the sky with its sheer boldness to be seen. floating up and filling these lungs with helium, breathe in , why don’t you float a little too my dear.

When I was little my favorite bracelet was a balloon tied around my wrist. when the greatest devastation was awakening the next morning to find it at the foot of my bed, lifeless, but still bright. like a tease that maybe it could still make it and fly and I would stand on top of the bed and drop it, watching the descent back down. and it would bounce softly a few times, a delicate loss it was.

Sometimes it’s nice to pull the covers over yourself and hide from the world for a while, sometimes you don’t want to be seen. You don’t want to be bold. The thoughts inside begin to explode like balloons that go off in the sky but we never see that part of the story.

When I was little I would wave them goodbye, say hello to the moon for me.

It is difficult to turn around once you turn on yourself. Sometimes we try and try knowing that it is not our hardest and we do not know why we hold back from the world. maybe in the end there looms catastrophe so we leave a little behind. you can get really close to the edge and still fall over. we have seen our train wreck in the eyes of others. it is not a look that is easily forgotten.
