Being u – A letter to my sister…


Being you

Being you

I love you for letting me be me in your presence.
For being able to express my frustration on some concern of mine without it effecting our deep ties.
I love you for being there in the times I celebrate life.
And the ones when I am mad at circumstances…
And as your sister I want you to be aware of the uniqueness of your being.
I want you to bless your presence, your birth and even every second of the lucky person I am to have you in my mornings, evenings, years and days…
I want a whole lot.
I want you to take care of yourself if not for yourself then for me for I cannot imagine my space without you.
I want your joys to be mine. Your laughter to be in synchronization with mine but if it’s not, I will try to erase the shadows of your soul.
I am willing to try alleviate your burden.
Share the tools I stumbled upon by divine providence.
But most of all I feel privileged and honoured to have been given the opportunity of treading the paths together, heart to heart, hand in hand…
This is why I picked up this morning my phone to let you know.
Thank you for being one of the best person I know on this planet.
Thank you for giving so much of you in the eight days I was visiting.
For sharing your time, listening…
For your big generous heart.
For encompassing, embracing all that cross your path.
For showing it.
For the light, the proof that goodness prevails.
For leading quietly without realizing it.
For being.

P.s
My apologies for my absence during a very busy winter until now.
As soon as things quieten down I’ll be back liking & commenting again
promise 🙂

Better late than never best wishes ;)


Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Being one with nature, this is the feelings we get when surrounded by natural beauty…
Best wishes to you all!

My apologies for the delayed wishes… Just couldn’t get down to posting it here, nevertheless still managed to squeeze it into my Instagram & Facebook account, somehow I find the tagging more time consuming here:)
Does anyone feel the same?

These photos were taken on the day before new year. It was so sunny it put me in the mood for a serious photo shoot session which surpassed my expectations.
Let me know what you think…

Destruction & creation… Failure versus success quote


Destruction & creation

Destruction & creation

Failure & success go hand in hand… One cannot exist without the other.
It is part of our life journey and selfgrowth.
This is my own quote and photo.

Where there is absence of noise, silence goes unappreciated.


16.5.2014 (2)-a-1-

Those words popped into my mind this morning when silence was as thick as knee deep snow & as deafening as nature before a tsunami.
No-thing interrupted its vacuousness. There was no possible way of measuring it. That is when I realised that whenever I wrote about the quietude peaceful spots provide us with, it involved a symphony with brief in-betweens.
The sea being among my favourites, roars many seasons a year. Intervals minimal in comparison with its rambunctious charm.
I remembered the poem & essay I had written a while back, on silence too.
All involved a lot of noise.
The poem was literally crackling with outdoor’s natural interruptions & “Fiat Silentium” was about distant noises magnifying the cocoon of bliss I had found myself in.
Silence on its own is dead whereas accompanied becomes an entity. Each & everything on this planet comes chaperoned, hence, the expression “it’s a package deal”. People,objects,circumstances,emotions… I haven’t yet seen anything shining without a contrast or a system of support sustaining its light.
Silence goes very far where noise is concerned… 😉

Have a great noisy week!

A labour of love


The love knot-1-a

Today I took the afternoon off.
Painting set aside I dedicated it to the updating of my sidebar.
My bloggers had that professional & polished look to theirs. I used to wonder how they managed it so beautifully.
As a firm believer of “there’s a right time for everything” I took the plunge & discovered a whole range of widget facilities that were relatively easy to work out. With luck I managed to insert in a few hours, the ones that were a priority to me.
Among them, inserting the links of my followers.
At the end of it I felt as if I had climbed Mount Everest & was ready to shout at the top of my lungs, Eureka!
Check it out, I am curious to know your opinion.
Do you think it adds a lot to the quality of a blog as I did?

The fantasy tree updated


The fantasy tree oct.2015-1-

If you remember, I posted the fantasy tree not too far back, mentioning the doubts I had toward this work. This is the first time I felt a project gnaw slowly its way, until I could no more but plunge into the risky waters of uncertainty, preferring that than living with the feeling of not being complete with it.
Working long hours I finally was one hundred percent satisfied with its result.
The thickness was produced by heavy painting and extra heavy gel medium I’ve discovered lately & really enjoy working with!
This is the continuation of an abstract collection called “the tree collection”

Our pet rabbit cuddles photo shoot


Tummy rub

Tummy rub

Our pet rabbit inspired me to a photo shoot.
A while back we introduced her to a new flavor. She sniffed & favored her blanket instead. The contrast in colours were too obvious to ignore a photographic opportunity.
Cuddles, tummy & head rubs are her favorite. She’s a handful (a lot of cleaning up & protecting wires around the house) but well worth it 🙂

Amazing Lives – Coma Miracle – patients in a coma are being woken with a sleeping drug


If this post could help or give the slightest hope to one person out there, it would have been worthwhile. I would consider myself the luckiest & privileged to have stumbled upon this video.
Here, patients locked in a vegetative state are miraculously being woken with a sleeping drug called, Stilnox a South African brand name for Zolpidem.

Published on 2 Jul 2014
In a small South African town, patients locked in a vegetative state are miraculously being woken with a sleeping drug. Dr Wally Nel, the local GP who stumbled upon this phenomenon, has now helped hundreds of brain damaged patients and may be the verge of an extraordinary medical breakthrough. The film contains a television first when Diana, a woman locked in a barely conscious state speaks for the first time in three years. It also features Louis, the first patient woken by the drug seven years ago. A new brain scan reveals some startling results which suggest that the sleeping pill may actually trigger regeneration of brain cells.
