Simple moments matter–Exploring life in black and white

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” ~ Ansel Adams

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let the images speak what I saw there. What I felt there. In those moments where time came to a standstill. A place where land ended and magically dissolved into the water. A land mystical. Untouched. Wind heavy with memories. It asked me to take it with me in its purest form. Basic. Simple. Black and white. Simple moments matter, always!

You are like a sea horse. Like a seahorse, you tend to be quite unique, and unusual, seeming fragile to a lot of people. Unaware of how fascinating you tend to be, you are often shy and stay hidden away. You are often a good friend, loyal & caring though you can be a little distant at times.

Simple Moments Matter (part 5)- My wandering soul

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” ~ Cesare Pavese

10 Life Lessons My Husband Taught Me

IMG_2214_thumb.jpg

~~ Life is a huge playground. So have fun on the slides, roller coasters and kiddie rides. You are born to have fun and not to meet crazy social expectations.

~~ Love with all your heart ,and never leave the back door open to exit, if things get tough.

~~ Give second chance to people who you think deserve it. Never look back at people who lost out on that opportunity.

~~Never say things that you don’t mean, especially during a fight. Ummm..still working on this one 🙂

~~ Treat your self with the same kindness as you treat others.

Simple Moments Matter- Part 3- My Art

Sitting beside my bedroom window, I am admiring the glittering ocean, and the dash of sunlight peeking out of clouds in the beautiful sky.

I shared with you last week, that I have enrolled for an online art course on Coursera. This minor step has added a new perspective in my life. A new way of looking at things.

Today , I am admiring this magnificent nature’s painting not as a viewer, but as a creator.

I am Source-flickrhivemind.netnoticing nature’s brush strokes in clouds, changing values, shades of color and how different elements are interacting with each other on the picture plane. I am admiring a bird in the foreground, looking so endearing & creating a focal point against an orange whitish sky.

Just one small addition to my life, and what a reward! What an absolutely refreshing interpretation. My admiration for nature’s creator has grown so much after experiencing this moment.

Through such art pieces, someone up there wants to remind self-absorbed & control freak humans, who the real boss is.

This is his way of enacting on a large canvas, a very famous Bollywood dialogue in HIndi, “baap hamesha bete se bada hota hain”  or ” baap baap hota hain, beta beta”, which means father is the creator and is always older and wiser than his son.

————————-

Again, please keep adding new dimensions to your life. Life is precious and very short.

Happy learning!!

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today”.- Dale Carnegie
