New found love........

Apart from art and blogging, I love to do a lot of other things. Sometimes I wish that if a day had say thirty hours or there was an extra day in a week which was an off especially between Sunday and Monday, it would be great. 

So there are two things I just absolutely love doing apart from stuff like reading books and watching shows. (Currently I am hooked onto Vampire Diaries)
 I watch countless short movies whenever I get time, animated and regular. I get so mesmerised by how people showcase a lovely story in a span of ten minutes. Everyday I am trying to take some time out to watch at least two to three short movies. 

Check out this absolutely delightful animated short called "Sweet Cocoon" about two insects that decide to help a struggling caterpillar in her metamorphosis! Click on  - Sweet Cocoon
It's so sweet, trust me. These six minutes will make you laugh. I will keep sharing the movies I watch in my posts so you guys can watch them too, if you like short films that is.

I also read many many many personal blog articles of people out there wanting to know how their lives are going. I especially love reading about dogs, motherhood, general life, balancing work, marriage etc. 

So that's all about loving new things. Lately I have been so moody and bored. Wondering why my brain is not producing any serotonin. All I have in my system currently is cortisol. 
I just stress and overthink. As usual. We all do I guess. I have to plan my next workshop and work on my commission but just not finding the motivation to start. All I want to do is go out, watch movies, chill. Guess I need a break as always which is odd since I just had one in February. And since K and I are restless souls we are off again in April.

On a sad note today is the one year death anniversary of my Toulouse. I have accepted it finally and kind off little okay now. I know he is in a much better place. He is free from the life we live, free from all the pain.
It still feels very recent. Cant believe a year has passed. I guess I will keep loving him and missing him forever and a day. 

Peace.

  1. Watched the lil animation movie...it was really nice. Although the ending is tragic, it kinda sums up life...life will end some day, but the journey however small can be beautiful.

    The same goes for your pet (was it a dog? I had one too..it died in 2010). While it was around, it must have added so much joy to your life.

    Come to think about it, dealing with death is hardest on those who have helped nurture the life that has passed on.

    Loved reading.

    Update mine. Do drop by.

    Cheers,

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
