This is a blog about my thoughts and observations culled from my journal … handwrittenonly ! I am an observer of life, people and situations, me muddling through my personal challenges and my musings about these make their way into the daily pages of my journal .
There is a connection between the pen and the page that is personal and those original thoughts, for me, have magic when set down on paper before they materialize on the computer screen. Thoughts flow faster and unstoppable through my pen onto paper.
Some of my writings go back to India, my country of origin . Some of them are comments on the day-to-day life in the USA . Books are my life. They feed my soul. I’m always reading 3 books at a time! Curling up on the sofa with a good book, a cup of chai (the Indian way with mint leaves, lemon grass, tea, milk and sugar (Stevia pour moi) and the sound of rain drenching the garden is my idea of bliss!
I love music and movies of different genres from different cultures, meditation, and signing my name on lists for good causes, especially in the areas of women, children, animals and the environment in any part of the world. I paint mask images on wood when the inspiration surfaces and have produced two large wall hangings. I observe color combinations in nature and art and am constantly clicking images. Did I mention I am mesmerized by stunning sunsets and pretty moonlit nights? I also engage in games like crossword puzzles, Ken Ken, Sudoku and Lumosity that sharpen my mind and stretch those dendrites to make the leaps to discover logic to solve the problems.
So there you have me. A mixed bag for sure!
