A steaming mug of chai / tea, to be enjoyed right here right now.

…my steaming cuppa!
Tastes the best once off the kettle / saucepan. The lingering flavor lasts until after, reminding you of a pleasant morning you’d had. And you could not recreate the same flavor again with your microwave or stove. The slow rising steam dancing to the tune of time passing.
Life’s moments are best enjoyed in the moment. In the now. Never could you re-create the same moment ever again,


The ever transient clouds…

I could look at the sky forever.
The world gets a different depth,
And you are in motion
Set by the drifting clouds above
A center discovered within
that pulls to the ground.
A calming trance…

Hope you see what I see through this picture.

The sky rising deeper and deeper. Monochrome # 041

Happy Summer Solstice my dear visitors! This longest day of the year is transient before the days start getting shorter and shorter 🙂

Heritage: from a mother to her daughter

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Krishna under the tree with peacocks, playing his enchanting flute, flanked by two peacock lamps. Adorned with some fragrant white flowers from our garden, as an offering of love.

Usually, as a family tradition, a mother gifts her daughter standard few things at her wedding. This is a brass idol of Krishna given by my mother as I started my new life. She loves Krishna and his stories. I myself find great wisdom in the Bhagavad Gita, a unique scripture (could very well be called secular) with answers to possibly all questions that have and will plague the human mind.

Krishna’s message : let your life be a celebration.
I inherited this idol from my mother, and also the blessing to be able to make my life into a celebration.
