Z for Zen

This has been the most amazing challenge yet.
I want to end this with something that I truly believe in 
Zen, which  emphasizes the value of meditation and intuition


That is me. In my Zen mode. Early in the morning with a bed head

Y for Yesterday Evening

I took this picture yesterday. It was a lovely evening. I think I can spend every evening sitting here.
The lights, the calm waters and the cool wind calms me so beautifully.

X for X-Shaped Lights

Firstly, I didn't have anything for X. I was sad that I won't be able to complete my A to Z Challenge. 
While I was brooding sitting on Kowloon Bay in Hong Kong, the lights in the buildings came up and I got my idea for X.
This building right opposite to where I am sitting is very fascinating and so beautiful. 


The picture is taken from where I am sitting right now at the Kowloon bay.

W is Wine
We got this really fine vintage wine from Italy.
I wasn't sure which cheese to pair it with. 
I just brought in some random cheese cubes for it. It tasted well

A relaxed evening at home
Wine, cheese, and movies lifts up the spirits to go through the week

FF: The Schmitt House

PC: Liz Young
Mary and Sam’s only dream was to buy their own little house. For years, they never found the perfect place that fit their meager budget.

Then while driving by, they saw the ‘For Sale’ board on this Schmitt House. It was priced perfectly in their budget. The mansion was bordering the beautiful lake and had a beautiful garden.

It sounded too good to be true to Mary and Sam.
They shifted in the house in less than 10 days.

One their first night, at 3.15 am, their dog was barking and then went silent.

In the morning, they found the dog dead and a  tombstone mysteriously appeared out of nowhere.

Letter Writing Experience

When I was a kid, I used to write letters, put them in an envelop, stamp it and put it in the post box and wait eagerly for a reply. Every time the postman came by, I used to run to the door to see if had any letter for me.
Then, I even had a pen pal, whom I have lost contact's with. 

In this digital age, letters are gone, like vanished. With the click of a button you send a message. The eagerness, the anxiety, the secrecy, that butterfly feeling, that personal connect of a letter is lost. 

I think, once in a while, we should write letters to our loved ones. Once in a while, give perfumed love letters, I am sure the other person will still have the same reaction and might cherish it forever.

Letters are special. 

When I wrote letters in this challenge, I went through many emotions, I was happy, I blushed, i was angry, I was relived, I got teary. All in all....I loved this challenge.

Thank you for participating with us.

I have this thing for tattoos. My parents were against it. I wanted to get a tattoo with their permission.
I think I might have begged and bugged them for almost a year until they gave up and said yes.
Here are the picture of my two tattoos

Week 12: Letter to myself

This is the twelfth ans the last week of the "Letter Writing Challenge". The letter for this week is to yourself.

The next week, we will write about the experience of writing letters to so many people. How did we feel about it.

Here is my letter for this week

Dear D,

You are doing good. You have grown up well from a stupid teen to a semi-mature woman. You are nice to people, people love to have you around. Well, you are in a good space for now.

I think you have to change a few things about yourself, you are way too emotional, you shed tears too easily. If you have to go up that ladder, brace yourself and turn that tear tap shut.
You are stubborn and ill-informed many times. When you open that mouth, be sure to gather all the facts and then present yourself, that I am sure will give you more credibility.

Try to make people around you smile, as much as possible, that is the feature that people already love about you.

All in all, you are good. 

XOXO
From D

L for Lampshade

I had this old lampshade that was torn and I was on the verge of dumping it away, when I got this idea of making a new lampshade with the structure of the old one.
All I needed was some raw threads, some paper flowers and glue
The pictures on the sides are when the lampshade work was in progress
Now my house has a subtle patterned glow.
A simple DIY

FF: Never again

PC: Dale Rogerson
Bick came in “Siddi, Look, I know you just broke up but damn you, that was my finest booze”

“Did you order pizza last night?”

“Why didn’t you share it with me?”

“Did Roger come in?”

“Why is your underwear on the lampshade?”

Siddi looked up from under the duvet and saw Bick holding a piece of pizza in his hand

“Are you done with your questions? Buzz off now”

And put her head back in the duvet.Then she came out again

“That pizza is 3 days old and a cockroach ran over it”

And put her head back in the duvet.

Bick never ate pizza every again

WPS: Zack still lives here

 Dubrovnik, Croatia
Zack had lived a hard life from the time he was born. A drunk abusive father, a subdued mother who couldn’t protect him or herself. Every day, he has heard a lot of screaming, beating, crying and many cuss words in his house.

Zack used to cry himself to sleep for so many nights, until his discovered this place. This became Zack’s happy place. He used to sit on this skirting for hours gazing at the sea and its colors, the houses nearby, the ships and at night the stars.

One night, Zack had enough of his father’s torture; he came here, smiled at the sky and leapt from his happy place with a smile on his face.

Now, every night, many people have claimed to have seen Zack sitting here alone smiling.

Week 11: Grandparents

This is the eleventh week of the "Letter writing Challenge" and the topic for this week is to write to someone who left us and went away to God ans is still special to us.

Here is my letter for the week to my grandparents

Dear Sethu pati and Moorthy thatha,

I miss you. I miss you a lot. I was not there when you guys were here. I did hurt you at times. I had so much to say. I wanted to say sorry. I wanted to say I love you. I wanted to say Thank you. But, it just stayed with me.
You were there one day, and suddenly you were gone. I was a loser then, you wanted to see my flourish, you were worried about the kind of life I led. 
I wish you could see my now, I am sure you would have been very proud to see your child really standing up to what you wanted for me.

The day you both were being missed the most, was my wedding day. 
Dear pati, even now when I think about how happy you would have been to see me as a bride bring tears to me. Even now when my fingers randomly type the keyboard, my eyes go blur. I can see your smiling face. I can hear your voice. 
I remember all the time we spent with you as kids. Those were the best days of my life, memories etched forever.

That picked curd rice, the stories, the outings, all of them are very very special. 

I love you. I really do, and I wish you could read this letter. You meant the world to me.

Thank you
