God and His Ways

A different view when we all are very upset with the Almighty. Nicely put poem.

God and His Ways.


CHARLES BUKOWSKI: Air and light and time and space

Has it happened to you that you wanted to do something… like writing a blog, resuming an old hobby of yours, learning music, or creating something new, but have been postponing the task for the need of a more suitable time or place? If yes, please go through this post:

97. CHARLES BUKOWSKI: Air and light and time and space.

It emphasizes an important quote by CHARLES BUKOWSKI : “air and light and time and space have nothing to do with creativity”. If you are willing to create, design, innovate or invent, you’d do it anywhere, anytime and under any circumstances. If you are not creating anything because of a reason, it is just an excuse.

Hopefully I will try to avoid excuses now onwards for the things I really want to do 🙂

Dating in the Dark

Dating in the Dark.

In today’s world of convenience and luxury, we have made everything  complex. A small chat with an intended  partner-to-be (termed “a date”) has become a BIG thing with a hell lot of pressures. We have become used to pressures and in the process ignored the simple magical things in life.

Ruth spends some time with her grandparents in a village without electricity and rediscovers these simple things in a new light (well, literally).

And she suggests the same for a date too… just “Grab a lantern and meet during a power outage”.

A very well written post.

Steve McCurry, the photographer that took the amazing picture of the Afghan girl that appeared on the cover of National Geographic (I’m sure you know the girl who I’m referring to), posted this post to his own personal blog.

This special post, along with the amazing pics from different countries, reminds me of a walk I took on a chilly early morning near Chikmaglur, a small hillstation near Bangalore, India. It was some 6am. I woke up among the hills, took my digicam and went into the woods. Each flower, tree, shrub, worm just amazed myself as I got lost in time. The soothing silence in the hills and the extraordinary landscape talk to your soul, shaking it, rejuvenating it… and you experience, what you might have just heard previously, “inner peace”.
