Dreams of 2019

InkedNew Year Quote_LI

Dears,

I do not know what 2018 brought into your life. May be joy, may be challenges or perhaps, both! But I’m sure, for all of us, it brought lessons that will stay with us for a lifetime. One lesson that has stayed with me is this conviction – you’ll never lose if you’re truly passionate about a dream. Outwardly, even if there was absolute failure, your dedication will live on and kind of form a chain reaction, leading to the ‘one’ who will eventually make your dream come true. The ‘one’ may be your child, family, a random person or event. But it will come true! The important thing is to stay true and passionate to your dream. So, here is wishing you big dreams and possibilities in 2019. May even the sky doesn’t limit you!

Love and peace,

Shivangi

The Observer

On some days, I see a little girl in the house opposite to mine, looking up at the Sky. Soft pink hands rest lightly on dark railing of the old deck, while a half dreamy smile sits on her lips.

Motionless she observes the sky, as if at one with its vastness. Her breaths are slow…deep… meditative.

Nothing disturbs her. Not cars…nor the people. Not even flapping of Siberian birds returning to the lake.

Around that time, The Sun comes knocking at homes and enters through cracks, holes and half drawn blinds. It waits in empty houses like an unwelcome guest as people rush out in the morning hour.

Nobody greets or smiles at Him. They are all on the run to the next moment. Except, of course, that little observer!

She tilts up her bonnie face a little more on seeing Him, her smile widens and brown eyes twinkle. Happily, the dear sweet Sun covers her in a soft, golden embrace.

Around them, the world moves on at a hectic pace, cars zoom, planes fly… but the ‘still’ little observer has eyes only for the sky!

She deeply calms me, that little girl, she is so much at one with the infinity. So still, so calm, so mindful, so precious… I smile too as I observe the observer, observing nothing and… everything!

Mystic Sunset

As I caught the Sun leaving for the day, I realized that every sunset is different. Sometimes it is mysterious, other times gorgeous, on some days arresting and at times, spiritual. Today, it was mystic with brilliant orange around it. These days, the lake is frozen. I am eagerly waiting for summer evenings to catch the Sun’s reflection on this lovely lake.

When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator – Mahatma Gandhi

Envisioning My Old Age

A face lined with varied experiences, wrinkled eyes speaking of noble wise tales, a figure bent with carrying forward traditions of the yore, heart full of pride in one’s culture and the hope that things will always be better tomorrow – this is my idea of the perfect old age.

How about yours, share if you have given a thought to it…
