Take care – a note to self & unto others.

Take care; be gentle with self.
You are only a human prone to make mistakes.
Be kind to self.
Learn – move on – repeat; for this alone is constant.
Be still, listen to the voice of your heart. What does it say?! 
A second chance is all you need. Third, fourth if required …
Why be limited with less chances when you have many to live by …

Spot the light within ..

Spot-light

The shy, the reserved & the least expected ones will someday come to the light.
Comfort zone you say; how long I ask.
What if some day you wake up, the zone you protected is lost?
What if someday you wake up & find the walls you built is broken unbeknownst to you? 
How long will you hold onto something which is just your imagination?
How about stepping one foot at the time? How about a hello to the world?
Who knows, you could be a surprise to self if only you give a chance & believe in opportunities.

So what if you failed?! Who never did?! – Ever heard failure being stepping stones to success? Do you think or believe that’s a mere fantasy & fiction? – Good if you did believe that way because when you are conditioned to believe so, I’m sure you will believe in chances & opportunities as well. It’s all in the mind I keep telling you & yet again I will remind you of such.

Be mindful of this cherie – It is that one step at a time, always! 

Yours,
Conscience..

The lost voice 

Dear Chester Bennington, 

With what shall I say about you,

I’ve known none much of your music but yes, one thing I could always associate you with is your throat tearing vocal to the highest of the highest and to infinity and beyond.

I remember the days I made fun of your high screeching vocal ability because that is the only cue for me to recognize “Ah, that screeching singer guy has come finally” and I ignore but I ended up watching your entire music video. 
I have few songs of yours in my playlist. I have been playing those on loop for no reason for long as I remember. Which means I have to admit I grew listening to LP though I did not realize that till now.
Never thought the day would come I would say this but yes, Linkin Park will never be the same without your screaming, screeching high pitched voice. 
So, my dear Chester Bennington,
To me you will always be remembered as the guy with that high screech voice who was the catalyst for the band. Yes, I will miss your voice for sure.

Rest, is peaceful. 

Somewhere along the way I lost my path,

I belong somewhere; for sure I know

I miss those empty nights gazing at the moon with emptiness inside

I survive each day; but the voice inside me says, “but darling, you battle each day. You need to rest” – Yes, I miss those empty nights gazing at the moon with emptiness inside

To feel and do none itself is a blessing in disguise.

Weekly Photo Challenge *Graceful*

graceful-leaf-bike1

This spot, caught my attention while I was in search of a Graceful image to post.

“A plant has a power to creep over with its vine yet, so gracefully done”.

Albeit this bike is old & remains untouched for years, the vine grew untamed & wild which had room to creep over the bike and remains still.

A little deep introspect of this image made me realize we are this still bike. And, often or sometimes we allow our vine of thoughts to creep over & enthrall our minds making us go numb

Simple as it may seem to cut off the creeper plant off the bike but, how simple would it be to remove the creeping thoughts off the mind? (A rhetorical question!)

Nostalgia! Those were the days ..

These are the images of my amateur photo work when I began to photograph 2 years back as a hobby. Little did I know, photography & the photo edits would become my full time work. As days progressed, I began participating in photo challenges hosted by various websites, Instagram & posted few on Facebook. This has taken me to a new level of confidence of my new skill in photography.

I began to notice things,

things that are of minute in its detail;

things that are often interpreted as mundane, boring & no beauty at all;

things that are ignored & dismissed as no novelty by a mere human eye;

–  I photographed all those mentioned above

 

Of recent, I have joined a corporate & my commitment to photograph & blogging has reduced over time. One night, I happened to go through my old picture works & its photo edits, realising how much I missed my blog & photography – I miss what I once enjoyed doing the most. These old pictures brought me back memories of sanity. The times I had no job, these were the “things” (as mentioned in the above points) that which had me sane & occupied.

Glad I came across WP’s Nostalgia Photo Challenge which gave me an opportunity to go through my archived photo work & enabling me to express my gratitude 🙂

weekly photo challenge – boundaries (4)

Hi again.. I’m usually not a person of many words but I have been feeling this urge to write something posting this picture.. Not sure what I must write though but there was a time I enjoyed writing and it felt so good and liberated. Overtime i stopped writing not because I was too busy or life’s demand took a toll on me but, I ran out of ideas and stuff and I became too idle. I even dreamt of becoming a writer.. But to write what is the question I had no answer.

Few of my good friends tried to put me back on track to write but, I simply lost interest & gave up writing .. I have been going through The Daily Posts different categories & various contests they conduct for each days & weeks keeping the participants’ skills alive .. So I decided why not let me try writing again. If it was my writing skills that made me create a WordPress blog account in the first place which later made me do amateur photography, maybe I could try and do both by posting a picture and write few lines about it. No pressure on myself to write as a must but just a thought to try something new to add life to my blogging skills. That’s all.

boundaries

For this picture I posted now “In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.” I have no idea why this urge to post this picture and write same time but seemed appropriate to me for weekly photo challenge – boundaries.. I have already posted 3 photos for the week’s challenge. This will be my fourth and final photo for the challenge. I’ve been participating with excitement since I learnt of this challenge from October 2 onwards. Guess I will try to keep up with the daily posts and participate much as I can..
