God lies in the Details πŸ˜Š

‘God lies in the details’
I heard people say
Now I realise
What they meant 😁

The Undisputed Queen

Queen of the Earth
Nymph of the Forest
If it isn’t your spirit
That moves this sky
Then Heaven knows
What does!

Motu has taught me the joy of sitting around flowers, at his level.

Not the sophisticated opportunities of being around a vase elegantly filled with hand-picked beauties, but the ‘son-of-the-soil’ types, where one barges into a blossoming flowerbed head-on, dislodging and dispersing fragrance in all directions😁…. Smelling leaves too, because everyone smells the flowers, duh!

So, as he sits amongst flowers, smack in the middle of them, trying to pass of as a daisy, πŸ˜‚… I linger nearby, sitting on grass, inhaling appreciatively, the subtle delicacy of sun in winter and the blessing of a playful pet, one who teaches through example, what it means to enjoy the ‘simple pleasures of life’ πŸ€—

Memories are Made if These… πŸ˜

Before the start of 2019, I bought a simple daily diary, small and portable.

Everyday of 2019, I wrote little snippets to connect me with my Day… The time I woke up, what was the temperature, who was visiting, what I was reading,some quote I read… I also made a small column for a gratitude list and one small area for an affirmation… As I leaf through the days gone by, I fondly stop at a paragraph that mentions my brothers visit, we played Frisbee. Another page tells me about my travel to Doon, the drive to the mountains, the deep gratitude I felt meeting old friends of my mom’s and the food they cooked as a special treat for me😊… I remember feelings and aromas, it’s the most beautiful sensation to realise how every day was different, yet so special.

This year while browsing at a bookshop, I came across this stunning Paulo Coelho planner… It’s got quotes, breathtakingly beautiful illustrations and enough space for me to squeeze in the most memorable parts of my day… I look forward to another year of jotting small observations and heart-touching moments… I know I won’t be saying, “The year just flew by!” because I would know exactly where it wentπŸ€—!
