via Daily Prompt: Enroll

How true !!! Where and how do we enroll to resolve all our life issues ?? Of late I have lost track of the surge of problems in my personal life. It includes my extended family in India. I wonder where do I get the necessary skills to resolve these issues …

With all the fancy technology available at our fingertips these days we should be sailing smooth in the sea of life. Yet we are all completely lost especially when it comes to dealing with our mind vs heart . There is no magic robot/tech that can give us ready made answers for dealing with matters of mind and heart. We have to wade through the tough times and make decisions as we go as there is no set of rules that all of us can follow … To each his own.

There are definitely no courses one can take. Enroll and connect with your own inner guidance.Now imagine yourself finding whatever it is that brought you to this inquiry. What does it feel like? Are you ready for this level of transformation in your life? Tune into your deepest heart’s desire… trust that you hold all the answers you need within.

As always, let your heart guide you !!


Rare Super Blue Blood Moon

January 31 2018 – Sky gazers across the world were treated today  to a rare celestial event  dubbed as “super blue blood moon.” Rare because it is a combination of lunar eclipse, blood moon and super moon , visible in the western hemisphere for the first time in 152 years. There won’t be another so-called “super blue blood moon” until 2037.


What do I cherish about 2017 ??

via Daily Prompt: Cherish

What do I cherish the most in the year 2017 ????

It has been a stormy year and one I weathered pretty well. Even though the sailing was pretty tough I came in and out of it pretty strong. I learnt a LOT !!!

NO matter how hard life gets one has to keep smiling. Have learnt to cherish those small moments of pure bliss …

Between the chaos and the mess, between the yelling and crying, some instinct is telling me to hold on. So much of the day is about survival, about getting through unscathed. I multitask, I panic, and I inevitably fail at least once a day. Yet I have been holding on..

I spend days dreaming about her future and yet on other days I am content in knowing that things though moving slowly are moving in the right direction ???

She is everything I’ve ever wanted and not wanted. She is a bundle of extremities and I need to open this bundle with extreme caution not breaking any threads and bringing it back to its perfect form sooner or later. Life is fragile and one needs to handle it with care …



Acadian Sunset

Acadia National Park in Maine is an iconic destination for landscape photographers. Acadia is a great option for those of us in the east. Although Acadia is small by national park standards, it is among the top ten most-visited national parks in the U.S !!!

There are several things to love about Acadia. I for one loved the sunrise and sunset every single day of my visit this year in May .There is a great deal of diversity in terms of the landscape and photo opportunities. You can photograph the beautiful, rugged coastline of New England, mountains, lakes, forests,lighthouses,flora,fauna,, and more. It’s easy to see and visit much of Acadia by car.

We did a trip for four days and it was super fun. I am just posting pics of the sunrise and sunsets !! Enjoy.

Moved on…

It has been almost 3 months since I moved from Ridgewood to South Brunswick in NJ.

This is how our Ridgewood saga began.

Our move to Ridgewood happened in April of 2006 from Colorado. We were all excited that we were moving closer to the Big Apple. But all that became a nightmare once my older daughter started school in Ridgewood ,NJ. She was in grade 5 at that time and younger one was just 4 years old. My older daughter was  tiny/petite for her age and none of the kids were friendly with her. Day in and out it was a nightmare as she was bullied every single day for various reasons. Reported it in school but did not help. The principal said “your child needs to be more social blah blah.. ” . It was tough 2 years before we decided to move back to India in 2008.

She had a great time completing middle school in India. Unfortunately the move could not be permanent and we had to move back to the US and once again it was Ridgewood we had to come back to.  My younger one was in Grade 1 by then. Life was okay , though not so great. We were still deciding whether to buy a home in Ridgewood or Princeton. Favored Ridgewood over Princeton due to logistic reasons as both of us worked very close to Ridgewood. My older daughter completed school at RHS . She may not have had the best time but it was better than her initial elementary and middle school years here.

The next problem began with my younger daughter in middle school. Once she moved into High school it got worse.What is it about Ridgewood  that makes life tough for some kids ????? I have had the worst two years of my life in this town and do not wish to go into the details but finally  had to move out 😦

Currently my daughter is pursuing High School in School Brunswick. So far so good… I miss Ridgewood but moving has  helped her cope with all the distractions and drama that Ridgewood is all about..


Pink Invasion of the landscape around Ridgewood

With spring in full bloom, there’s no better time to enjoy Ridgewood. When it comes to photographing flowers, your unique viewpoint plays an important role to your final results.  You stand before trees and  fields in full bloom, and while it’s beautiful in your eyes, the ability to translate its majesty through the lens requires a few techniques!!

Spend a few moments taking in the scenery and contemplating which parts of nature speak loudest.
