Looking back at 2020!

Spring is the season of hope

It’s funny how, in this journey of life, even though we may begin at different times and places, our paths cross with others so that we may share our love, compassion, observations, and hope. This is a design of God that I appreciate and cherish.~ Steve Maraboli

A walk on one foggy morning
Beautiful landscape and dramatic clouds

Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.
~ Walt Whitman (Leaves of Grass)

Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.

  1. Rupali, these images are amazing in the way you have captured them, the lessons that speak from the various quotes and the feeling of God’s eternal grace and strength in each frame. Thank you. Love. Hugs!

  2. Love your take on the combined challenges – and not sure if you meant to do this – but the flowers seemed to alternate a bit – and these photos show much beauty you seemed to surrounded by last year –
    oh and Happy New Year Rupali

      1. Hi – nothing wrong at all – it was actually interesting and I should have said “alternating color” – at least to me this is what I felt –
        Photos seemed to alternate
        Photos 2, 5&6, then 9 and 11 (even tho 9 is a leaf) it was dispersed well if that makes sense

      1. Yes of course and our best bhaji gali, Rupali I stay outside bhaji gali just opposite station and can see B Merwan building from my house. Adarsh apparently has closed permanently because of lockdown and people have not come back from their villages to work again. You were staying there or what

      2. Our at least four generations (which I am sure of) have relished those mawa cakes.Oh yes how could I forget the bhaji galli. Actually my mother in law was born and brought up in chikhalwadi in grant road, and my husband has spent his summer vacations with his granny and maternal uncle in grant road 🙂 After my marriage I was also a regular visitor.

        I have enjoyed numerous stories about the places and the people 🙂


      3. Oh that is so nice to hear. Chikalwadi is just behind my house. And yes our bhaji gali the best vegetable market one can ever have. This is our Grant road West. B. Merwan cakes were awesome and we called them on everyone’s birthday too so famous but down the line they lost their charm and today the restaurant remains closed. Sad. Take care and stay safe dear.💖💖💖😊😊😊
