Nurturing Thursday: Learning

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo
My biology general knowledge is very limited. WordPress or to be precise my fellow bloggers have helped me learning about many new things. Few days ago I shared a photo in macro photography.  I had no information about this little beauty.  Mick Canning of My writings shared the name of the insect. It was “Burnett Moth”, til then I have never heard about it. Hurray I learned something.

This is a five-spot burnet moth.  Here are some images of moths.

एहसास

घास पर पत्ते कुछ यूं गिरे,

मानो सहलाने उतरे हों।

अपना वज़न अपनी अना,

ऊपर शाख़ पर ही छोड़ आये।

Happy little moments!

Many Indians celebrated Diwali this last week. For me it was quite opposite as I was on roller coaster ride at work. There was no time to think about family or cultural matters and yes I am thankful for a supportive family. Now it feels like the week passed super quickly.

It’s our tradition to decorate house for Diwali and make rangoli (beautiful patterns with coloured sand or rice flour). On the day of Diwali, nature greeted me in a very special way and unknowingly I captured those moments. I am sharing rangoli created by nature to say “happy Diwali” to me naah to US!

The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy — not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what is called following your bliss ~ Joseph Campbell

I am happy to share these moments with you. Find such moments and stay happy.

Cheers!

Two Trees
A portion of your soul has been
entwined with mine
A gentle kind of togetherness, while
separately we stand.
As two trees deeply rooted in
separate plots of ground,
While their topmost branches
come together,
Forming a miracle of lace
against the heavens.
~Janet Miles, Images of Women in Transition

Weekend 67

I was away from blog for couple of days due to so much happening around me, all related to my work.  Yesterday I was in boat for almost 4:30 hours but didn’t take a single photo. I was so tired that I slept during the first half. Later it was all dark.

This photo is taken today while returing from shopping.

Have a relaxing weekend dear friends!

Indian bloggers who celebrate Diwali must be busy in planning! Enjoy festive mood!
