Meandering through some streets of Deira market – Echoes Of My Neighbourhood #7

On Thursday’s, I share a picture about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Every Thursday, share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time. It could be houses, backgrounds of your neighbourhood, activities and so forth and you can tag it Echos of my Neighbourhood, add my link to your post so that I will get the ping from your post.

Every other Thursday, I will publish a post with the links of all those who participated the previous week.

This is just a fun way of getting to see more of the World around us through your eyes, since we cannot all be at those places, we can at least see them through you.

I love to explore my neighbourhood with glee.

Most times, while doing so, I feel like a kid unwrapping a present, keeping my eyes peeled.

It always bolsters my spirit, just watching people go about their daily lives with smiles or frowns, talking or not talking.

Just watching.

Last week’s Echoes brought in quite some fresh views:

Aloha from sunny Maui, I refuse to be jealous of Never A Dull Bling’s living it up 😉

Do you Yaw-Yan or don’t you Yaw – Yan? I learnt something new from Anghulinghugotero.

This bottom of the garden, from Writing in North Norfolk would feed my muse with inspiration to no ends.

Divine Body Expressions  from Oba in her neck of the woods.

How luscious from Deb Was Here.

Would you throw it out, if it were you? I still haven’t found the answer to this echo from Mandibelle.

Contrasting beauties from Lady Lee Manila.

Nope! I won’t mind having this corner view as a boss lady. Kat Myrman’s World.

Little things trigger thoughts of home for Pancake Bunnykins

So, when can we get a peek at yours? 🙂

Tuesdays Trickles 6…My Thinking Corner.

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Each Tuesday, share your very short snippets of positive, inspiring, motivating, health, spiritual, writing advice, clips, posts etc, that can serve as a prop to motivate others and simply add my link to your post.

I call it my thinking corner because, I actually take out a bit of time just to think through things, encapsulate my thoughts as much as possible and detoxify my mind.

It might work for you in a different way, but the idea is to get the positive thoughts flowing.

Please send in your little thoughts. You never know whose life you might inspire.



  • The single truth that we tell ourselves is a million times better than the half-truths that we are told by a dozen.
  • Hope is that last little flicker in the rubble of our burnt ashes. When you stoke the embers sufficiently, the flames will come alive.
  • Our dreams can never be the same neither will our journey. You must dream your dreams and not wait for hand-me- downs.
  • An empty heart will never have anything to give. Fill it with good things and it will overflow naturally.
  • Once that little voice in a mind asks, is this all there is? Then, there must be more to be done and we should be on the quest for that more.

Here Are Last Week’s Thinking Corner Thinkers 🙂

Small Choices. Rosema of Reading Writers little nuggets in brief.
