To be an artist is to believe in life – Henry Moore
The just concluded World Art Exhibition in Dubai was sublime. My eyes fed on the creativity of talented artists from different parts of the world with such greed and pleasure that I went away sated and feeling fuller than one who had gorged on a 5-course meal continental buffet.
The huge display of artwork that ranged from the simple to magnificent pieces evoked all possible emotions that you can think of except anger. I tittered in laughter, I sighed, I gaped, I felt wistful, happy, melancholic, inspired…. Some pieces were simple to understand, some frightened you with their darkness, but the greatest feeling that I had was to take all of them home with me.
Unfortunately, at this present time, my heart is willing but my pocket is lean. The prices of some of these pieces could keep yours truly fed fat for a year. The wonderful thing about exhibitions is that for the token fee charged at the entrance you get to enjoy the lovely ambiance and window shop for free 😉
Here are some of the photos taken out of over 600 shots that need to be curated and enjoyed.
Take a peek. Lady Lee inspires me with her photos. I’ve got an idea for this weekend.

Cherries on top are pretty and metaphorically speaking, I certainly love lots of cherry on top moments in my life 🙂
A day draws to a close with a gorgeous Sunset that always reminds me that every sun that sets also promises a new dawn and instils a warm sense of peace inside me. I remember my mother always saying that when you let the Sun go down on your sense of unrest you wake up carrying over residues of anger.
Open up your heart and don’t close your mind. Let the cherries of other people’s love and care decorate your life.
Oh! My sweet desserts! I love such sweet talk 😉
Have a cupcake and a pleasant weekend 🙂
May the fountain of your life keep glowing with grace and cheerful light on top.
