Taking Off On A Trip…

img_5844

I am on a short trip to Lagos, Nigeria. 5 days or thereabouts.

Flight from DXB to LOS (Dubai to Lagos) is about 8 hours plus.

Just in case I’m unable to log into my blog, I set a couple of posts to publish (if WordPress behaves itself).

However, if I can log into my blog during my trip, I will surely do my thing. This blogging is an elixir of sorts you know.

Don’t miss me too much 😉

Love and Light

Finding my solitude

In my World, finding solitude is not always easy to achieve physically – my dear Himself and our children are always underfoot one way or the other 😉

I’ve learnt over time to create ways to be still and find inner quiet even when everywhere is abuzz.

I deliberately seek out pockets of moments to enjoy being by myself and to appreciate those moments.

Once, I told a friend that as a mother, to visit the shops alone and to shop quietly without the children is a vacation. Thus, I linger over a pot of tea/coffee, natter over nothing with strangers and come home humming with a gleam in my eye’s 🙂

One of my favourite Cafes’ in town. Sit and nurse a pot of tea, watch people, eavesdrop and listen to gossip 😉

The Daily Post – Solitude

Classic Vintage, a night out with beautiful people…Echoes of my neighbourhood 23

On Thursday’s, I share pictures 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 a house, 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 could, at least, see them through you.

These are some bits and pieces of my past week, from taking children to Shotokan-karate classes, work, dinner blah, blah running helter-skelter, my wheel of life keeps rolling.

I absolutely love vintage and antique stuff. Unfortunately, I don’t have the pocket to afford them, but at least I can enjoy a good look at them, so it was a delight to run into this vintage cafe, where I can go and satisfy my eyes with eye-candy and take loads of photos 😉

I am happy that this week which has been so and so for me is coming to a close. My emotions hurtled from one end to the other all week, but a warm evening spent last night in the ambience of beautiful, intelligent friends does make one feel a lot better 🙂

We e-zoomed around various neighbourhoods on our laptops, pads, phones, and got a peek into what lovely folks are doing.

A beautiful season, London calling: yes I agree with you Lady Lee, London is calling me in the winds. Gorgeous photos.

Some bumper snickers from Kat: Ha, ha. This is a good exercise when you are stuck behind the wheels. Take a look and see what you can find 🙂

A beautiful evening: we all need this right now. A chance to destress and unwind. Simply serene.

Thoughts and entanglements: I love happening on such incidents. Makes you wear a smile all day long 🙂

Giggles and tales: So much beauty of nature, people and fat gorgeous Cows and Geese. I like 🙂

Rosses of Donegal:  absolutely gorgeous and dreamy views of Rosses area in County Donegal in North West Ireland.

Don’t horde the beauty of the life around you, just for yourself. Do share with us😉

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.

Timeout…Every day beautiful people # 59

“It’s always good to take a little time out of your busy life to focus just on yourself and if you’ve got a friend to share a cup with, that’s goodness tasted and remembered.” Jacqueline

It’s a weekend good folks. There’s nothing like a little timeout to chill and natter with a good friend with some music in the background, or,

to chill all by yourself with a compelling good read, soft music, a warm cuppa or glass of cold drink – whichever suits you best 🙂

Enjoy. Love and light

Out of the silent breath

I listen to the tinkles of the water,

the thrums of the guitar and the deep rhythm of the bass.

No words are said, as you stare deeply into my eyes.

The look caught within your pupils, mirrors all the love trapped inside

aching to flow out, a syllable at a time. Just like that soft jazz.
