"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Wishing You A Little Bit Of Everything

I've had just enough time to...   wish everyone a little bit of everything

The sun finally breached the the distant Himalayan hills and clouds

Wishing you a little of everything
A little bit more joy, a little bit less sorrow
A little bit more peace, a little bit less strife
A little bit more progress, a little bit less obstacle
A little bit more fulfillment, a little bit less work
A little bit more variety, a little bit less of the same
A little bit healthier, in mind, body and spirit
A little bit wealthier, in what really counts
A little bit stronger, to weather the storm
A little bit happier, with enough to share
For a little bit is all you need but I wish you
Lots and lots of love in the coming year!


Himalayan Dawn, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, Santoor


  1. A 1000 Reasons
    I danced in silence till I feel the sun kissed my closed eyelids and opened them to the glorious lights climbing over the distant mountain peaks. I saw its smiles brightened up the whole valley shaking it from its slumber, rousing and stirring up Life. The valley becomes alive before my very eyes but I wonder how is it I saw all these when they were too far away for me to make out the details. But I saw the farmer leaving the house, I saw the housewife cooking the breakfast and I saw the dogs exploring the street. And the sounds. I hear them all. The rooster making their morning calls, the barking dogs and braying goats. Did I imagined them or did the sun share this insight with me as it infused me with its life-giving lights. For it was still silent at the edge of the hill where I stood and the valley is miles and miles away…

  2. A 1000 Reasons
    I spread out my arms and greedily soaked in the lights. Even at this intense and inspiring moments, some thoughts intruded. Shouldn’t I be living this way, every day? Every moment of joy brought me closer to the moment I had to reluctantly leave. I want this to last forever but I know it is impossible. I expelled the intruding thoughts with a strong exhale and breathed in fresh air. I am happy at this moment and that is all that counts. Enjoy it to the full, unadulterated. There will time enough for sadness when the time for leaving comes…

    I've hooked you up with all the photos I put aside everything and sometimes I forget to eat and sleep up to make my eyes tired and watery. Drawings that seemed to have a feel of magic, the beauty of which is summed up so perfectly, the depth of field to give a very strong impression dimension. All you've done is very spectacular and fun every person who saw it. I'm so proud to have a friend like you. Have a great day my friend with your family. Thank you so much 4 your wonderful comments on my photo stream.

    This gives a sense of peace and enlightenment as if Buddha has chosen us to be there with him at the top of the world/

    maccu piccu..... in the morning... the clouds rise from below the peak.. envelope you...the continue to rise...to the sky above... and i think of the ancient peoples who lived there....
    the space at maccu piccu is somewhat enclosed by other mountains...it is not so high as where you are here... so the whole feeling is "nestled" into the earth
    in this photo... i am struck by how very very tiny we are... rather like when Rilke calls the stars and constelations..."mere pollen of the blossoming Diety"...

    great prose, love it.....) very lovely image!!!!
