"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?

Farewell, My Friends!


I've had just enough time...  to say farewell but I'm not sure about the return...



This is my dead bonsai plant that I found too beautiful to stay dead...


Farewell, my friends. I regret to write this note.

But my health took a turn for the worse and I’ve to spend more time managing it which did not leave me quite enough time to write – at least not in the quality or with the same passion I had been sharing with all of you, my friends.




So I sought to "revive" it to give it everlasting beauty...


Recent events have also forced me to redirect my attention to other more pressing matters and is another reason why I have to leave. 

I don’t know when or if I will be back. Maybe, one fine day after I licked my problems and the sun is shining brightly; I may just find the energy to do it all again. Nothing is definite in life; that much I know. 




To remind me that memory can preserve beauty forever...


So meanwhile, it is farewell. Thank you for all the beautiful moments. I will cherish them and the memories of some of you will never fade, you know who you are. I did not have time to say individual goodbye so I apologize for saying it here. Sorry.

I hate long drawn out goodbyes so this is it, I’m turning my back and walking away with heavy steps. The leaves are falling...




          Something will never die if we don't let it...        
          It may not live on in its original form but it can still live -        
          In other different but no less beautiful way...

    I'm sorry to hear about your health and I hope you take the necessary time to manage it and fully recover. I will miss your posts and writing - for sure. Do take care. I don't take this to be a goodbye - I'm sure when and if health permits in the future, you will write again, and do keep in touch :)

    My dear friend Thou. So sorry that your health has took such a turn that you cannot continue on flickr in the same way. Whilst you will be missed, I understand that you need some time and care to get better. So take care my friend and get better and stronger soon. I hope you feel better soon. I have emailed you too.

    You really upset me Thou ; I wish it was a play on words with the dead bonsai plant and your inventive mind ... If not, I feel very sorry my good friend and I'm looking forward to your next put ups ✿ ✿ ✿

    So I sought to "revive" it to give it everlasting beauty...

    You have certainly done that my friend. It looks beautiful. I don't know much about plant doctoring but I wonder if you can revive it by re-routing it if it doesn't reblossom.on its own accord with tender care . And yes nothing is definite - we recently lost our two beloved pet goldfishes that which was a horrible shock and sadness as they could have potentially have many years to go. They inspired a lot of smiles and warmth and poetry in my heart. So I am very sad to lose them. I hope you have a much better possibility of reviving this tree in one form or another.

    You did break my heart from every point of view ... Feel so sad about it all my good friend ✿ ✿ ✿
