that make life, LIFE.
I was talking to a friend of mine about this mandala about a week ago. She mentioned two interesting things. The first was that she was attracted to this mandala even though the colours were not something she would normal go for. The second was that she felt guilty for wanting to purchase this.
I know I keep disappearing and “coming back” to this little slice of internet and I don’t really have an excuse except to say that working from home can be amazing and yet disastrous..hehe.
It’s 1.15 am on a very, very early Sunday morning here as I write this. I didn’t think I would be posting a blog post, any time soon with all that’s going on right now, but…sometimes, life surprises you..or me 😉
oh beautiful, amazing life. With all its twists and turns, with its surprises that are sometimes good and sometimes not too good, jolting you from one phase to the next, causing upheavals in well laid plans only to teach us that sometimes you just gotta go with the flow and to remind us that plans are living, breathing things that should have the flexibility to shift, turn, expand and contract when it needs to.
So, for those of you who follow and/or visit the blog (not the same thing sometimes 😉 ), you may have noticed a little change. I took the leap and registered this site as a .com, so the web address is now anitashree.com . I did this about a week ago, I think. I’m not too sure, and I’m a little lazy to check my email to see exactly when I did..ha! Some things don’t change. I also registered another blog quite some time ago and named that mainlycoloursandmandalas .
A long over due post, a challenge posted by Linda from litebeing.com, “to celebrate our unique essence and energy, and to embrace our inner god and goddess”. It is called “Celebrate Your Magnificence Challenge”. I came across this blog challenge more than a month ago, 43 days ago to be exact. It was my first day back from an almost 3 year-long hiatus away from WordPress, and Linda’s blog was one of the first few I had visited, and this was the post I plonked on.
So, how does one start a blog post after disappearing from the face of the blogoshpere for so long…
Maybe a “Hello!” ? Or maybe a “Hi!”?
It’s been ages. More than a few ages I think. I don’t even know if those I called friends on here are still blogging or if they have left this space of sharing for good or even if they’ve taken some time off, like me.
I’m so hoping this post doesn’t come off sounding like a pity party for one. It’s not that I’m not prone for that but I’m tired of pity parties. It drains me and let me reiterate if you are confused, this isn’t a pity party.
I will be honest though, right at this moment my heart feels sad…a sense of heaviness and “they” say sometimes it’s a good thing to let the words flow as a sort of purging of negative feelings. Well this is it.
Quite some time ago, a friend of mine introduced me to this group called Body Without Organs (BWO). The name *does* sound a little off putting and one would wonder what sort of music a group called such would be a part of. Well…I was very pleasantly surprised 🙂
Just two days ago, I came across a song from them and…I fell in love with it.
As I type this there are another 3 days to Christmas. Sindy from bluebutterfliesandme came up with the idea of celebrating the season of Christmas by collaborating with some bloggers posting each day with whatever theme we wanted to.
