A Journey called Life...

The painting you see on the header best describes my outlook towards life! Unruffled, calm taking stock of what life has to offer in the best way possible. While still continuing my fishing...Though I have never been fishing, I can empathize on a different level what that reflects to life. If your bait is good you will surely land up with the best catch! Plus it teaches you patience, the most important trait to lead a happy life.

In a different lifetime, I was a writer, poet, an artist. In this, I am a wife, mother, a blogger. While my day job is something I love, it is completely different from what my blogs talk about. I believe one person can have passions for many.

I am very passionate about Indian Cuisine and would love to share my whatever little knowledge I have learnt from my mom and mother-in-law. If you are interested you can check out what gets cooked in my kitchen in Cooking 4 all Seasons.  I am also interested about Parenting, planning diet for Kids and Diabetes. I urge you to check out Spice your Life! I am sure you will have load of things to Spice up your Life!

Though this space was created first, it hardly got the attention it deserved. As a remedy I decided to update everyday with something that was my focus during the day. Enlightenment, spark of light or knowledge, call what you may, can occur at odd times to different people. To me, it mostly occurs when I am on my bike, especially climbing a bridge. With the cool breeze that hits hard, raising me along, makes my heart light, soul bright and thoughts sour to a world different. Words that flow may not be exactly like from The Bard, but then I am not the Bard right!

I hope you stay to enjoy what this space has to offer you!

Srivalli,

For me it is the downhill descent with the wind swishing past my face that calms me. :) And inspiration strikes me during my tossing and turning in bed due to insomnia.

In a different life, I too was a writer (well, reporter) and an artist (throwing pots). Motherhood has channeled me as well to cook healthier and blogging has reignited my love for writing.

I love your daily jounal, which I wasn't aware of till today. I will be back for more. I wish I had the discipline to do that.

Right now, I am crossing my fingers, hoping I'll be able to finish Sra's 365 project that I joined with such enthusiasm.
