Dressed Up for the Day

I walked in a certain Deja Vu.
Dressed in a skirt of blue..
With a borrowed pair of ear-rings
beaded in purple and sea-green…
Along with some Kohl smeared
In my pink eyes;
I felt my spirits of goodness rise!!”

When in South Australia, I had often felt Adelaide as laid back and comforting as Chandigarh. So, while on my way..I picked up some flowers and leaves tucking them in my bag for the pottery/ceramics sessions I am attending in this city. The washed up streets, due to the early-day rains, and the fervent showcases of ‘love for nature’ dwelling anterior to every residence… filled me in with profound jollies!

As I walked past these little lovely, well-maintained gardens–something I miss in Hisar (my hometown); I was relishing each fresh breath of me.

Today- was my fourth session of the five I registered for, at the Red Mug Studio, Sector-8 C and I clearly had nothing in my mind to mould/create out of the stone-clay I am given. I thought, let the clay lead me..let nature rule me..take it easy..just be. No planning, no expectation..just be there for the joy of it. So, overall I had an amazing time of course and I hand-moulded the clay into small pieces of sweet-nothings! I skipped the wheel today for tomorrow’s session. 🙂

Quick-Pressing a Sun-Day Morning

''The base/space and a case study''

Flower Arrangement by mum in a Perfume bottle Vase

Before this time-line is lost
I thought to put up
another N-type
sillier – a Post 😉

I slept very few hours
but I feel so fresh
as blooming lil flowers

Woke up exactly 24 minutes back

I have really been eh!
‘what a
wonderful slack?’


I used to fret on that;
… ‘this’ is.

And it was like

an open door

to my room

carpeted floor
with an old D-mat

An August Saturday

- the weed with a pretty flower in deed?!?


These days, when I walk out of my lovely duplex house in Adelaide ( I rent a room here & ours is a shared house accommodation) I am seeing the winter season transforming itself to spring-type summers with rain/drizzle/light or heavy pouring plus so many colours blooming in the form of flowers and pretty weeds; you know? 🙂 … that I am reminded of a sunday-types *sunny* Monday I had last month in July…I had to refer a diary note I made just before I slept that night to let me record/remember that wonderful day & I am so glad that amidst the ‘mess’ in my room- eh! shall we call it ‘paper mess’-? as I usually keep my room really clean otherwise *hmm* except under certain URGENT-type conditions!! <—— whatever 😉 Continue reading

August ending in Amusement

Eh! where have I been all these days? 20 days, to be precise! Well, I was a little sick with temperature and the *brrrrr* cold weather in Adelaide 🙂 but all’s so beautiful even when I am ‘somewhat’ ill. All is amazingly actually wonder-full, to my obliviousness 😉 the temperature outside dropped and N’s body-temperature rose!!!

You know, I have kinda always been a little sick of the winters..I do not really know why but some people said it is because I am/was born in summers! Some ‘doctor types’ (no offenses) said because I get allergic to cold hearts 😉 Well, whatever it is, i know.. I like any weather when I am happy and dislike any damn weather condition when I am not too happy.

I can get inspired being bed-ridden and can also induce some of it in any one of you and you may disagree but well, who cares..I am free and do things at my will…you may keep moving or hang on, sway, vanish or may be just – float with me – STILL.

Sunday Rains and Roars

This Sunday, it was already raining from last night and I slept late as the sound of the falling rain kept me awake for long which usually takes me to for a ride, you know, a ride that may be fun sometimes and not so fun at times 🙂 I do not remember now thanks to my retention power that what kind of ride was it this time I am writing about but early morning, I heard a knock on my room and a voice calling ‘Nikki..Nikki…NIKKI’  “Damn! What now? Do I have to pay some more bills?” is what I thought but answered ”Hmm..haan..yes..I am awake.” I recalled that I have recently asked my friends at home to wake me up because no matter how many alarms I put or snooze, I still find it very hard to get out of my bed 😦 I really want to relish the mornings and I am trying and hey! it’s a Sunday, it suddenly occurred to me and these people are never up this early on a Sunday?! So, what was it? Continue reading
