i want to be magic





i want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile.
i want to be a friend of elves and live in a tree. or under a hill.
i want to marry a moonbeam and hear the stars sing.
i don't want to pretend at magic anymore.
i want to be magic.

  2. Your pictures are so beautiful, so evocative, it represents an atmosphere so calm, so serene.
    I also love your living room decor in all white.

    I do feel that some people are capable of turning their life and their ordinary daily moments into magical moments. To them, life is not so ordinary at all, it is not mundane and mechanical- if we have that deep perceptive ability...and you can become what you believe..yes, it is true.

    Niru, I wanted to tell you another thing. It is very very surprising that I took some similar shots with a similar looking vase and similar colored flowers last year and I am sending the photos to you via email. Isn't it amazing that sometimes we share so many similar tastes/ creative ideas without knowing what both are doing/thinking. Yes,it is indeed a miracle !

    Its magic !

    I love all the photographs, especially the last one and the second one and the photograph of the half visible crochet mat and the flower vase over it-{the second photo to the right}.
    P.S: Don't forget to check your mail !
    have a nice day ,

    1. First, thank you Sanghamitra for the mail [will be checking in a minute] and for letting me know that we both shared a bit of a similar beauty and grace, only separated by time :)
      You are so right, we find magic only when we believe, have faith, know where and how to find it. Then life itself is magic... there are such enchanting mysteries to drink in and moments to feel, to live.

      And I'm happy to be blessed to see the magic, to BE the magic.

      Your kind words are as always sweet to my heart, thank you.
      Now off to collect my mail :)

    2. Thank you Niru for checking the mail and also for replying and liking the pictures. Yes, I wanted you to download the photographs and keep them with you. These flowers are sold in the market only in winters,that too if I am lucky enough to find them. And these shots are from the winter of 2011 {date of taking the pictures: 24th January, 2011}.
      I noticed your header and the overall blog layout just now, It is looking so good ! And what about your shop {I saw the button } are you planning to open one soon ? All the best for that and keep me updated.
      have a nice day !

    1. Every time I'm complimented for my little nest, it makes me truly child-like happy, because it's completely handmade with only natural and simple things; sans luxury. Its beauty holds such meaning to my heart.
      Thank you Ronnie for letting me experience this joy.
