Here is an intriguing picture shared by Harvey Kraft on LinkedIn.
The picture by itself can tell a thousand stories. But I am increasing the complexity a little. Here is a paragraph from another source.
So what exactly happened here? A woman felt powerless because she was unable to let go of a story she was holding onto which made her a victim. Even though she no longer saw this man, her former lover, she carried him within, and over and over again inside was keeping this version of the story alive.
TILL DEATH DO US APART
It seems there is no strength left in me.
I feel completely exhausted.
I can’t go on like this, I want to quit.
It has happened several times in my life.
Shamefull I accept that I had wanted to quit every time I felt exhauseted
Everytime my conscience nudged me
‘How could you quit, there is so much to do, everyone depends on you?’
I was young then so summoned my willpower and got up every time.
But now with age catching up, it seems an uphill task.
I’m lying on the floor, helpless, hoping to go…There comes an extending hand for help,
How could you be so desperate? Didn’t you promise, ‘ till death do us apart’?
Oh yes, I remembered.
Indeed how could I leave him in the middle of our journey?
He was always there to support me, never grumbled, criticized or belittled me.
What I was complaining about?
With a feeling of guilt, I grab the extended hand thankfully.
Indeed the show must go on ’till death do us apart.’
Didn’t once I advised everyone that’
When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction, and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.
The flowers were on the fringe, ready to fall. I touched the tree and was bathed with the fragrant flowers.
With that came the penalty, allergy attack.
So much to pay for the pleasure.

Night-flowering Jasmine These flowers are so heavenly fragrances but release its fragrance only at night. It is also called Shiuli in Bengali and Harshringar in Hindi.
This is one of the best healing herbs.
The word, Pārijāta refers to the Indian coral tree, night-flowering coral jasmine, or simply fragrance. But, written and pronounced as Parijāta it means – descended from, begotten by or fully developed.
In Hindu mythology, the celestial Pārijāta tree is the tree of the universe which is owned by Indrani and planted in svarga located between heaven and earth, which tree, also known as Kalpa-Taru, is believed to yield all objects of desire. This tree is identified with the Mandāra tree.
From the Bhagavata Purana, the Vishnu Purana and the Mahabharata it is learned that the elaborate process of Samudra Manthan of primal waters of the cosmic ocean yielded the Pārijāta tree as one of the three valuables, this tree, said to have blossomed atop Mount Meru in the garden of paradise and identified with the Indian coral tree, was claimed by Indra no sooner it rose to the surface and emitted its fragrance
The magic of light is incomplete without the darkness.
Old castles intrigued me. If I can travel back in the past, I will visit each and every castle in the world, not only to enjoy their grandeur and architecture but to explore what secrets lay behind those walls.
How many stories of love, kindness, brutality, cruelty, corruption, politics, power game, vendetta, murder, and goodness they have witnessed.
How dirty games their masters have played or how much their own people, relatives, and best friends have betrayed to gain power, wealth, name and fame.
Do they feel ashamed of the behavior of their masters?
How I wish they could talk.
The moon is still dark
I’m not worried
it’s going through its phases
it will shine again
what worries me is
the future of the earth

negligence of its

no concern for the earth

aren’t they afraid of
water world war

due to the scarcity of water
the moon is still dark
but a part of it shines
and so shines
in my heart
till the people

about water conservation
and many more people joining him
To the save the planet

I forgot all my problems watching this beautiful scene and felt grateful for being able to capture this.
