Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

There is a painting of a Tribal girl , to which I always feel drawn to. To any direction I go its smiling eyes will follow me, as if saying happiness is just a state of mind, you don’t need money or power to be happy. Her innocent face shows peace , calmness and inner glow which is face is very bewitching. Perhaps its a gift from my brother that’s why I feel very much attached to it.
Orange is one of God’s favorite colors— He stuck it right there between red and yellow as the second color in the rainbow. He decorates entire forests with shades of orange every autumn. It shows up in sunrises at the start of the day, sunsets at the end of the day, and in the glow of the moon at the right time of night.

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 5 – Meraki
Meraki [may-rah-kee] This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.
I think whatever I do , I do with Meraki or I don’t do it. Be it cooking, sketching, writing , photography or any house hold work. I just didn’t know the exact word to describe it. Thanks to Rarasaur I have learnt a new word for it.
She has asked to write List 5 things you always do with meraki, here are they-
1- I always say sorry and thank you with Meraki.
2- I love my family, friends and every one with Meraki and when I hate dishonesty, violence, lies etc ? yes, that too with Meraki
3- I write my blog with Meraki.
4- I like, appreciate and comment on others post sincerely, with Meraki.
5- I love life and have lived with Meraki and I’ll embrace death with Meraki. ( Wow sounds very romantic no?)
Any task we do not do with meraki lacks something, seems incomplete and lefts a taste of dissatisfaction in us. Whereas whatever you do with
soul, creativity, or love, will fulfill you with joy and satisfaction.
Now about sharing a picture that represents doing something with meraki, I can’t leave this oppertunity to showcase some of of my drawings and photography.
