I took a long break from writing, didn't I? Last week was jam packed for me with a lot of doodling and designing. As the day goes by and as I practice, I am loving every detail or trick I learn. I am not sure if I mentioned that my husband is a musician! Well, he is a musician - lead guitarist in a couple of bands and a music composer. He has been working on his single for a year and he released it last week. You should listen to it!!!
Doodling is so much fun when you can add colour to it! Like I said before, in my previous blogs, I started doodling. I have been practicing on a daily basis - strokes, shapes, lines. I'm not great at drawing, I can draw an idea of what I want to draw but not perfectly! Is that confusing? Basically, I can't draw well. I tried copying drawings and practicing to get them right! And, I thought - "How can I doodle when I can't draw well?" I realised you don't have to be perfect at it, you can create your own style.
Do you look at little things around and try to make sense of it? Are we forgetting to live for today? I think we all do; look at things around us and wonder if this is how it is meant to be or could it be different. We forget to take a moment to look around and admire the moment. The other day, I stepped out of my house into the balcony to enjoy the weather that day. It was breezy with a slight drizzle, the trees whooshing like they are whispering to each other, the birds flying swiftly to find shelter and the smell of wet mud in the air. Something about all of this just makes me go - 'This is beautiful!'
I love trying new recipes at home and enjoying it comfortably instead of going out. Now, that is a combination of an ambivert and a foodie! Hahahaha.. Those times when I'm lazy to step out of the house but I want yummy food, I get buzzing in the kitchen.
Welcome to Rosie Hopkin's Sweet Shop of Dreams has a few moments where you can relate to the situation. It has this beautiful storyline making us believe that dreams can come true 🙂
Do you remember the time in college - an interesting class or lecture, you want to listen to it but involuntarily, you start doodling in your notebook? Sounds familiar right! Yes! I did that a lot. My books were filled with doodles; random doodles. It wasn't that the class was not interesting but I just needed to do something else with my hands while I listened. (By the way, I did quite well in college!)
Last night, I visited a vegan cafe in Hyderabad, Terrassen Cafe. A very small cafe and I don't think too many people visit the place except for vegans. I looked at the menu, flipped through the pages and I thought I made a bad decision to have come there. I flipped through the pages again and again. It was all vegetarian and too healthy!!!!!!!!
