The Wind didn’t come from the Orchard—today—

A storm is brewing over the South China sea, hitting central and north provinces of Vietnam. Pray that it wouldn’t play much havoc. Impact of the storm called ‘Sonca’ is seen in Saigon too. Today is, like Pooh bear says, ‘rather a blustery day’ in Saigon. A wind is raging outside today. It all startedContinue reading “The Wind didn’t come from the Orchard—today—”

Life is all about balance

Today, the 21st of June marks the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Northern hemisphere. Beautiful photographs and videos of summer solstice when mother Earth leans her head towards the Sun to ‘apricate‘ (a new word I learnt today, borrowed from Latin which means ‘to bask in the sun‘)Continue reading “Life is all about balance”

Over the Moon…again

  Here comes another full moon; the first full moon of the year 2017. The full moon of January is called the Full Wolf Moon, Hunger Moon or the Cold Moon… It is said that wolves howled out of hunger in the cold winter month and hence the name wolf moon.

A slash of Blue, a sweep of Gray, some scarlet patches on the way…

  “How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!”~ED  Emily does to me what Nature does to her. She visits me at the most unexpected times, uninvited; out of context visits which I love and entertain. I started a new painting with the fishing boats of Mui Ne in mind. MuiContinue reading “A slash of Blue, a sweep of Gray, some scarlet patches on the way…”

Super Moon…moon tales never end.

  Yet another Super Moon!!! The Moon has come very close to the Earth after decades! The distance between the two is known by an interesting term- perigee. I walked to the Saigon river banks yesterday but was a bit late to see the rising moon. The moon was up and glowing like an oversizedContinue reading “Super Moon…moon tales never end.”
