As the head bows, all thoughts and emotions wash away. For a moment, everything is still.
Tum ho sab raajan ke raaja, aape aap gareeb nivaaja.

Whilst campers were listening to their talks and on activities, this Mata jee was humbly brushing the Darbar Sahib floor. At the feet of the Guru - Gurbani on her lips, just getting on with it.

I peered from the garden window into the living room and there sat mother on the sofa, doing her thing. I love watching her, these moments. Her funky glasses that tint in the sunlight - yeah I like them too.

I enjoy the company of older people. Perhaps it’s because they speak at a steadier pace; every word seems more meaningful, it’s easier to both observe and remain present in conversation. I enjoy keeping eye contact - the life in their gaze. I enjoy their pace of thinking. I like to hug them.  I don’t see my grandparents often, so it’s nice when I see those of others. 
Grandma Gill came over today to check on the spinach she gave us last week. Her presence brings a smile.

I don’t have Kung(cough)-flu at the moment, but when it hits, Mother taught us the way: Tumeric Milk. Fixes EVERYTHING in the WHOLE WORLD.

'101 Great Samurai Prints' came through the post today, feeling inspired by them.

Enjoying the making of postcards via the Three.Six.Five project. One day they shall be sent to friends, if I overcome my slight attachment to them.

"Yours is this world. Start from where you feel to; stay where you desire and wind up where you want to. It has no beginning and no end. You don’t fear anyone, but yourself. You are the fright and also the frightened"
Extract from ‘Self Percept’ - Baba Isher Singh Ji.
I’ve been playing with watercolour lately. Today I bought a set of blank A6 watercolour postcards, so I’ll be making a little collection..purrhaps

I love painting with physical paints, though it’s not a medium I use often. (The last time was June 2013).
I’d like to make more time for it this Summer.
So many University projects and deadlines approaching, but today I sat in the garden and just chilled. 
Acrylics and Ink on wood.

Bought some dip-pens today. The one my brother gave was a bit too scratchy, these are alot more supple.
I love the LIFE in it’s lines, so so much.

This morning before work, I saw a billboard which for a moment I questioned. Like others, it skewed and delooo’d. But then I felt amused, let it go and just sketchbooked. What a dramaaa, what can you do. Do what you love and enjoy the show.

Tonight I was blessed to listen to some beautiful Indian classical music by Kirpal Panesar and Sudarshan Singh at Darbar Unplugged.

I tried to allow the sounds and vibrations to guide my hand across the page - minimal thinking, just feeling. It was an extremely enjoyable and mindful experience. 

Added some colour later.

Copyrights and Watermarking

It’s nice to see others sharing your work, to know that we’ve connected in some way.

Do they need to know who did it? Not really. Do they need my permission for something? When was it mine anyway. It feels a bit like passports and passports are a bit weird. 

Though I personally like to find out who the maker is, so I can check out the rest of their work.

Quite undecided on this whole concept, leaning to and fro.

Expression and connection alone, feels like enough.
