The daily post photo Challenge – Summer Loving


Our summers are very hot, but fortunately the rains start in June and the temperature comes down. This year the rains started only in the first week of this month and we are having good rains. The other it was bright and raining. We caught sight of the sun shining through the leaves of the coconut tree, from our house . It was a beautiful sight.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.


  1. It is lovely to hear a positive view on rain! Here in England most people will complain about the weather when it rains … and also we don’t see rain anything like you can experience in India! In our family, we don’t mind the rain and happily walk in the woods when it is wet šŸ™‚


  2. Thanks Peggy, we are so dependent on the rains for our agriculture. Usually the rains start in the first week of June, but this time we had only three days of rain and people were so worried. But we are helpless. But fortunately the rains came. Sometimes I think the way we are cutting down trees, we are inviting trouble, if not now, for the future generations. Lakshmi
