Long back while in college I had had attended stitching classes and since then I have stitched for myself and my children. I remember I stitched one shirt for my husband too. I loved stitching frocks for my daughter. The excitement of imagining a design, sometimes dresses in a movie were an inspiration too. Creating something beautiful from a piece of cloth and the approval of my daughter and the sense of satisfaction looking at end product were some of the reasons behind stitching. Now, for quite some time I have been stitching for myself. I stitched four shirts for our grandson. There is a feeling of joy when I see him wearing it.

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. Due to the pandemic I could not go to the Home for the mentally challenged for two years. I had been going there since 2011. I have started going again. I was happy that some members remembered me :) All of them are an important part of my life.
There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made our lives richer.
