Welcome to my little space on the WORLD WIDE web. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you find more than what you came looking for.
This blog Treasured Trifles and Trifled Treasures is just that. Words , lines , songs and memories that I love and treasure. Every post here is really close to my heart , or at least it was when I posted them.
Comments and Compliments welcome.
I love life,breathe Bollywood ,enjoy lyrically good music and company of simple people and creating pieces of art (everything from small earrings to oil paintings) and DANCE , I also eat a lot , love to make and break exercise regimes and weight reduction promises , and of course “WORK” whenever I am not doing any of the above.
I am a very restless person and keep moving from one thing to other , but strongly believe in this simple thought ,”There is nothing in the world that can replace the joy and satisfaction in giving ,sharing and caring ” – 2010
And 8 years later…
I think I still love life :), and I still like “good” Bollywood movies more so because they add a little Indian-ness to my otherwise expat life. Lyrically good music still blows my mind. Simple and honest people are hard to come by but they are still the best kind of people I like to hang out with. Art has for the most part taken a back seat. Dancing is limited to the narrow space between the bed and dresser right in front of the door mirror in my room. I still enjoy food, but I think I have become more selective over the years, quality has sort of overpowered quantity. There are rarely flavors that surprise my tastebuds now, but they do come by every now and then. The needle of the weighing balance does not grab my attention as much as it used to, the needle and I seem to have made a truce of sorts! Work does take up the bulk of my day but most days I still manage to find a moment to admire the sunrise, or chase a butterfly, catch a snowflake, listen to the songbirds, feel the wind on my face, or the warmth of the sun on my back….in other words enjoy the simpler things in life. I am as restless as I have ever been, but probably more nostalgic than anxious. Lastly, even though helping others seems more and more like a selfish desire of the helper to find peace or feel good, I am still to find an activity that can “replace the joy and satisfaction in giving, sharing and caring.” – and I guess the world we live in needs to hold on to that thought now more than ever, because a good deed is still a good deed. – 2018
P.S. Reading both versions one after another, it seems almost like a journey from naivety to borderline cynicism… 🙂 )
