One Such Day...


“Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.”
-Khalil Gibran

Just being oneself and enjoying the sounds and sights of existence, aware of each and every moment... literally each and every moment...when time starts to slow down and one feels that each day could very well be ages...is something extraordinary! 

We often mumble and grumble: "The day is too hectic!"
"The days are flying fast!"

And yet there are those days when things take the opposite turn.

Such days, colours start filling up each space, time and the world around...infusing brilliance; like the rich and myriad hues through a prism, in perhaps everything that one touches...sometimes painstakingly, sometimes fluidly... the colours just span through you, extending itself into the canvas, glowing and fading as spreading and taking its own form. You just become the medium! A soulful medium! 

One such day, this happened!

The bird pictures that inspired me are from a share of a friend's in Facebook...I forgot who it was though!

Linking it to PPF...Go ahead to see some awesome art!

What lovely drawings and paintings of the birds. I like your reference to the "Holy" moment, too. And to "Be" present all the time.
