Everything is Temporary!

“Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure that you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way”

“Don’t make permanent decisions on temporary feelings.”

“Nothing lasts forever. Everything is temporary, even your emotions.”

“There is comfort in knowing that everything is temporary.”

“We try to fix the outside so much, but our control on the outer world is limited, temporary, and often, illusory.”

“Everything is temporary: people, emotions, thoughts and scenery. Do not become attached. just flow with it.”

It’s all about angles and intersections!

When it comes to angles and intersections, I remember the beautiful and intricately carved temples of the Hoysala Empire. Each and every pillar and wall of the temples are carved to perfection! Well, see the images below if you do not believe me…

Weekly Photo Challenge : Unusual

It is unusual for a moth to be this big…

unless it is called “the big brown moth.”

I had never seen a moth this big. Never Ever!

It was peacefully resting on our window, and kitty did not seem interested in ‘this prey’, thank heavens for that!

The two brownish-yellow blobs that looks like eyes, and a faint ‘mustache’, this moth can be called Hercule Poirot of Moths, right? 😉

These are special stamps; special because the first one is made of cardboard and the second happens to be 3D.

 

Sometimes, it’s good to have err.. a beady affair.

None of my photo-posts are complete without a photograph of flower(s). Right? 😉
