The cooling sewing

Wel not too cooling because in the wetness breeze blowing in tru the balcony one can only sweat in front of her sewing machine. But the results are paying off spreading motivation for new projects and colors around the house.

This was a perfect gift for teh young daughter of a friend. They recenty moved to HK  so i wanted to sprinkle some Chinese dust on them with this  traditional pattern on intense green fabric. The model was inspired by youtube, it s very simple to make an geat for somebody who do not know how to use a sewing machine yet but wants to make it work anyway.

The heaviness of the matter

Thursday is the only weekday evening i am free and can stay home in case i decide not to join my husband at his yoga class. The last couple of months have been so busy that i often wished to escape somewhere else from this horrible crowded city where evrything is so fake and profit oriented. The profit of the matter at its peak. I dont know how many years will pass before the trend will change direction. People talk and move like robot, there is no grace in the air, no sense of profound love an compassion. Some days are so heavy that the need to go walking barefeet on the grass during the day is overpushing. Tonite i will paint somebody similar 

Egofish

I presume you all know where ego is located in the brain. In case you have no idea about brain deepest anatomy and functions you are still on time for that. It is very easy to understand & useful to know. Here is a species of fish with a big ego which made me laugh a lot. Besids the fact that it seem to have been tatooed Chinese characters with black ink on the body too!

15 reasons why it s good to know own Mr Ego.

  1. because it gives a tremendous opportunity to laugh about your self and have lots of fun with your personal nuts!
  2. because it helps you understanding the real purpose behind your actions, dreams, goals…

  4. because it gives you the last chance to face your ultimate stupidity.

  8. because it will give you a vision on a large scale of  how things move in the community you belong to.

Urban design: how to plant flower blossoms in the metro

Hong Kong thought it and did it simply sticking gigantic panels with flowers onto the walls of each station of an entire metro line. A flower and a color for every station. Here’s the sunflower stop. How genuinly cool and creative from 1 to 10 is this invention? What do you think? I d love to hear some opinions out there..!

Let the creativity focus

Today is Shri Saraswati day. She is the Goddess of art, creativity, knowledge and learning (all of them contemplated by “Boundless inspiration” in a very very simple form). My aspiration in my current life is to achieve very high standard of communication, that is the reason why I love to be called Radha (although my parents did give another name meaning glorious).

Now Saraswati is “the flowing one”. Her speech flows, her communication flows, her attention flows, her music flows thru the veena.

She has got the divine powers to remove all the lethargy and the ignorance out from the human mind and push it towards a more elevated dimension where true wisdom, eloquence, essence and supreme knowledge are bestowed. In this special day she dresses with yellow and golden ornaments. sara1.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Books, papers and musical instruments are offered to her pure attention. Children are thought the first word today which is considered an auspicious day to start reading and writing. Spring time is coming! It is time of blossoming of the creativity and life in nature! Jay Shri Saraswati Nirmala Devi Namoh Namah!

My Xmas e-card

In this period with my colleagues at work we use to send email greetings for the season. The girls from Human Relations Department come slightly dressed up by angels and santas sharing sweets and best wishes. Its really cute, it’s a moment of relax and sweet laughing for many of us in the office.This is what I am going to send as Best Wish for the New Year to my mates: an extract of a speech about “How to be inspired” by Nirmala Devi Srivastava. Due to the fact that the main essence of our job (script writing, editing, designing) is the creativity, the word “inspiration” is overused among us, so maybe the time has come to understand its meaning and try to work it out!   

 [ That which is coming to us, which is “new” – and is very different to the “thoughts” that we have. First these inspirations come to us, in “light and shade” and then are “moulded by us into language”. They come from inside…then we are spontaneous, inspirational. It is not like normal thing, which is very superficial, and which is the interaction between thoughts and action, action and reaction.Reduce your arguments to the minimum…and minimum…and don’t think… the inspiration  will come to you from within, and when the inspiration will be coming, then you’ll find that it will be very different…it will be very beautiful.Go on telling your mind that “this is not…this is not…this is not” any thoughts that comes to your mind you go on telling “this is not… not this… not this…”then the inspiration starts coming. You see what I feel… people are not inspired… they have got fear, on one side…or else they go into ego trip. So to stay in the centre, what you have to do is to go on saying “not this thought” …the most intelligent person is the one who knows that our intellect is just an ego trip…this is the sign of pure intelligence…of pure understanding…that the heart is the rule […] but then what is the use of the brain…why not have only heart you see would be alright…but the brain is the one which “acts”. Heart is the inspiration…but the brain acts on it… ]
