A bit of yellow here n an extra yellow there, the colour sure makes me happy! I instantly take a liking to those who walk around dressed in yellow! Why not do Cheerful? Whenever the mood is a bit low, a small sprinkling of yellow is all it takes to pep up! A yellow top to go with my denims, a sure mood enhancer!
Especially when things are looking all dreary and dull, a yellow juicy pulpy mango to lift the sinking hollows of my tummy… Whole, sliced, cubed, carved, frozen or juiced,its your call! Mangoes go a long way in keeping my spirits high!
A beautiful yellow sunshine through the clouds, while you look at the distance… walking on the beach skirting the shoring waves as they curl away from underneath my feet, priceless!
Or a yummy sunny side up with golden toasts for breakfast! The dressing as depicted goes along with as much adventure you can allow on your pallete and plate.
This post was just a pause from the usual thoughts racing to find words and appearing on screen. A glimpse of my kind of whimsy, to show and share with you.Yes, sometimes, its good to do a Maria ( Sound of Music) and recount “these are a few of my favourite things”!
Have you walked through a boulevard lined with amaltas (cassia fistula) trees in full bloom? Has it given you the feeling of golden beauty showering upon you? If not, you must try it, its a devine upliftment of the puny self.
We all credit ourselves to be great thinkers, planners and doers. But do you spare a thought for yourself? All we need is to sit back once in a while and reflect on self. Have you done it yet? Have you let this whimsical thought float in… wherein you can pinpoint what you like; what gets you, what momentary thing pleases you?
When gloom surrounds me , especially in these debilitating times and with dark monsoon clouds looming outside my window…I simply bathe my thoughts and rooms in yellow!With lights I mean 😀
To end on a fun song by Beatles… Here comes the Yellow Submarine! Yes, it is a song for living in the moment, just like enjoying the colours of life!
