Junk Frame...


So when the construction work was going on at home, I collected some broken pieces of tiles, marbles, stones and other junk. Made this frame using those odd bits and pieces and then used metallic paint on it. By the way those are my siblings, this was taken during the holiday season, its one of my favourite pictures (check the link to get a clearer view). I like the way the light falls softly on us, and I love the dress I am wearing (I call it my TCM dress) along with my favourite pair of jeans and of course I love those three funny people near me, they are all the entertainment I need... God in His infinite wisdom knew that I wouldn't grow up to be socially active so he created three crazy siblings who have no choice but to hang out with me and a whole horde of authors who create the characters I interact with on a daily basis. I sometimes wonder though how it would be to be at the other end of the spectrum... like going out to the cool places and hanging out with the hep and happening crowd and dancing away the night and coming home just before dawn totally exhausted but living it up. Would be equally cool I guess...

The post looks fabulous. The four of you are not very clearly visible but it seems like a happy happy family picture. I zoomed it now and I can see all of you clearly. Is this Chennai? Looks like an old picture but the smiles are nice and vibrant.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Joy always,
Susan

And you really underrated it by giving it the title 'junk'. This is what artists call, 'creative'. Cool work. :) By the ways, what do you mean 'TCM' dress? Timeless Classic Me ? :)

Blaisy, nice to see you here... you inspired me with your tattoo. If I do decide to get one, will ask you to design it... it'll probably be 'Sherlock Holmes' or something.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
