On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    For me... it's a beautiful music... especially jazz or blues... honestly, sometimes I think in my previous life I was born on shores of Mississippi river. :smiley:

    I like to talk with intellectuals because they give me a lot of motivation and inspiration. When I am in the field for any community development programmes, I enjoy talking to people and listen to their stories of life.

    for me it's only my emotion and my feeling. Painting is always the best way to let my feeling out, before I explode.

    What about photos combined with Photoshop skills? Some people might say it's not strictly speaking art, but I enjoy it, and I think it's creative. (It's also a lot less messy than oils and acrylics). :blush:

    Here are a couple of my new creations:-

    I always get inspired by the colours of nature. I enjoy being outside in the summer, and seeing the trees and listening to the birds, and that is always what encourages me to be the most creative.
