LAPC #172- A day of my week

Beach Walk

Do you love a beach walk?

I am sure you love it.

Why?

The beach walk is the most relaxing!

There are many benefits of beach walking.

Most important benefit to remember

You become stronger both physically and mentally.

The beach offers a gorgeous view of the land and sea.

Walking on the sand and watching the waves hitting the shore and listening to the typical beach sound, makes you calm and you are at peace yourself.

You also become humble as to how tiny you are as compared to the vastness of the ocean.

And the amazing Sunrise and Sunset?

Lucky are the ones who have beaches in their place of living.

How about drenching your feet in those constant waves loving to reach you?

First things first

I started the day with my favourite addiction

Coffee and Love are best when they are ‘hot’ German Proverb

Sunrise

I did not waste much time ⌚ as I wanted to see the Sunrise.

I was fortunate to witness the magnificent Nature.

“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings because it really is spectacular!” Mehmet Murat Ildan

All you need is the beach and a dog

From nowhere this dog started following me. I think it smelt the animal lover in me.

This friendly dog gave me all the company I needed.

“If you love someone set them free. If you hate someone set them free. Basically set everyone free and get a dog. People are stupid” Unknown

The sound and smell of the sea cleanses my soul

Do you just sit in the sand and relax or you take trouble to reach the seashore?

My friend, don’t simply sit on the sand and gaze the sky.

Nature offers you much more than that.

Just physically move your body, take a walk along the seashore and watch the sea waves.

“The ocean doesn’t complain about the dance of ten million waves; So don’t be concerned with the rise and fall of thoughts” Papaji

What is your thought when the giant wave reaches you?

These giant waves are amazing!

But many get scared because of their sheer size and height.

“Life is a wave, which in no two consecutive moments of its existence is composed of the same particles” John Tyndall

Stuck Wheel

As the temperature was raising and I came nearer to my walking schedule, I saw this stuck Wheel in the sand.

What about our experience of getting stuck in our lives at one time or another?

What do you do?

“Being stuck in the past is like walking forward with your back facing the front. You will always miss out on, what is in front of you” unknown

My friend, with the above wisdom, I will leave you now..

Have a great day!

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #148 – Spots and Dots

This challenge is a bit intimidating.

I was not sure what constitutes Spots & Dots!

According to diffsense.com

When used as nounsdot means a small spot, whereas spot means a round or irregular patch on the surface of a thing having a different color, texture etc. and generally round in shape.

When used as verbsdot means to cover with small spots (of some liquid), whereas spot means to see, find.

Dot

is a small spot.example- A dot of colour

Spot

is a round or irregular patch on the surface of a thing having different colour, texture etc.Generally round in shape. Example- The leopard is noted for the spots of color in its fur.”

This post is part of Ann Christine’s  LAPC-148 SPOTS & DOTS photo challenge. Thank you Ann Christine for making  my brain sharp.

In Ann Christine’s words

“My intention with this challenge, Spots and Dots, is … that you should have fun with it! But, also recognize and enjoy the different interpretations, meanings and importance of these two little words. Spots and Dots. Because even if they are small…they can make a big difference. In the written language for example.”

Flower

“No flower wants to be at home,when it’s raining outside” Mehmet Murat Ildan

The thing with heat is, no matter how cold you are, no matter how much you need warmth, it always, eventually, becomes too much. Victoria Aveyard

A quiet moment

“In the quiet moments of your day, what do you think and do? When you are with your Self and no one else, how does life proceed for you? Who are you when you are alone? Self-creation is a Holy Experience. It is sacred. It is you, deciding Who You Are.”  Neale Donald Walsch

 

Sunrise

“Beautiful things like nature inspire me. Sunrise is my favorite time of the day. A sky full of stars can be very inspiring. Quiet moments where you’re alone with yourself and the beauty, nature, and majesty that God has created. That is pretty inspiring.”  Brooke Burns

 

I wish One day God grants me ‘a quiet moment’ in the magnificent BUNGALOW shown below.

A quiet moment

Kumbakonam Coffee

Love is in the air and it smells like coffee

Everybody knows about coffee and its aroma which is an experience itself.The joy of having a simple cup of coffee is unexplainable.

Researchers say coffee improves our cognitive abilities.

Aroma of coffee is the aroma of life..

It’s addiction and healing both…

Bookworms grow with it…

Students revive from it…

Others just relish it… Moonwafture

What are the types of coffee ?

Filter coffee is an integral part of South Indian Culture,whereas in North India Tea (chai) is the beverage most popular.

What is that ‘degree’ to do with the coffee ?

There are many explanations as to how the Word ‘degree’ cropped up in the coffee.

  1. It is said that in 19 the century,one British collector of Tanjore district of Tamil Nadu State (India),liked the taste of the coffee so much that,he decreed that he should be served this coffee regularly and initially it was popular as ‘decree coffee‘ which later got converted to ‘degree coffee ‘
  • The ‘chicory’ content of the coffee was pronounced as ‘tikery’ which later became ‘degree’.
  • Milk was tested with lactometer for the quality and the ‘unit’ markings led to the name of ‘degree’ coffee.

How is the coffee served ?

Kumbakonam Coffee

The coffee is prepared in a brass filter and served in a brass tumbler set. ( BRASS tumbler and BRASS sauce with lipped walls )
