Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Celebration Time!

This morning brought a pleasant news for me. A message from WordPress reminded the forgetful me, that it is my blog’s 4th anniversary.

Well, I can’t believe that time has flown by so fast since my first post.  My journey from an absolute novice, to now, has been an enriching one. It’s been a privilege to read the works of some amazing writers here. All of you have been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to me. My learning and growth embodies a reflection of you all. (I am still work in progress, though 🙂 ).

Thanks to your encouragement, I published my maiden book of poetry and haiku titled “Eclectic Verses” (available on amazon). My writings are simple, from the heart. It is the love of my readers that has helped me tide this far.

I am truly grateful for all the support, likes, comments and encouragement from my readers from across the globe. You have been my lifeline, helping me stay afloat in the ocean of blogosphere. I am glad to have such a diverse set of readers. There are the loyalists, who comment on each of my posts, (eternally indebted to them), the occasional peepers, who drop by sometimes, the silent likers, the wholesale likers (who like a dozen or more posts, at one go in a jiffy ;-)). No matter who you are, I am genuinely thankful to each one of you.  Each like and comment still carries the same joy, as the first one.

Melange of thoughts waft by

fall as contours of ink on a page

words fill them with color

to etch them in this vast expanse

giving them, an eternal identity!

Before I sign off, I would like to understand from you, what is the one thing about my writing that makes you come back to read it?

Once again a big thank you to one and all. Stay safe and stay blessed.

  6. Radhika, the blog is a reflection of what the blogger (behind the scenes)is…and though many of us don’t know you personally or met you in the real live-it does tell us that whatever written is pure and un-adultetated and that’s all we ask for.
    U seem like a ray of sunshine…Radhika-ji ( always wanted to use the ‘ji’) keep writing as u always do.
    You seem like a wonderful person. God bless

    Congratulations. This reminds me even I complete four years in August. Anyways, I understand how this feels. The blogging world has been a constant support. I adore the simplistic pieces that you come up with, that is what brings me back again and again. I sincerely hope Eclectic Verses reach great heights. Cheers to this one and many more to go.

May you continue to journey through bright sunshine and keep us readers delighted with such kaleidoscopic gems. No essay would have expressed your thoughts as well as those 5 lines of verse – outstanding! And I will keep coming back to get tattooed with the colourful inks that flow from your musings. Why? Well, you share in words simple the sincere stirrings in your soul, and somewhere therein I find a connect with my true self…

    Hi, Radhika,
    Can i take the liberty to answer your question first?
    Your question to the readers is “Before I sign off, I would like to understand from you, what is the one thing about my writing that makes you come back to read it?”
    To put it across simply,can i say it is not “one thing”….it is a unique blend of hues and colors.
    Your writing is sanguine, bright, cheerful,and from the heart. It is simply all embracing,like the sun beam converging on to a prism, and unfurling in its bright colours.The flow is simple and friendly, the undercurrent deep and profound.The choice of words are smooth as silk and velvet.
    Talent attracts talent. The excellence and polish of the comments your blogs draw speak volumes.
    I hope this answers your question.
    Your book “Eclectic verses” is my constant companion on the desk. Each time i open a random page and scan a verse, i smell a different fragrance.It is not only a book, it is a bouquet of flowers.
    My hearty congratulations on the 4th anniversary of your blog.
    God bless you.
