Homesickness & beyond: Life in a foreign country.

I happen to feel like that every now & then, specially when i have quite a few pending tasks but zero motivation to do anything. Since last few days i haven’t been able to sleep or focus on anything, haven’t been able to gather my thoughts either, something that i never had issues with. Everything around me and inside me seems vague, superficial and disheveled. I haven’t felt so uncomfortable inside than i have in the last few days.

Wildflowers and Sunny days: My plans for this summer.

Yellow Kala cotton dress/kurta: The Indian Ethnic co. Textile Gajra/Hair accessory: Pure Ghee Designs Flower Basket/ Planter: Amazon   This post is partially an ode to the long sunny days we have been waiting for to come by ever since spring arrived, and partially an ode to my favorite pastime which is walking around open fields and picking up wildflowers. More specifically then, an ode to sunshine and warm temperatures and the ability to enjoy & capture the simplicity of life that lies in such moments. Since photographs lasts longer than the flowers themselves, I feel these moments are worth documenting since these are small yet significant things that bring immense happiness in our lives. Feeling an extreme sense of…
