Sparkle #205: Jazz It Up!

“If music be the food of love, play on.” ~ William Shakespeare Is there anyone on this planet who doesn’t identify with the power of music? Music is an art form which deeply touches your mind, heart and soul. Irrespective of genre and artist preferences, everybody has songs they turn to when they want to express a feeling, calm their minds or just relax and take a break! There are songs for memories both happy and sad, songs which can lift your spirits or put you in a thoughtful mood and songs which can describe your situation even when words fail. Music is a powerful medium that connects people and…

Sparkle #188: The Magical World of Rune Guneriussen

I recently stumbled upon the surreal art of artist Rune Guneriussen and can’t take my eyes off his dreamy installations. Rune uses everyday objects to create stories in the natural landscape of his hometown, Norway. These complex and time consuming installations are painstakingly created by hand, and the end result is installation art which looks like a magical painting. What I really like about his creations is the balance between real life and fantasy. The locations and structure of his installations has a mystical feel to them, making you escape into a fairy tale of your own. But the use of common objects immediately brings you back to reality.

Sparkle #176: Make your Monday Happy!

Happy Monday folks! I am not feeling very happy or excited this morning and could do with some sunshine to brighten things up. The year has started on a crazy note, a new job means lots of learning and hence most of my time is currently being consumed at the workplace. I admit that I have been neglecting the blog, my diet, my Yoga and I am also feeling guilty for not staying on track with my resolutions for the year. In short, my life is currently chaotic and chaos always makes me feel uneasy. I wanted to do a valentines post this week, but since I am…
