Buddha - Illustration Friday

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.?
~ Buddha

I was not able to share an illo related to "hollow", but I loved the quotation so much and, so here is a painting of Buddha.

Illustration Friday - Shaky

A lot has been going on lately in my head. Things related to my career, my husband's career.
It ll be a tough ride to home and it might take some time before we settle. The two hearts are me and my hubby's. The third is my love for drawing.

Holi, also called the Festival of Colors, is a popular Hindu spring festival observed in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and countries with large Hindu diaspora populations, such as Suriname, Guyana, South Africa, Trinidad, the UK, Mauritius, and Fiji.

Holi is celebrated by people throwing colored powder and colored water at each other. Bonfires are lit the day before, also known as Holika Dahan (death of Holika) or Chhoti Holi (little Holi). The bonfires are lit in memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad had when Demoness Holika, sister of Hiranyakashipu, carried him into the fire. Holika was burnt but Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to his unshakable devotion.

SeaFlames - Illustration Friday - Unfold

The sea goddess reveals herself and her secret unfolds.
I could a tale unfold whose lightest word
Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood,
Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres.

Why are we happy - TED talk by Dan Gilbert

Whilst browsing through the videos on TED I stumbled upon this talk by Dan Gilbert on "Why are we Happy?"
Things have not always worked in my favor. I have not always got what I wanted, and when I complained, my friends and family told me that I am not the only one who is suffering. At that moment I felt like giving a punch in their faces. However now, in retrospect, I have come to realize, that they were not totally wrong, that it was not all that bad after all, and that I did get over things which troubled me.My brain helped me synthesize happiness in myself and changed the way I perceived certain things in order to achieve it. I "moved on" in simple words.
Here is the link to video
The video has influenced me in a good way. The next time I find myself in a state of dissatisfaction, because of an unfulfilled desire or need, I would know that it would not matter in due course of time. I will perhaps, move on with it faster, to try and fulfill something else.
