In photography, Depth of Field (DoF) refers to the range of distance that appears acceptably sharp. In some cases, we may have the entire image sharp. In other cases, a small DOF may be more effective, emphasizing the subject while de-emphasizing the foreground and background. In cinematography, a large DOF is often called deep focus, and a small DOF is often called shallow focus.
The Challenge: For this week’s writing challenge, take on the theme of H2O. Just like water is still water, whether it’s solid, liquid, or gaseous, you are still yourself, whether you’re in the middle of a career change or identity shift. Hey, even dying your hair pink is just a different variation of you.
Whether we are rich or poor, we are what we think. Simple living is not what matters, simple thinking does.
“Simple living and high thinking” is a common adage we have been living with, right from our childhood. It is simple to understand, isn’t it? Live a simple life with the basic needs, have high aims in life and be happy.
What we perceived then and what we perceive now transmit vibes that are poles apart.
The irony: Everything is in the mind. The higher we think, the higher our hopes and expectations, and higher soars our greed. This ultimately lands one into a pit full of competition, jealousy and revenge. Over the years, experience explained, what actually matters is ‘think simple’.
Miracles happen when we let it happen. We’ve been scratching our heads from quite some time, long before we started blogging in WordPress, about Neologism. For those who are not aware, a Neologism is the name for a newly coined term, word, or phrase that may be in the process of entering common use, but that has not yet been accepted into mainstream language. Can we create a word of our own that would be followed by millions around the world?
Finally, we are here in WordPress today writing about a word we created. The new word is ROBWOP!
ROBWOP is a noun. It is a term used for an imaginary Robot whose sole job is to keep track of those ‘speechless expressions’ from every nook and corner of the globe waiting to be seen, heard, read, explored and felt. We are talking of the million posts in WordPress. Whenever you find yourselves lost in the pool of posts in WordPress, ROBWOP would come to your rescue. ROBWOP has a 10G internet facility for uninterrupted connectivity!
The history of this word dates back to August 24, 2014 when The Daily Post came up with a Daily Prompt You, Robot that asked to create a post on the robot that was handed to bloggers.
Food for thought: When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?
Whether we decide to let go or fight back; what matters is feel comfortable; because the soul is important, not the problem.
Set the mind free!
There cannot be just one answer to different questions. Similarly, the problems we encounter do not come with just one solution. At times, we need to fight back; while at other times we need to just let it go! If fighting back does not land us in comfortable situation, there is no other option but to just let it go!
There have been several instances in our life when, if we let go the problem, the solution seems to be just ahead of us; which otherwise was not visible when we were trying to fight back. That short break provides the needed energy and positive energy to fight back!
Fight back with positive energy!
Throw in the towel is a time when time needs to be given time.Time heals all pain and adversity. “Do not quit” would be too harsh on the heart and soul; if quitting is what makes us feel good! How else can we open doors to new opportunities if we never quit?
In any case, whether we let it go or decide to fight back, the fuel that keeps us moving is never regret. That calls for saying; we have to trust our decisions and keep the faith. There must have been some reason behind that decision we took. If Plan A didn’t work, there is always a Plan B. Create as many plans as we see fit! But just move on. This is how we learn. And living is a learning experience.
We love to capture different moments in our life and find it exciting to express our thoughts through these random clicks. We made an attempt to express our journey of life through these photographs. So, fasten your seat belts and enjoy this journey through our head and heart ! 🙂
1. Hunt for truth:
The oar as seen immersed in water has something to say!
Do not believe what you hear, do not believe what you see,
A smile on your face may not mean you’re free;
The actions we take are the reactions we face,
Do not judge, the truth lies beneath;
This is what we believe.
2. Surprises matter
Life is full of surprises, good or bad;
Never stop learning, happy or sad.
3. Solve problems
When faced with problems, do not complain;
Look for alternative solutions, take a concrete decision.
Few months back, we visited a Nursery to purchase some plants for our small but sweet garden. While we were looking around, this flower just happened to catch our attention. This amazingly beautiful flower looked somewhat like a ‘Rakhi’. For those who are not aware, Rakhi is a band tied by sisters on the wrist of their brothers on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.
We were utterly amazed to see a real Rakhi! As told to us by the florist, the local name of this flower is “Rakhi Bail”.
