Q. 1 Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?

Answer. Why not both? Go to a park, then shop and come back. 😉

Q. 2 If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

Answer.  One that fits no one! That, which can be used as a show piece for decoration at home. Why? We don’t wish to get soiled, but admired and handled with love and care. We don’t wish to get replaced in the long run. 😀

Q. 3 What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?

Answer. Locked out? Not a big deal. Break the lock! 🙂

Q. 4 Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? 

Answer. Not old enough to dislike nuts. 😀

Q. 5 Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Answer. Oxygen and Carbon dioxide for our survival so that we can exist in WordPress. 🙂

Morton’s Fork?

Good Bye

Morton’s Fork is an expression used for a dilemma, especially one in which both choices are equally undesirable. A Morton’s Fork is a specious piece of reasoning in which contradictory arguments lead to the same (unpleasant) conclusion. It is said to originate with the collecting of taxes by John Morton, Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 15th century, who held that a man living modestly must be saving money and could therefore afford taxes, whereas if he was living extravagantly then he was obviously rich and could still afford them. 

So, who is playing Morton here? WordPress?

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

Either way, we are the victim. If we were not able to write our blog, why would we even think of being here? On the contrary, why would anybody care to read our blog, if we do not play their audience. Guess what? It’s a Good Bye!

Human beings are balanced creatures. They need small doses of everything- good and bad, happy and sad, day and night, summer and winter, spring and autumn, love and hate, oxygen and carbon dioxide too! If we have the capacity to read and/or listen, we also keep the desire to write and/or express.

Flare

These concrete structures suddenly flared up! How?

A night view of Dehradun city, India.

There is a story behind this photograph. We were experimenting with our DSLR and tried to take a night view of this amazing place. Unfortunately we did not have a tripod and kept it on a flat surface. The camera adjusted itself producing the effect as seen above. Though it was a mistake we made, we love the effect of this mistake. We just could not delete it! And here we are sharing it with the world. WordPress has taught us, “Never regret, you can learn from everything and anything. and it’s a bet!” 🙂

Below are few more photographs of the sun that we tried to capture. Here a boom, there a boom, every where a boom boom! Enjoy!

Likeable Blog Justified!

Blog Posts

The Challenge: You have three hundred words to justify the existence of your favorite person, place, or thing. Failure to convince will result in it vanishing without a trace. Go!

Our favorite is our Blog! Here we go justifying the existence of Sia Positive. 🙂

Our previous post What’s so special about 1337 was a poem in response to Writing Prompt: Blogging 101 that expressed who we are and why we are here in WordPress. Just minutes before we came across this writing prompt, there was a notification saying we’ve received 1337 likes in our blog! This number left us scratching our head and we were motivated to come up with a post hoping to get answers to our question about this special number. We wondered, how many bloggers are aware of the significance of 1337? Guess what? No answers!

What next? You’re right! Google!

So we decided to Google. And what a coincidence! The Daily Post came up with yet another prompt, Do or Die! Could there be any better way to link this current post to this prompt? So, here we are justifying the existence of our blog. We are sure Sia Positive will not vanish but exist!

We came across several interpretations for 1337. But what we thought could be best related to this blogging world goes as follows:

Angel Number 1337 is a message of ‘congratulations’ from your angels and the Ascended Masters, as you have chosen the right course of action and are travelling well along your life path. Your clear connection with the angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters is ensuring a strong channel of communication and you are receiving Divine guidance every step of the way. Call upon the angels whenever you feel the need for help and support. You are encouraged to continue on your current path as the angels and Ascended Masters support you in your quest. 

Angel Number 1337 is a message from your angels that you are being commended and applauded for your efforts as your successes are inspiring and uplifting and you are helping and teaching others by being a positive example for others to follow.  You have listened to and heeded the guidance from the angels and are successfully serving your Divine life purpose and soul mission with wisdom, love, persistence and enthusiasm.  Allow the flow of positive abundance to shower down upon you as your creative energies have been activated and you are being asked to express yourself with joy and enthusiasm.

Angel Number 1337 indicates that your positive expectations, prayers and visualizations have set you on your course and ‘right’ life path.  Your angels ask that you keep up the great work and keep affirming positive outcomes.

So, are you convinced? 🙂

Depth of Life

Mountain n river- Bageshwar

 Dark is the absence of light,

Hate is the absence of love,

Death is the absence of life.

Rules and laws are made by us,

Situations change but rules never change!

Is it fair enough?

We punish the wrong and reward the right,

With the hope that wrong never prevail;

How far is this right?

If the world has changed,

Why do we still talk of change!

If we all are sinners, then who are we to judge?

We are not prisoners;

We do not need rules to live,

Then why can’t we take a risk,

And think positive!

Arrest hatred, arrest the furious mind,

Punish jealousy and greed,

Leave the negative behind.

Right or wrong, good or bad,

Are we not aware?

Feel the depth of life, far and wide;

Let peace prevail worldwide.

Depth of Field

In this post we share some of our photographs that we think would best fit The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth. We have chosen photographs that explains the Depth of Field.

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 Irony

Think Simple

This post is in response to Weekly Writing Challenge: Ice, Water, Steam.

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’.

So…

Simplicity is in the mind, not lifestyle,

Generosity is a quality divine;

Live your dreams, you have a lifetime;

Be human, spread the sunshine.

Good or bad is in the heart,

Show gratitude for what you’re bestowed;

How you live is a work of art;

Clean the soul for a heavenly abode.

Rich or poor, is in the mind,

If you are alive, you’ve to strive;

Think simple and just be kind,

If you’ve money, help others to survive.

Is it convincing?

It’s our dreams we try to connect!

Simple living and high thinking,

Does it make a man perfect?

The new word- ROBWOP

Robwop

…and the dream comes true!!

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.

Here are the questions for this week and our response to those questions that will give you more insight about us. Enjoy! 😉

Q. 1 Where did you live at age five?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

Answer.

Near or far, to follow our dreams, we plan to travel worldwide.

Q. 2 You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

Answer.

If we are Invited to a party of fascinating people we would never go to that party. Rather we would prefer meeting those people alone. 🙂

Q. 3 Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

Answer.

Growing up is part of learning, we admit it!

Small town or big, we lived our life and we liked it!
