Finding faces

This picture was shared on social media…

Can you see a face in the lake ?🙂

Here are some more faces

How many faces can you see now?

Feel free to trace some more…

Pareidolia (/ˌpæriˈdliə/,[1] US also /ˌpærˈ-/[2]) is the tendency for perception to impose a meaningful interpretation on a nebulous visual stimulus (so that one sees an object, pattern or meaning where in fact there is none).

Ref Wiki
Seeing familiar objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidolia. It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random information.
Face pareidolia seems to be a universal phenomenon.

Finding faces in the most unexpected places, may have an evolutionary angle of a need to seek familiarity in the wake of the unknown, for a psychological safety.
Or finding faces in the bonnet of a car that makes it look more fun, friendly & smiling.

Maybe piecing the possibilities together to make sense is an illustration in the illusion…
Whatever the case creativity of the human mind is infinite in its potential to conjure up endless possibilities out of practically nothing concrete.

In the ability to create abstract associations to integrate and create and merge a more meaningful interpretation for ourselves,makes it an art of limitless possibilities.

Love is the way!

Love is the way
For all of us
As each of us matters
Somehow  somewhere
We are all connected
In the infinite plan
And each of us
Need to become responsible
To make a meaningful  difference
For life to thrive than just survive
We need to be respectful
Towards each other
To gain & sustain the trust & faith
That makes the world
A better place to live in
For all of us
Love is the way!

Inspirations

A person never is bored when he or she is creating something,expressing oneself. Through art forms, painting, singing, writing,and whatever that connects deeply to oneself.

And thats the beautiful part, where one art inspires another as much as the self to explore more.

Light reflects light

Every moment that we choose to shine as bright as we can,

We begin to sense the lightness in the being.

In sensing the blessings of light

Light reflects Light!

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

Power of Silence



Power of Silence

Emanates in stillness
Between rest and movement
Between words and deeds
Between two spaces…

In the betwixt and between
Is the potency of potential
To emerge in creativity
Silence is full of movement…

There is movement
In the stillness
And stillness
In the movement.

Beyond the Illusions



What is, may not be
What you see, can be an illusion
The truth may be far from it.
All that you see, is not all.

What is all, is not what you see
Illusions of your mind can play tricks.
Beyond your preconceived beliefs
And judgments of perception.

There is a lot more than what we are
Our vision can play tricks.
So watch what you see, up close
And perhaps, you will see more…

A Message of Gratitude.

A Message of Gratitude.

5 years on Word press
A mighty task for me
To stay on, dedicated
To my writings.
But WordPress gives the canvas
To paint my words every day.
It encourages from the background.
Never in your face or intrusive.
But silently keeping tabs,
On every learning curve.
Rejoicing by a share
On every milestone
It has been a journey
Of many learnings
Along the way…

To my fellow writers & readers
Yes, I am no poet
Nor a writer by profession
I started on a lark
To dance with some words
To process my own thoughts
And give vent to my feelings
In a constructive and fulfilling way
And express I did
And continue to do, till date
With all my fellow writers
And readers, love, wishes & support.

We are an ever growing circle
Emerging through our words
In the sharing we have grown
We have eased into each other’s hearts
We may not see one another ever
But we have connected in mutual respect
Of each others creativity.
Though the power of words
Comforted and understood
Accepted and appreciated
One another in our own little ways.
For we all know the power of words
That, one heartfelt word can change a day!

Thank you all for being here and hoping for a joyful journey ahead together for us all.🙏🏼

You are enough!

As women we put off taking a stand

We may choose to stay on the shoreline

Too often we put off till tommorow

What needs to be done today.

Choose to chance the unexpected

Dare to dance with spontaneity

To dance is to be powerful enough

To express yourself as your self.

To be all you want to be.

Experience this power in you.

It is yours for the taking & sharing

Be happy, be you, today and every day!

Happy Womans Day’ today and every day to all the Women reading this.

On writing everyday!

Season’s Greetings to all my readers.

Today my post is a little self-reflective… it is on my own writings here on WordPress.

It’s certainly very nice to feel acknowledged. Especially by WordPress that I have published 450 posts in a row. It has been a beautiful journey so far.
And yes, I am hoping to keep writing more.✍

We all can write if we truly wish to. Often our writings are a reflection of our understanding of experiences in life. Writing regularly gives me a sense of contentment as well as a feeling of letting go.

Of late a regular reader pointed out to me how my posts have changed and diversified to touch many other topics of life and living.
Yes, it is true and I appreciate them for noticing and sharing this.🙏

At times I write immediately when I see or experience something that touches me. I must add that I feel as writers, every once in a while, we must deliberately try to break a set pattern… if we feel we are getting into a mould.

New topics give us scope to enrich ourselves to understand ways to break free from monotony and explore more.

Personally, I feel my writings have now become more spontaneous than before by simply writing regularly. I write on all kinds of things that mean something to me. I emote and express and hope to evolve for the better through my own writings. So for me, it’s a cathartic experience.

Thank you, dear readers, for reading & sharing my works and this journey with me and hope to continue seeing your words and reflections here on WordPress. And thank you as well for inspiring me with all your lovely reflections.

Lots of love and goodwill to you all!
Savvy Raj.

Transcendence of the Spirit and Soul

We are vulnerable beings
And yet in that vulnerability is strength
That resurrects us while unnerving us.

Beyond conflicts is the emergence
All transitions in time to the transcendence…
In spirit and soul.

Touching the nerve of truth.

Effortless grace

Effortless grace is visible in a dancer,

Who even in the dynamics of great extensions in flexibility

Can manifest great ease and subtlety.

Making Your Soul Smile


What is it that makes your soul smile?
What is it that gets you going in a jiffy?
What is it that makes your heart race?
What is it that feels like a divine plan?

What is it that connects ‘you to your core?

What is it that resonates to you?

What is it that feels just right to you?
You will know it all at the right time.
And once you do, just follow your path.
You will make your soul smile😇
