I wanted to create so many things: a book of poetry, a woman’s story and also a vehicle that can visually transport the reader to various situations of the woman’s life through images. I wanted to write something that poses questions, confronts our sorrows and yet alludes to answers and certain clues to living with hope, and if not happiness, an inner joy and enlightened existence. This book was the result.

The Forsaken Muse, a Woman’s Journey from Sorrow to Hope takes you inside a woman’s world as she struggles from despair, sadness, travail and self-examination to finding hope, growth and her own destiny. This is a book of poetry with passion, and a collection of beautiful photographs and drawings. All poems are beautifully illustrated by original photography which I meticulously hand-picked and produced in collaboration with some Bubblers. This book is for women, and therefore also relevant to men.

“Every woman has a story of survival. They sometimes stumble, but they rise up to redeem themselves for the sake of loved ones, or even for their own dignity. They could be crushed, shaken for awhile but never defeated. They have their scars and wounds, but they are survivors, they are victorious and prevail at the end.” ~ The Forsaken Muse ♥♥♥

Pink Panther Magazine Group Mesage about the book

Facebook Page of the book_

Thanks for visiting my site…Thanks too for all your Bubblemails and encouraging comments:-) I really love the RB community-it is safe, encouraging, supportive and a great place for collaborating.

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.

I love life, poetry, creativity, philosophy, photography, my God, dogs, friends, dancing, yoga, loving, writing, reading. I do consulting as my day job. And of course, I love the moon (that’s why am moonlover), am a nocturnal creature in the sense that I love the night’s solitude, the moon’s calming effect & the stars & the awesome feeling they give when I look at them. I am happy to collaborate with other artists- my work usually is a product of collaboration. I specify this as credit in my write-up.

I love creativity evoking passion, emotion, freedom, peace, the ability to live and do something good for humanity. I am passionate about women issues and social justice. I love to encourage people, and am so interested in listening to people’s stories.

I write – sometimes dark, sometimes hopeful, sometimes sad, joyful, wistful, but always attempting to express deep emotion. I am a woman but so much a child at heart.

On Transition, Changing Jobs, and Moving On

We usually spend a lot of energy thinking about ‘changing’, whether it be jobs, homes or for some, even relationships. When we finally get around to changing, whatever it is, it is never easy…the comfort and certainty of the familiar is difficult to leave, and we start to think as to why we wanted a change in the first place. You take risks when you change, and hopefully, have u…

The Matrix is Coming!!! (Let's be aware...)

Some Food for Thought ~ They say ‘Life imitates art, the same way art imitates life’. Don’t you think the movie ‘The Matrix’ is starting to be like ‘life’? Cyberspace wars, friendships, you can unfriend someone on FB, buy most things on the net, wage a war on the net, some people have ‘relations’ of all sort on the net, funds transfer, educati…
