Responded to Dear Luisa. But it was long enough for me to convert it to a Reblog with those words.

‘My Dear Luisa, like Most of those I know, for me a painting is a picture. All I have seen about them was Pretty, or not! Thus Your analysis of this painting is a lesson for me. Thank You for this!

On the other hand, the thought of the Annunciation brings to my mind Many thoughts, particularly about Free Will!
Why did Gabriel approach Our Lady for this? But wait, Did he? …Had he approached Only this particular Lady in History? Then Her ‘Fiat’ need not have been so celebrated. That it is, proves that the Invitation had been sent to more than One, that Being the Mother of Christ was Not forced upon Mary!’


words and music and stories

Today, 25 March, nine months before Christmas, the Christian Church celebrates the Feast of the Annunciation (Lady Day), which commemorates the visit of the archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary, during which he informed her that she would be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

The Annunciation has been one of the most frequent subjects of Christian art and a lot of works on the subject were made by great artists such as Sandro Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Lorenzo Lotto, Caravaggio, Duccio di Buoninsegna, Jan van Eyck, and Murillo or the frescos of Giotto or Domenico Ghirlandaio among others.

L’Annunciata –The Virgin Annunciate, by Antonello da Messina (1430 – 1479) is an oil painting probably made around 1476 and housed in Palermo.
This unusually simple depiction of Mary is a bit enigmatic and truly innovative breaking up the traditional composition of the Annunciation scene.

How to have Everything!


…Many, many years ago, when I was praying that my youngest sister get married, – it all depended on money, in India, weddings mean money, especially for a Girl, – Dowries are needed, and We are a poor family, …I got what I would call a message from God:

“You take care of my family; and I will take care of Yours!”

…I was in the seminary at that time, so started concentrating on my studies, and thinking and praying on what I could do for suffering Mankind. I can even say I stopped praying for my sister, EXCEPT for One very small prayer for her every day.

…She got married into a Very good family; am Very Happy, and I literally have More than I need.

…Do look up Matthew 6:33. It says, in effect:

Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, …and All the Rest will Fall in Line!


An Old Hindi song and Thoughts.


This song, from an OLD Hindi film, Dhool ka Phool, meaning a Flower in the Dust, says: ‘(My Child), You shall become neither a Hindu nor a Muslim. You are the Child of a Human being, and Shall become a Human Being,’ sung by a man who found an Abandoned Child.
It has been sung Very Well and Soulfully by this young man. Kudos to him. …Those who know Face Language would have noted that the boy’s face reflects the sufferings of his Community, as do the faces of the Others that We can see.
Coming to Religion: Two points.
There cannot be More than One God, and,
No (True) Religion teaches one to Hate others.
Bad religion is presented by religious teachers who do not know their subject Well, and are interested in Money, Name, Fame, etc.


Cats are teaching us something!


Cats, and Patricia, and a person called Haruki Murakami!


Light Visuals and Deep Thought.

As I had written to her:

EXCELLENT, my Dear Patricia! And the Cats giving the example, Magnificent! Kudos, my Dear!


Be My Mirror – A Reflective


This is Good!…Though had never thought of standing in front of mirrors for reflection…

These lines are Deep:

‘There is anger and negative energy everywhere I look. While looking at this may occur without choice, the choice, however, remains solid that I can still choose to look away–to look, but not see. I can also choose to see only that which brings me light. That which feeds good. That which breeds God.’

May we all Look like that.

Beliefs: Real and fake

Very Good one, this!
“You are who you are.” – From the post.


Some people spend days, years even a lifetime “searching for themselves”. I say STOP. You are just wasting your time. There has never been a greater lie. You are who you are. It is inside you. Who you have always been. There is no question to have. It is who you were since the very first day you were born, who you were when you were a kid, as a teenage, as a adult… It doesn’t change. Sure we grow up, we mature, we learn, we correct some things, but ultimately, it is still you. Still the same person who wakes up every morning, with those beliefs, those values, those goals, those passions.

It is always you. You haven’t changed, you are still you. So stop finding excuses for your lame self and start becoming your better self. Your real self. You might need a big slap in the face…
