Erika’s three questions for me:

Who has been the starlight in your life?

At every stage of my life, the starlight has come from my family. at first, my parents, and brother, and since meeting him, my Hubby Dearest, and my children have been the lights in my life. Without them, I feel darkness, and feel thankful everyday that I have them all in my life!

What is your biggest dream and how are you working on its realization?

This is actually a really hard one, I don’t have any BIG dreams as such, I am so happy with what God has given me… but Hey, I would love to finally finish my children’s book, and my Chic (Pea Curry) Lit book, and actually do something with it!  Its just a time factor.  My other dream was to work with children, and that has already been realised.. Now its just to get the recognition for doing the work that I do, and hopefully doing it well!

What do you want to leave here on earth?

I hope that, if nothing else, people remember my message, which, if you red my blog regularly, will know is to stay positive, and smile!  There is hardly anything in this world that can’t be made to seem at least a little bit better, with an upwards turn of your mouth! And if you think positively, find that silver lining, you will always feel happy!

My nominees!

This was actually really hard, there are certain blogs, already nominated, who I would have chosen, hands down, and many more besides these 6… but I did my best!

    Congratulations Ritu and thank you for nominating me again 🙂

    Now I shall answer your question :
    1. Tell me the inspiration for your writing, your blogging. Who or what moves you?

    I am doing blog for appreciation of what I have done so far in my life and it could be said also as a replacement for my future carrier. I was a BlackBerry themes developer back then and trying out other platform as soon as no more themes for the newest devices. No luck still but here I come to the world of blogging. I meet wonderful friends too here and thinking if I could make my blog as something that could replace any jobs, being alive here, and also my whole entertainment at one.

    Where would you ideally like to be, to view the stars? ( I love looking out at the night sky, watching the twinkling start…!)

    I like to capture a good photography of stars one day. Probably at the villa at the top of mountain. I am imagining a telescope besides me while holding a camera standing at the second floor balcony.

    What would you like your biggest life achievement to be?
    I would like to be successful, rich and to help people. Doing anything that I like 🙂
