laddoos and goodbyes
Your writing and your art are simplistic and yet say all the things we think ourselves in a way that makes it seems possible for us to do it too. You make us feel that we could do that...we could record our lives, our thoughts, our feelings. You are an inspiration to everyone. And your recordings of your life in words and pictures will be a treasured keepsake for your family and an extraordinary memory for you, so much more than just a posted phone photo on social media. Very special...very touching...very beautiful...
This was very sweet. You’re an artist with words as well as images, and I like it when you tell stories. Also, does the coconut oil massage work if you give one to yourself? 🙂
Ah…this one brought tears to my eyes. One can feel the warmth and love of family, and the knowing and understanding that everything is ok at some level as we accept every moment as perfect.
This was so beautiful! It made me smile thinking of you enjoying your time with family. I love the way you write about life - instead of making me worry about productivity or work, you remind me that it's perfectly alright to take things slow and enjoy my life. Thanks for writing this,
These two interlocking pieces, this one and the one for your insiders, are beautiful. Really lovely work.
This was a delight to read, Nishant. Thanks.
Great read. A very touching portrait of your mother.
Nishant, I seriously cried (actually sobbed) as this evoked a lot of memories. You have captured the emotions with such simplicity yet with soul touching words. God bless you
This was so beautiful to read. I just had to say goodbye to my daughter who I hadn't seen for three years. She lives in San Francisco. It's heart wrenching. I loved what and how you write. Thanks so much.
This was so beautiful and sweet. Your regret at not doing enough with your mother, not taking time enough reminds me that it is those moments with loved ones that mean the most - not how much we can accomplish in a day.
As an urban and travel sketcher forever, I love your work. So intimate and personal. I have sketchbooks dating to 1972, and each sketch takes me right back to that particular moment. Bravo.
Beautifully poetic. The style of your drawings really adds to the overall charm. That head massage brings back memories from my own childhood.
