An Azure Sky | #wordlesswednesday

“Home is not a place. It’s a feeling.”

Every time I look up, I yearn to find my home. Up there, somewhere, high above the ground, beyond the highrise and way above the clouds, into the infinite, where everything merges into the deep blue space. Somewhere there, probably, lies my home. It may be the reason why skywatching brings me so much comfort and warmth. Like a fuzzy feeling, that one can only feel within oneself but one that never lends itself to be expressed in syllables and words.

Have you ever felt like this with anything that you feel attached to, but one that lies beyond your immediate sphere of experience?

    I love the warm fuzzy feeling too that the skies have to offer. And the glorious sun with its all expansive energies. And the depth of a night sky with the serene moon. I would love to have an abode there too. 🙂

    Lovely to see you blogging actively. May the universe bestow upon you all it’s precious blessings, my friend. <3

    Love, light and laughter always

    I feel that way too about the sky – that’s why I love to look at it. Nice post.

    Sometimes when I see the sky from the window, I feel like eating a piece of it–all that open, and freedom. Beautiful post, Esha.

    I know I do feel something similar… my work schedule means I hardly get to even see the sun and barely even the sky before its gone dark

    Beautifully written thoughts! Yes, I can feel them echoing here!

      Thank you, Archana. Glad it does. Happy Friday and a wonderfully relaxed weekend to you!

    Aha! That’s a lovely capture and speaks volumes about your love for skies and its mosaic of myriad colors!!

      I like sky watching too.

      • Esha MD

        So glad you do, Ramya! Hope you get to enjoy many more such gorgeous skies from your part of the world!

        Thanks for joining us for our weekly blog hop this week. Here’s wishing you a Happy Friday and a wonderful weekend.

      Thank you, Shilpa! You are too kind, dear. Yes, I love the sky and keep sharing them a little too frequently, at times! But, I think, it’s okay, because a lot of people lead such busy lives nowadays that they hardly have the time to look out of their windows. Instead, they view the skies on their screens! Paradoxical, no?

    What a lovely one. Is that where you live, Esha? I love the sky and those sky scrapers. I clicked a lot in Hong Kong. I am excited to join this week. Got distracted and missed a few times.

    • Esha MD

      You’re right, Parul. That’s the view from the rear of the building where we now live. I loved your Hong Kong clicks and the lovely posts about life there that you used to share earlier! Bring them on, again. We so look forward to your travel clicks, Parul.

    I share the same feeling when I look at the sky. I love to lie down on the sofa placed next to the window and look at the blue sky with white clouds passing by. Doing this for 5 minutes calms down the mind. It is a nice click of a building against the blue sky. I have been taking photos of building structures (not the high rises ones) though they are all taken from the same angle. I will put them up for the next Wordless Wednesday post.

    • Esha MD

      Absolutely, Anamika! Mindfulness was never this calming as when one does it looking up at the boundless sky! I’m glad we share this too in common between us.
      Please dig out those photos of the buildings you’ve mentioned, (and just to let you know, any angle is fine, as long as you enjoy clicking them) and share them for the #ww blog hop. There’s something about the Georgian and the Victorian buildings of England that makes them so beautiful, especially the ones with bright-hued creepers growing on them.

    This is a beautiful click, Esha. You have expressed the feeling so well.
    I forgot to draft my wordless Wednesday post. Will do it soon and link up. 🙂

    • Esha MD

      Thank you, Vinitha! This is a picture of the new home. I am not a fan of high rises so every time I look up, I tend to look beyond and see the sky and the clouds gently floating by.

      So glad to see you stop by the blog and share your comments here. You’re welcome to join our blog hop any time that suits your schedule, Vinitha! Our linky stays open until Monday noon, so ample time there. 🙂

    Every time I am near the ocean. Very nice photo. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

    • Esha MD

      So, you’re a sea-lover! For me, it’s always the mountain that calls.

      Thank you for joining us and sharing your thoughts, Patrick

    I feel like that when I hear the sound of waves by the sea.

    Happy WW, Esha.

    • Esha MD

      That’s nice to know, Veronica. The sound of the waves lapping up against the shore always brings back so many beautiful memories. Happy #ww and a blessed weekend to you, too!

    I’ve experienced three total eclipses of the sun and they are intensely spiritual experiences. When the sun is total…you are put in touch with something way beyond daily experience, at least in the culture I belong to. I know many cultures have a totally different viewpoint of those events but to me, it’s the closest I’ve ever come to something unknowable.

    • Esha MD

      I hear you, Alana! It is hard to describe these intensely spiritual experiences but I can relate to your thoughts in some ways. Eclipses make me wonder at the mysterious ways of the universe and reminds me how small and insignificant I am in the greater scheme of things.
      P.S. Reminds me, we had a lunar eclipse two days back here.

    I lived most of my life by the ocean but now live landlocked by the mountains, so I always feel lost between both places.

    • Esha MD

      I can imagine that, Pat. I grew up amidst lush green mountains but now live in a bustling concrete jungle in a busy metropolis, at the other end of the country! In a very similar situation to yourself!
