Of Paintings & Handstands

Let me just pretend that it's easy peasy. That it didn't take me a year to get my handstands straight, atleast a hundred jumps before my feet could hit the wall, that I had a hard time washing my face because my arms were all jelly. I probably should buy a wooden spoon and attach it to my elbows, for days like these when I go crazy over inversions :P

So in short, last week was pretty exciting. I now have all my favourite inversions in line ... Tripod Headstand, headstand and handstand. 


This wasn't the only new thing that happened last week. I have started Painting (yeah this blog is becoming bizarre every passing day)... it's childish and totally immature and I don't even have any original ideas ... but I finally bought some inexpensive art supplies from Kmart and started it. All this to decorate my new room. I am going gung ho over Pinterest and Paints and interior decoration.



On Saturday I gathered few of my friends and did the famous Spit to Manly Coastal Walk, which is about 10km in distance. Stunning views, fitness and a wonderful time spent with friends!!


So how was your week?

  1. I absolutely love the paintings! I am woefully useless in that department and am in awe of those who can bring colours to life so easily. As for the headstands, I am just going to say 'wow' and move on. No way can I do that if I tried for a 100 years!

  6. Oh God! How do you manage these headstands? Tell me you are superwoman, aren't you? ;)

    The paintings are wonderful, Rajlakshmi...A woman of so many shades, that's what you are and superwoman too :D

  7. These paintings are exceptional Rajlakshmi. You shouldn't say "I have started painting." Instead, an "I've become a fabulous painter" is more apt.

    P.S. I'm working on shirshasana too. Should be able to do it in a couple of weeks :)

  8. Wow ! A headstand. That is impressive. Recently I started yoga on a daily basis and I admire how you are able to do every asana to perfection. Great job on that.

    Your paintings are awesome and can't wait to see how they light up your room. Do share pics when it's done.

  10. Wow, Raj! The paintings are simply amazing! Marvellous job there, young lady! And, as I told you, I am your fan in the Yoga department! I, too, began Yoga around 6 months ago, and it feels rejuvenating after an hour long workout. The Sun Salutations are my favourite, and I, too, could feel my arms turning to jelly when I began doing all the exercises! But, I keep reminding myself - no pain, no gain!
    Cheers to you, sweetie! Keep going!

  16. Hey Raji.

    As always your work is splendid. What can you 'Not' do actually? An amazing talent.
    I can never paint, so I am awestruck by people who do.

  17. If those paintings are to be called childish and immature then I should drown in chullu bhar paani for my art and craft skills. The last photo is serene.
