“For the mind disturbed, the still beauty of dawn is nature’s finest balm” ;-)

After all that heavy duty posts…I thought of chilling for a moment..and guess what..my focus and determination was on this…picture!!!

“The paradox of reality is that no image is as compelling as the one which exists only in the mind’s eye.” ~ Shana Alexander

Its been long that I am trying to click this pic…and I wanted to surprise some of my Indian friends with this pic..!
Last time I had seen Manish’s pic standing in this field…and when I saw this over here in Cal, ‘sarson ka saag’ (Mustard) field….pranks started playing in my mind…that reminds a funny quote that I read the other day 😀

“The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they are okay, then it’s you.”- Rita Mae Brown

…and I said I have to get this no matter what!! :)! The other day I saw KL with her summer post and I thought she might bring this…but nah!!! …so here friends for you all…Mustard (sarson ka saag) field…right in the heart of silicon valley in California :D…boooh only thing is..its weed!!!!… lol

“Nature has perfections, in order to show that she is the image of God; and defects, to show that she is only his image.”
But its very difficult to get the pic as its a busy traffic zone…and this afternoon…I had an opportunity to get out for lunch…and this was my mission more than my lunch 😀

“Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission”

I love the yellow sheet thats laid on the green layers of the ground…nature is so loving..sometimes…even we forget to notice !!!

“Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
