"EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS REAL." ~ PICASSO

about

PrettyPinkPebbles is a theory of simplicity where you consciously gather a handful of things or experiences that make your living truly worthwhile. Right from the art in your house, to what you read, to the people you invite on the table of life, to music you listen to, or what you eat, or simply how you stretch. It is about keeping your footprint small and being mindful about your choices to live a life that is like a night walk in a beautiful scented garden, that smells of love and endless possibilities.

 

My intent is to give back everything I receive from nature, and put the energies back into the rhythm of the universe.

Hello! I’m Ana, an artist, writer, design professional, and a sivananda yoga teacher living with my loving husband & son in Gurgaon, India. The process of creating art & writing offers me an opportunity to document my observations about life as I see them and experience them.

From thoughts on keeping your footprint small, to philosophies about Art and Creativity lets explore the world of art, the serendipities of heart, and the traditional yoga values to imbibe in us the Art of Life and the Calm of Life.

        It is a selfish move..Heard somewhere more love one sends out, much more one receives in return.

    Life is all about balance. good is because evil is. we can only hope to live in an ideal world where everything is good, but we must embrace the evil around. Life is what we make of it.

    Thanks for visiting my site.
    I see that you are from the Ad,.industry.
    What are your views on the Ad Industry’s copy writing, which, it seems to be, consists of twisted facts, blatant lies,all couched under Creativity and ‘service to the Client’.?
    And cheap exploitation of women by portraying them as a piece to be enjoyed..?

      Hi there!

      The sarcasm in your comment made me smile.

      Please be kind to ad folks. People do any thing to make a living. They are just writing copy. And some of them are doing a great job there. Lets try and see the positive.

      Besides that, the buyer today is very informed and very smart. He knows what he is buying.

      And as far as objectifying women is concerned I totally detest that, be it Advertising or Bollywood. Although I must say it was a pleasant surprise to hear anger in a man’s voice regarding the same. We still have hope.

        Sarcasm was unintended.,sorry.
        Point this people who can make a difference towards knowledge by the power of pen , might consider doing only what is good.
        However you have a point as one has to make a Living.
        Yet the moment we shirk our responsibilities, we contribute to the ills we often decry.
        Having said that , is that not the way Life is?
        Regds,
