The irony

They who have put out the people’s eyes reproach them of their blindness. John Milton.



“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”-Steve Jobs 






Success and Failure

“I will convert every situation of life into success because every success and failure is state of mind only……..”

Beautiful words of Rumi,

Love is the bridge between you and everything.
~ Rumi

Whenever, you feel something wrong which is sign of love. Than, you must have creativity, passion, intellect, positivity, innovation and optimistic approach towards life, otherwise you don’t have feeling of love. Today, I met one person, who taught me, one of the interesting lesson, because he really fall in love.

Lover (Him), “Omer, I will convert every situation of life into success because every success and failure is state of mind only. First of all, I will put my all efforts to make that project successful and after all possible efforts, if project sacked then I will convert that project into project development training session.

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing.”…..


I believe that some people either may be purely evil or are influenced by evil to the point of control. I don’t believe that tragedies of this type are caused by misunderstood people who had a tough childhood. There’s more to it than that.

Philosophically, evil may be a force of its own, or may merely be a void where goodness has been denied a place.

When we see people doing “good” we see them helping others. We see that they don’t place their own wants, fears, needs and beliefs ahead of everyone else. They place others at least on par with, if not above themselves.

The ultimate example, of course, was Jesus.

There is a quote, often attributed to Edmund Burke, which says, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing.”

After each senseless tragedy we take measures to…

A quilt doesn’t necessarily have to cover a bed anymore…

A very good friend of mine is a quilting and fiber arts enthusiast/hobbyist, and she leases studio space at Studio 107, in Martinsville, VA.  This past weekend, I drove up to their open house to see her latest accomplishments, get some ideas for Christmas gifts (and yes, there were a few buys), and possibly take some photos around town.  After taking the studio tour and meeting several of her fellow artists, we ventured over to the Piedmont Arts building to view the magnificent quilt-works by members of the Virginia Foothills Quilters Guild.  (Coincidentally, the Studio 107 group is currently presenting some of their artwork at the Memorial Hospital.)

Here are a few quilts from the following artists: Tone Haugen-Cogburn, Judy W. Loope, Betty Blessin, and Judy Poindexter.
