Hi! How are you feeling today? I hope you are feeling rested in your God’s graceful wills, whatever it is ….
Whatever situation (good or bad) has happened to you for which you have no clue about how it happened in the first place and then believe,
There lies God’s infinite hidden blessings. Trust.
Because God wanted you to walk through it. HE Himself has chosen you.
Remember your heart is taken care of The Almighty Himself.
If some doors are closed, then know that the door closing is not about your heart at all. It’s not to hurt you. It’s not to destroy you. It’s not to leave you stranded.
It is to protect your soul.
So no matter how bad or depressed or upset you are now, Always trust the process of your journey … and have complete faith in God’s Wills.
“We don’t know much about the soul. We can look at our bodies, feel with our hearts, comprehend with our minds. We can decipher how each is feeling, we can see their inclinations, weaknesses, movements.
But the soul is something else. We have not been given much knowledge about it. It is deeply connected to a world beyond this one.
And so only our Lord knows how best to protect it from straying.
Accept God’s protection when it comes. Accept that the closed door was Him telling you: your soul needs to go another way.
I get it. You’re exhausted from knocking on every door you come across, and never being let in.
But there is another door. Keep walking. Your soul is seeking it out.
You will be let in. You will be welcomed. You will be held.
And I promise you, you will finally rest.” – Ruquiya’s Bookshelf
I hope you are rested in your God’s graceful wills. Ameen
Dear All, I hope you are fine. I wish lots of positive energy, love and light in your life.
Let me start with a wonderful statement. “Grit is not just simple elbow-grease term for rugged persistence. It is an often invisible display of endurance that lets you stay in an uncomfortable place, work hard to improve upon a given interest, and do it again and again.” — Sarah Lewis
So tell me what you think about it.
This simple ‘Dreamy Abode’ greeting cards printed on ambush paper, a set of ten pieces are ready to dispatch to the kind buyer of my ‘Love & Light’ project, that means the total amount will be used to buy some child-friendly crayons and pastel colors and drawing copies and those will be donated as charity to well-deserved organisations who work unconditionally for the less fortunate one.
This time the ‘Love & Light’ things are going to Golden Kids Welfare Foundation (GKWF), Mirpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh. It’s an independent and non- profit organization committed to being a center of excellence in the treatment and education of children with autism.
You can be an honourable contributor as well.

It’s leaving my home for a sweetheart friend’s home ….
Nadia asked me why it’s titled as ‘The Murmuring Sound’ …..
I m consciously aware of the flourishing things at this moment of my life rather than many other distractions of day to day life…. The murmuring sound from a faraway land keeps whispering to me that there are some blessings getting my way now …
O God, when I listen to the voices of animals, the sounds of trees, the murmurings of water, the singing of birds, the whistling of the wind, or the boom of thunder, I see in them evidence of Your unity; I feel that You are supreme power, omniscience, supreme knowledge, and supreme justice. I recognize You, O God, in the trials I am going through. May Your pleasure be my pleasure, too. May I be Your joy, the joy that a Father feels for a son. And may I think of You calmly and with determination, even when I find it hard to say I love You.
I play every role in my Jian Bird Creates paintings and projects, and that’s what makes it so important for me. I literally put my heart and soul in it.
It’s not just hey I make it.
I work hours and days on a project/ artworks to ensure it’s perfect. I also go for other gallery visits for art experience, to get review from other art-critics… I make my hands and cloths messy with Colors (love it though)
So It’s not just hey I make it. It’s also about me painting it, making it, cleaning it, planning it, organizing it, packing it, edit it, reaching out, networking it ….
Handling almost everything myself in my small art and painting journey is not easy.
Overall with my painting you Observe a whole wide beautiful experience …
Darlin’, don’t quit your daydream It’s your life that you’re making It ain’t big enough if it doesn’t scare the hell out of you If it makes you nervous It’s probably worth it Why save it for sleep when you could be living your daydream?”
Daydream Song by Lily Meola
I did this painting late at night around 2 am in the morning and this song is so true … When certain words move people, they show how much power they have to make changes …
Be afraid, but do it anyway …..
I have given this painting this title, CHAOS. As a child I was forever daydreaming. As I grow older, I find chaos in fulfilling my daydreaming. Some days I win, and some days, I fail. However, I never lose hope and continue to daydreams. I don’t know whether it’s good or bad, but it does make me feel good and helps me mentally settled with all my daydreams and I keep moving as time and space drive me to eternity. I m sure to leave behind a legacy of grit and perseverance.
“My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.”
– Maya Angelou
Have you ever felt chaos in chasing your daydreams? I think that’s what it is always for most people …. What do you think?
This hug is so powerful that it’s given so tightly, yet so tenderly with all the care and affection that one feels for another, that it itself makes a whole lot difference without saying much words and you both deserve this Jaduu Ki Jhappi always.
Never miss to give it when your beloved needs it; Never hesitate to ask for it when you need it from her, your lover, your best friend …
Your Jaduu Ki Jhappi means the world to her, remember that.
Love your beloved like you never take her for granted, scold her if she is not taking care of her, pamper her like a little girl, protect her as you are her only bodyguard, hold her like you will never let her go❤️ –
“Jaduu Ki Jhappi” says all of these and more to the lovers …
So tell me Have you given Jaduu Ki Jhappi to your beloved today?
I have visited places to see you, feel you, articulate you in my own way. The more I see you, the more I fall in love with you. Some make it complicated and some make you so simple. You are instilled with so many stories of different people. And different people see you with their different perspectives, with their own stories. It fascinates me. It doesn’t matter to you if you are old or young. You know only to encompass yourself to infinity. You do not hide. You are open for all. Some feel you like home. Some treat you like strangers.
Dear Art, You are not stranger to me. You are like home to me. I do not like to describe you much. You come to me as a beautiful surprise each day. You bring rainbow colours to explore my universe. I rest in you silently nurturing a world full of wonders. I feel pure.
Dear Art, Do you know you make me shimmery, trembling, softly, from within?
I struggle to convey in words What I want to say to you ..
I talk to you every day You may not hear me Word by word; But you already know it all, I know …
You remain so quiet … Day by day you are becoming quieter (Oh! How I hate it!) It seems that you want me to Remain quiet too … Cause all these chattering May make it messier between us And I can see that too …
Sometimes I think I will stay quiet … May be, only then I’ll be free from My struggle to say it all To you.
Have you ever experienced such inexpressible moments to express yourself in your life?
Have you seen her cheeks lately? How can you see? You remain so busy! Now a days the busy hours have increased a lot Even you forget to give her The one you have taken from her ….
Have you seen her cheeks recently? How can you see? Why would you have time to look? You have a job to do with your life and then it’s all going well for your life, you think! Your life is quite fine even without seeing her at all …
Have you seen her cheeks just for a while? A glance? See, what she has done to her! As if there is no one in the world without you, no one … Her mind is not in the worldly affairs also. She spends her whole day sitting beside the window, Waiting for you … Sometimes she even thinks she’ll go straight to the grave without showing her cheeks to you!
Have you seen her cheeks for a moment? Do you remember how you loved the colours of spring on her cheeks!! Remembering this the tears roll down her cheeks now …
Now when you see her again (if you have time) You’ll wonder How you have forgotten the form of her cheeks in the moonlight! Now if you see her once, you’ll be in love touching her cheeks again … soft and angelic .. You’ll be the breeze to her cheeks …. She will smile with dimples appear on the ends of her lips. Bringing back the colours of spring on her rosy cheeks, once again ….
Wonder how you bring the vibrant colours of spring on your loved ones’ cheeks ….
“Behind the hum and routine of daily living, there lay a persistent and wild longing for something she could not easily put into words. It felt like impulsive adventures and watching the sun rise over unfamiliar mountains ….
The truly heartbreaking part was that she could feel the remaining days of her life falling away, like leaves from an autumn tree, but still this mysterious person who held the key to unlock her secrets did not arrive; they were missing, and she knew not where to find them.” -John Mark Green

I treasure my painting moments …. What are your treasured moments?
Wake up early morning … Watch the beautiful sunrise … You can watch it from your small or big balcony or rooftop (if possible or you prefer) Or just from your window …
Sit and feel the breeze on your cheeks … Contemplate … Smile … keep smiling 😃 Oh! I forgot to say … Can you please sit with a glass of warm water with honey and কালিজিরা (black cumin) in it? (Or you like a cup of tea early morning? I don’t know about you) They say it’s good for health if you can have the warm water with honey and black cumin in the early morning of everyday … Write something … Read aloud for a while …
Stretch your body … Make your bed nicely … And say, ‘Thank you bed for a wonderful warmth that I felt from my last night’s sleep on you! You are so very kind!’ You can blow a flying kiss to it 😘
(You want to go for a walk Early morning? I don’t know about you. But if you go for an early morning walk, It’s all good … )
Now start the day.
Heyyy, don’t forget to take a long shower (If you are not in a hurry though; See, I don’t know about you)
Finally, be grateful for the day, pray … For you are alive, breathing! Every new day is a new beginning …
Byeeee for now 😊
What are your morning rituals? Let me know please.
⁃ Then try not to hurt me. And why are you determined to hurt me? Do you need time? To think?
⁃ Okay. I asked you to go on a trip with me but why haven’t you replied? What’s with that look? This is boring. Forget it.
⁃ Have you ever lied in your life?
⁃ I don’t lie. But to be truth to you I have lied when I was little.
Oh, wait! I guess I’m lying right now?
⁃ The fact that you still haven’t given me an answer about going on a trip together is really getting on my nerves right now. And I’m honestly a little hurt. But I’m acting like I’m fine, so I guess that counts as a lie. Heyyyy, why are you laughing? If you don’t like me that much, let’s just end it here.
⁃ You can’t just thoughtlessly trust someone when they haven’t done anything to gain your trust. We are not kids.
⁃ You have a point. Right!
⁃ Let’s go on a trip.
⁃ What? But I didn’t do anything to gain your trust.
⁃ You did.
⁃ Just now. You told me you don’t lie. That’s good enough.
Find me Before the mountains crumble. Find me Before I m lost.
How often do you feel lost, lost in translation of your feelings and emotions?
This street photography was taken by me, Downtown Brooklyn, April, 2022. Apart from the whole girly face image, I loved the collage of a bird at the bottom left. Do you love taking photographs while just walking the roads? Do you observe things and people around while on the street? Do you contemplate in midst of crowd? Can you find quiet time with yourself even when you are with people around? Just asking! I’m curious to know you 😊
