Hello Beautiful Creatures,

Connecting with Nature by Anushka Dhanapala

Connecting with Nature by Anushka Dhanapala

Just a quick post to let you all know that I have moved over to my new website http://www.anushkadhanapala.com I’m looking forward to getting into my blogging grove and seeing where this new space might lead.

I’m still in the process of perfecting it. But lets be honest, there is no such thing as perfection. At least in my world.

Finding my Creature still sings to my soul and you will see a lot of elements of it in my new online time capsule. As for my old space, I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets revamped and reshaped into a something new. You never know where the magic of finding ones creature will lead.

Please come and say hi. I look forward to hearing about your journey and discovering new blogs along the way.

Love and light,

Anushka xx

Hello lovely creatures, just letting you know I have ventured into the world of Goodreads. It’s such a wonderful way to keep track of all the books I want to read and an even better way to keep track of the books I have read and forgotten about. Would love to connect with those who have it, because there is nothing I like more than peeking into bookshelves, even virtual ones.

The downside to Goodreads is that it may, or may not double up, as a procrastination outlet. Of course one discovers these gems when submerged in the depths of revision and deadlines. Timed sessions it is.

To give you a bit of an update about what is happening around here, I will be posting regularly every Monday and Thursday. Blogging has been a great outlet to help connect me with many wonderful people and also doubles up as a fun side-project away from the WIP. So expect to see more creature presence around here as well as guest posts and interviews with inspiring creative artists.

Feel free to share your Goodreads username/link in the comments. If you are reading anything that is taking your breath away let me know, because I am always searching for those stories with the power to haunt a soul well after the last page has been turned.

Love and light,

Anushka xx

Grasping Our Potential

Grasping Our Potential by Leah Johnson

Photography is developing into a great love of mine and I enjoy the new dimension of my soul it represents. By no means am I an expert, but I do strive to be at a level where I feel comfortable capturing moments exactly how I see them in my head. During my travels I discovered something interesting about myself as a photographer, I love capturing people over wildlife. I also loved capturing forgotten and incomplete things – like the skeletal remains of sunken fishing boats or a broken birdcage – anything that stirs a story within me. Yes birds are beautiful, so are flowers and incredible landscapes. However, it’s the stolen moments immortalized forever in a photograph that I love the most as well as the eerie echoes of something long forgotten.

The visual stories send chills down my spine.

I want my writing to reflect that too.

Love and Light,

Anushka xx
