About

Hello... and welcome to my space in the blogosphere.

I am Kay -- a creative conjurer -- intuitive, inquisitive, imaginative.

Intellectual and creative pursuits transport me to new dimensions. Writing, DIY crafts, web/graphics designing etc. are just a few of the tools in my magical toolbox! Occasionally, I also like to cook. (Mind you, only "occasionally".)

Writing is my passion. I wield my words like a skilled swordsman, to win over hearts. Blowing tiny fireflies of hope, through casual conversations, into unsuspecting minds darkened with despair, is one of my several guilty pleasures! So yes, you can also think of me as "an eloquent enchantress" or "a colloquial conqueror". 😜😄

I am highly organised. More spiritual than religious. Love to learn new stuff.

In another life, I believed I was an alien. Now I KNOW that EVERYONE is, in their own unique way! 😄

In an even earlier life, I used to be an ENFP. Now, I am practically the opposite - an INTJ. (Those of you who are wondering if I have suddenly started talking "alien" - relax, this is just my Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator, and, in all probability, it will change again - I still have a long life ahead of me.)

Oh by the way, I'm also a proud #Potterhead! 😎

I prefer:

  • Tea over coffee.
  • Books over pubs.
  • Cozy movie nights over loud parties.
  • Jacob Black's mind over Edward Cullen's looks.
  • Smiles over "selfie-pouts"! 🤣🤣

Don't ask me to choose:

  • between beaches and mountains
  • one type of food over another
  • one favourite book
  • one favourite Avengers superhero 🤦

What turns me on:

  • Books, movies, music, sunsets, conversations and tea.
  • The sound of falling rain.
  • The smell of wet earth and crispy clean clothes. (Yes, I smell clothes before wearing them! 🙈)
  • The feel of gentle winds rustling through my hair.
  • A job well done.
  • Creativity, humour, honesty and transparency.
  • Warm and smiley faces. (What's with all the facial intimidation, people? Loosen up! 😜)

What turns me off:

  • Lies and hypocrisy.
  • Self-absorbed, pushy people.
  • Unnecessary drama and mind games.

That being said, I really won't judge your way of being if you don't judge mine. 🤷

So what's the story behind this blog?

Well, this isn't my first foray into blogging. That happened in December 2006, but I took that blog off the grid in December 2019, due to certain unexpected developments in my life. Realized more than 1.5 years later that a part of me was so *miserable* for not having a space to express!

Hence, this "second innings" -- i.e. my Mug Of Muse!

And what exactly is this Mug Of Muse ?

It is that mysterious part within me where all the MAGIC happens... the part from where all SOLUTIONS come, and all CREATIVITY... the part that loves and laughs and dreams...

It is the sparkle in my eyes, the questions in my mind, and ALL the ZILLIONS of possibilities in my heart...

It sings in the shower, and dances in the rain... and... it BELIEVES.

This little corner in the blogosphere *is* my Mug Of Muse!

What will you find here?

You'll find some snapshots of my world, songs from my soul, a few pages from the diary of my life...

You'll find:

  • some personal adventures and stories
  • my creative outbursts (in the form of scribbles, craft work, digital art & culinary experiments)
  • random moments captured "through my lens"
  • reflections of my mind... on the innumerable "mysteries" of the world!
  • occasional books and movie recommendations
  • regular dose of humor, inspiration & a whole lot of sunny vibes!
