Hello - India
Hello. It's been a while! I've just returned from 2 months photographing in India. A long trip. It was hellishly hot, and the first three weeks were literally too hot to do anything. And I got Covid as well.
Photographically speaking, compared to my previous shorter trip to India, it was a bit of a let down. I just didn't find a lot of characters to photograph. However, I did get some I'm happy with in terms of documenting the range of people I saw there. I've included a selection in this post. One that I'm particularly happy with is the first image below - some sort of ritual going on in the holy waters of Ujjain.

Merang Mushroom And Ear Mushroom Pizza For Your Weekend
Hi foodies, greetings from me, today is a very special day. Where I will participate in community contests. This contest's theme is very interesting to me, and I and see it in the community. It feels like a busy time is impossible, but would you believe that yesterday I had free time all day. And I made the best use of my time by making something interesting here.
Thank you sirenahippie for inviting me to this contest. I don't have much time left, but I am very happy to be among you all in this theme. Pizza is one of the fast food foods that I like, but I rarely make this preparation at home in my daily life. However, the recipe is still neatly stored in my recipe list.
When I joined Hive in June 2021, I was in the process of trying to carve out some meaning for myself in life; and recommitting to a long-lost love: writing. I wanted to hold myself accountable to write more regularly. I had started a longer form piece the year before during lockdown, but had been forced to put the project on ice because of a shoulder injury. Once I started writing again, however, it wasn't long before my passion was reawakened and I started finding catharsis in the words that flowed from within. Writing short story fiction and poetry, and engaging with others, quickly became a deeply satisfying end in itself.

"Deep Impact" by Mimi Leder: When did a movie made you cry?
In terms of movies, the decade of the 1990s made lots of contributions in terms of great movies with great stories and great filmmaking. I think the 1990s is one of the decades of the golden age of movies. With that being said, there are lots of great movies from the 1990s and one of them is "Deep Impact". Deep Impact made such a mark that even today the younger generations are able to enjoy and marvel at the story and how Deep Impact was made.

Live a Little...
My life has been pretty much regimented since school resumed. So, I don’t have all the time on my hands anymore. I mean, even during the holidays, I wasn’t just lazing around, you know. But at least there was this form of spontaneity to it where I knew I could basically do what I wanted, throwing in new activities and plans that I certainly didn’t bargain for because there wasn’t a schedule that was going to be altered for that, you know.
So I got to school, and I’m living the whole life that’s stipulated for me there. No spontaneity. No chance to try out things or whip in something new or abrupt.
