Muse with Coffee – A Book Blog

Archive for the ‘inspiration’ Category


In addition to writing and reading, one of my favorite musings is listening to Music… any music that lifts up the mood, brightens up the day and inspires. Music is truly the food for the soul, with its universal language of unity, crossing all boundaries and feeding positive energy and happiness in one’s life.

I loved this new beat – Music that I found while surfing YouTube. Today, therefore, I am posting the YouTube link to this Musical beat — hope you enjoy! Have a nice day everyone 🙂

A big Hello and a warm Welcome to everybody visiting this blog in the summer of August and beyond.  It has truly been a while since I have updated this personal blog of mine. Reason? Since many of you know by now from the content of my blog that I am an author and a poet, so I am involved in writing projects most of the time. However, being involved with this blog and writing down my thoughts here, lets me feel connected to my friends and visitors who visit this blog at their own leisure. It feels wonderful to be a part of such a vibrant and diverse community of bloggers and writers who offer words of advice, information, knowledge and a little peek into their exceptional talents and works. So, I salute all my friends and visitors of this global diaspora for the talents and the enthusiasm they possess.
Of late, I have been travelling to various natural locations, and searching for themes to write my next Ebook, which would be my 2nd Poetry Ebook that would be released very soon in the coming months . I like to experiment with various themes in poetry, and currently fantasy, realistic and speculative themes and story telling have caught my fancy. So, you can expect to be in a world of fantasy realms and at the same time find your feet on the realistic grounds of life in my next Ebook.

Presently 2 of my Ebooks have been released. One is a short story collection named 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life which is a contemporary fiction inspirational and intriguing read.

The second Ebook is named MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life
and you can see the Ebook cover image at the top of this post.

What is so special about this Ebook? Well, first of all this Ebook contains a collection of 41 poems and 1 article which draw their inspiration about the themes from Nature, friendship and Life.

Tell me, how do you feel when you happen to walk through a vast green field, full of wildflowers, dandelions, tulips with a pleasant breeze under a blue sunny sky? Do you love nature? Do you yearn to sit under the shadows of giant trees and just pass your time leisurely and feel the essence of Mother Nature around you?

In the materialistic world of today, these thoughts and feelings may be a distant dream. But, I believe that connecting ourselves at least once in a while with Mother Nature could just do the trick of healing us from within, and bestow us with renewed enthusiasm and energy to see life in goodness and face life as it is and how it is.

My book MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life which is available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Apple iTunes, Sony, Diesel and Kobo stores tries to take a peek into Nature’s miracles, her beauty, and into the depths of vivid imagination. A few words and lines of happiness, love, and respect for Friends and Life. The Ebook is colourful with a splash of original nature photographs taken during my travels to a diverse number of locations across Europe.

If you would like to know more about my Ebook – here is the SPECIAL OFFER for you:

Throughout AUGUST until 2nd September 2012, MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life will be available at Smashwords Stores for only $0.99 i.e 99 cents by using the Coupon code DU75H.

I am very happy that my Ebook has found its worthwhile place in the hands of interested readers who have chosen to not only read, but also review this Poetry e-book at their own choice.

I would like to highlight one of the reviews here on this blog, which has also moved me. I encourage interested readers to review my book once you read it, as it will inspire me to pursue and publish more diverse works of poetry in future.

Here goes the review :

Review by: Jeff Dawson on Aug. 07, 2012 :  star star star star
The first poem Myth of Urvi is guaranteed to please the followers of Tolkien and others. It is the first mythical one I have ever read. I would definitely target the younger crowd to draw attention. Very nice.

The rest of the works paint a wonderful adventure through life. We’ve all felt the emotions as we travel through our journey of life. Very well done.

Almost forgot, I enjoyed the smattering of pictures through the work. They helped set the tone and allowed for reflection.

I found few personal favorites: Dear Friend, Do not Change, The band of Friendship and last but not least, A child in you. This one reminded me of my dad. He passed at 84 but up until his departure he always had this childish gleam in his eyes. I believe it was his view of life (to never grow old) that kept him surrounded by great friends and company. He is missed.

Thank you for the wonderful thoughts.

The question which has raised many eyebrows  who are interested in reading this book is — What is so special about this book?

I would say — My current book 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life is a novella, a collection of 12 short stories . It is a work of fiction with a touch of adventure, drama and inspiration from life, with a little dash of supernatural element thrown in a few of the chapters. It is a collection of 12 short stories that would take you into the fictitious, yet an intriguing world of the characters each of whom have a special story to share with you. 12 people have their paths crossed with a common friend-the protagonist. Somehow they reveal a few secrets to her and their lives change forever. Do their lives change in a good way or a bad way? How is their common friend affected?

Each story brings in front of you a gradual unraveling of their characters and why they are so special to the protagonist. When you read the stories, I think you will realize the underlying message from each story, which have an amusing, and an interesting tale to tell. The book is a short read, and if you want to relax on a summer’s day, or on a weekend with a short, riveting read, try out 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life.
Now a few words about my favourite character in the book 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life: My most favourite character is the lead protagonist in this book, who is an ad manager and a freelancer named Anita Maher.

Anita is the common friend of the 12 characters who bump into her so suddenly, and their secrets begin to unravel gradually. Anita is always enthusiastic about a new find, she holds special moments close to her heart and is always in search for uniqueness and has a never give up attitude. A free-spirited person, she hates being tied down, and is ready to learn from the events taking place about her and exudes a mix of various emotions. I found her to be the perfect protagonist for my book.
