Landing…

Sweets and me!

Just as a white summer cloud, in harmony with heaven and earth freely floats in the blue sky from horizon to horizon following the breath of the atmosphere – in the same way the pilgrim abandons him(her)self to the breath of the greater life that…leads him(her) beyond the farthest horizons to an aim which is already present within him(her), though yet hidden from his(her) sight.                                                                                                                               Lama Govinda, The Way of the White Clouds

 

Two-weeks have officially gone by since landing back into my Brooklyn life – the return on Wednesday, November 23 was just in time for a delicious Thanksgiving meal with friends. Now two-weeks of western life – iphone, internet, my small old dog, the lose of my sweet old neighbor dog, my couch, hot showers, dinners with friends, home cooked farmers market pasta, wine, cheese, meat and of course office-work life. Reverse culture shock.

Arriving Friday, September 23

 

Please join me on the journey…landing back in Orissa, India on Friday, September 23, 2011. Join me in the coming weeks and months as I reflect and meditate on the friendships and villages that have burst my heart open from Raghurajpur to Dharamsala, India…

Celebration & Thank You!

Thank you all for coming out to celebrate & support my acceptance to Raghurajpur International Arts & Crafts Exchange! The online fundraiser continues as I approach my departure to India as well as my goal…thank you all for your generosity & encouragement!
