1 I just want to say how much I loved teaching and teaching peace is surely the most important thing we could all do…….
2 This is a delightful combination of colour, music and creativity. (Photo not mine, sent to me via Fb.)
Creating makes me happy, be it cooking a meal for family or friends, knitting or sewing clothes for little people, writings of various sorts, designing in the garden, playing music …….
3 These are the powder colours which I bought from a beautiful girl in Varanasi, India, on our way back from watching the sun rise over The Ganges. She made lovely patterns on my hand with them before we negotiated a price and she told me how she was selling things to raise money for her school books. She then walked beside me protecting me from the traffic (cows, cars, Tuktuks, scooters, coaches and cycle rickshaws) until we reached our bus. A beautiful memory.
1 Sometime ago we gave away some brass wire through Free-cycle and today, one of the people who had some, sent me an email to tell me what she has done with it. She has made these very pretty Feeding Bugs! Please click on the symbol if the bugs aren’t showing.
2 We have Skyped with Daniel and Ami in Barcelona, so lovely to talk to them and see them again. We’ve missed them while we’ve been away.
3 I’ve been sorting our holiday photos and have put together a gallery of photos that we took at the Taj Mahal. You can click on any photo for an enlargement.
1 Leaving Kathmandu for Delhi very early in the morning, as people are going to work and the sun is coming up through the trees.
2 This beautiful young mother was waiting to fly with her tiny three week old son.
3 As we flew West for eight and a half hours we were flying into the sunset for such a long time. The colours were so intense and so beautiful.
And a 4th today – being met by our beautiful daughter.
