When we are not busy doing, we often sit and talk about every topic you can imagine. Our group is shrinking. Barbara left mid-week, and Dasa and Kelley will leave mid-week this week. Then it will just be me and the Shankar family for a while. Feb.1 I will begin studying the Yoga Sutras with Ravi, so life will take on a different rhythm. I'm looking forward to it.
I still find myself needing to spend time doing nothing. I come back to my room with all good intentions to blog, do email, read, or write in my journal. But more often than not, I just sit. I need the empty time and space to begin to integrate some of what I'm learning.
I'm also suffering from writer's block because there are SO many things I want to blog about, and I don't know where to start. The pictures below are teasers. I intend to post a full entry on each of them over time. Other topics I am considering are: Ayurvedic and Siddha medicine, food, language, the Shankar family, suggested reading, fashion, trash and bathrooms. I'm sure there are others. Please let me know if there is a particular topic you'd like me to cover.

A delicious meal at the Shankar household.
