April silence . . .


A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

-- Swami Sivananda


It's been a very quiet month on the blog -- sorry about that.

But many people have still been dropping by, reading older posts and clicking the response boxes and sending private notes. And we've even gotten a few more people joining us on Facebook.

Thank you all for hanging in there during this brief quiet period.

It's the school holidays for two weeks, so I’ve been busy having both children home and keeping them active and entertained, and I've also been going through some life changes that I'll be blogging about shortly. So things will get more lively around here soon. Promise!

I hope you all have been well and, for those of you in England, that you managed to enjoy the few amazingly glorious days of warmth and sunshine we had recently – hopefully Spring will truly spring for us and they will come back.

  1. Your picture, this statue of Beloved Shiva is one which came to me a year ago in a vision. I sought it out online and found that statue the exact visage of what I saw upon Ebay, but it had already sold. I wonder...did you buy this a year ago?

  2. Oh wow, yes! That is, in effect, the same statue from eBay. That is where I got it. The exact one you saw on eBay was on its way to me, but was broken in transit. They had to go back to the same group of artisans in India that provide them and ask for another. The one in the photo is that replacement one, done to the same specifications, but each one is individually carved so no way to be identical. What a 'small world'!

  3. Shiva always works with pictures with me.

    Shiva was saying...."look here see this goodly One? Follow her!" :P

    All the more reason to Love you so very much<3

  4. You are so lovely, Mahalaya... xxx !!
