Hehe, I would like to be more like a balloon wafting effortlessly up into the air, with not a care in the world :)
Today is a glorious day. The sun is shining, the messmonsters are outside at the neighbours horseriding and biking, and I got back to the wonderful surprise of having an hour more than I thought up my sleeve. Wooohooooo! Lucky
Alors mes amis, am I going to shower straight away like I should? Then throw myself with wild abandon into the preparation of tonights vittels?
I am ALONE!
ALONE ALONE ALONE ALONE ALONE
(joyful murmurings of a Crazy Woman!)
I am going to firmly sit here and
smell blog away to my heart's content, knowing I am not bothering anybody, then open the windows wide when I leave to pick up the possums :)
You see, I have this juicy little piece of wisdom from E.E Cummings that I really wanted to share with you:
To be nobody but yourself
in a world which is doing its best day and night
to make you like everybody else
means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight
- BUT NEVER STOP FIGHTING!
That just hit the spot for me today.
Especially as I'm still on my Tibetan trip and they have such a gentle but fighting spirit. Speaking of, here's a little more colour for you, in the form of the glorious Tibetan costumes from the 50th Anniversary TCV festivities held last October in Dharamsala.
I acutally have some exciting news to tell you about my plans in Dharamsala, I've just been a little shy about spilling the beans. A splash of colour first - and I'm sure I'll be able to recount the tale in a couple of days. Let's just say I'm taking you on a colour trip first.
Have a great mid week everyone.
Hmmm - I'd better go have that shower afterall - it's become too chilly to open the windows ;-)
