a potful of memories


we went to a lovely spiritual retreat in kasargod, kerala…

as i think back i remember the scent of the

bushes of jasmine,

sweet milk from cows that had their own individual names, a neat as a pin cowshed under fans to cool off in summer,

and cool water from these pots…


of course, we did the non-spiritual things as well…

1. we threw up in paperbags in the van
2. we played cards
3. and only 16 of us went together — youngest was 4 and the oldest 82 — and everyone had to outshout the other to be heard

[to be continued. or may be not.]

  1. Paper bags really? Aren’t you taking this whole no-plastic thing a little too far?
    Kerala in monsoon – God’s own country.

    • when in rome, and all that, lg.

      we went just before the monsoons — but we did get a hint of rain and thunder – yay
