Thank you

All of you out there and your lovely messages. Sorry for not getting back individually. The operation is over, successfully. Maybe that was the easy bit, now it's the recovery and the coming to terms with this monster and never allowing it to resurface. We are waiting for the final results which...

Magic Mountains .. cont...

The distance from Pandu Pul to the Mantalai lake is a days hard walking. No regular path or trail, it’s just a lot of boulder hopping finding the easiest route over the glacial moraine. Hard on the legs and blistering to the feet, so when we found a tiny meadow beside a mammoth rock about mid... Sign in to see full entry.

Is it about women or people?

Reference to boom Xers and other writing by womeninthegap. It started me thinking. I would ask, do we think of ourselves as human beings, persons first, or as primarily of the female sex? I am a person and that person is a woman. So as a person is where my sense of self has to be. My confidence and... Sign in to see full entry.

A thought over an evening drink

Somethings female and a few male. How much do we know about ourselves? how much do we just not think too deep about? How much time do we spend pondering on what we felt? Really felt – not only the surface emotion. How much of it is what we are conditioned to believe? What of that do we believe... Sign in to see full entry.

Unlike the Pundit, John was a curiosity we definitely needed to question. We are a hospitable people, and within that concept of hospitality it is polite to enquire after a person, their family, what they do. It is not just rude curiosity, as is often perceived by foreigners, it is to welcome and... Sign in to see full entry.

Magic Mountains .. cont...

We climbed further up the valley, the river was narrow and a broiling, leaping froth over huge boulders. The valley opened up into the debris of glacial moraine. Rubble, scree, boulders, still interspersed with amazing flowers and little meadows of tough, scrubby grass. The next two days, the priest... Sign in to see full entry.

There is a definite energy in that valley. Parvati is the Mother Goddess, the daughter of the Himalayas and the source of power. I think she watched over us the whole way. The monsoon was building up and we were concerned that it would catch us before we got to the pass and climbed into the rain... Sign in to see full entry.

On what school gave to us.

I am digressing from the Parvati episode, because i read Mikes blog which inspired me to share the following. I joint Welham Girls school in January 1965. A few weeks after my 7 th birthday and passed out in Dec 1973 after giving my isc exams a few weeks before my 16 th birthday. What went into the... Sign in to see full entry.

Magic Mountains .. cont...

The year was 1991, the end of June when my intrepid aunt Prem, her daughter – my cousin Pia and I decided we were going to attempt the Pin-Parvati trek. The Parvati valley held a special fascination for my aunt, she had wanted for years to visit this river. End June is still rather early for high... Sign in to see full entry.
