Being You....

You suppose you are the trouble

But you are the cure

You suppose that you are the lock on the door

But you are the key that opens it

It's too bad that you want to be someone else

You don't see your own face, your own beauty

Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours.


Happy PPF and a Happy 2012!!!

Love without limits...

The garden of


is green without


and yields many


other than sorrow

and joy.

Love is beyond either


without spring,

without autumn,

it is always fresh.

-- Jelaluddin Rumi

Eat, Pray, Love

I've not read the book
neither have I seen the movie...

but we had a slice of our little paradise
when we visited the island of Bali again....

so, here's our little adventure....

Balinese fried noodles

Fried rice

Pancakes made with local produce

 breakfast with a view of the hills and the river right below

spicy dips , sauces and fresh vegetables..
deep fried crispy duck...a specialty in Bali...

and onwards to a spiritual journey.....

 Prayers offered at the century old temple
at Gunung Kawi

a ceremony or upacara (in Indonesian language)
as it was the eclipse of the moon..

Locals taking a bath in a pool with
continuos flow of mountain spring water said to be holy water...

Love the arts, the craft...

Beautiful and hospitable local Balinese..

these moments are so precious..

..... at peace with myself and the beautiful countryside..

sunset from our room..
we were awaken by the sounds of birds, crickets and
livestock from the farms right below the hills.....

So, in the true spirit of 
Eat, Pray and Love...

"We must make good use of this life for the time
that we have left, This brief flash of light,
like the sun appearing through the clouds"

Kalu Rinpoche

Happy T Tuesday!!

Love always...
