a passage to india
my lovely one returned from india with these gorgeous treasures, as well as fascinating and eye-opening stories about his time there. our house just exploded with color when he opened his suitcase; i can't get enough of the vivid reds, the gorgeous patterns, the details, and the energy that comes from these beautiful objects. the biggest treat is the stack of magazines [these pages are from meri saheli, grehlakshmi, vanitha, and grihshobha]. i know only a bit of basic hindi grammar and the devanagari script, so it will take a lifetime for me to decipher it all. he even brought some magazines in tamil (i think it's tamil!), which looks like a very pretty sequence of curlicues.
most of all, i'm happy to have him home again. life is back in balance, i can now officially exit minimalist parenting mode, and start thinking about our next trip. oh, travel! even just hearing about it sets my mind abuzz with inspiration. may you all have an inspired and creative week :)
