Day seven: Birthday

3 commentsIndia

My birth­day (appar­ent­ly — so Corinne says) starts with a morn­ing walk to the lake, where we chant to the sun­rise. I also run into Tsering by the water cool­er and we make a wish on an eye­lash I pick off her fore­head. She gives me a nice warm hug as she leaves to spend the day in the vil­lage.

Fog blan­kets the lake dur­ing sun­rise.

Corinne and I have our pic­ture tak­en as we walk back to the ashram.

Unlike many chil­dren on our walk, this lit­tle girl paid no atten­tion to us.

I aways peek through the lay­ered spaces of the hous­es on our way.

Andrea (the Hungarian dancer from last night’s tal­ent show) says Aquarius will have a very good year on all fronts — but we have to be patient. All that at the Health Hut, where I have a banana milk­shake and a herbal cola (hey, it’s my birth­day!).

Corinne thinks the chal­lenge was the first week of being here, when every­thing was new. I think it’ll be the third week, when noth­ing is.

After sat­sang, I run into Tsering again on the steps of Shiva Hall and she wish­es me a hap­py birth­day again. This is a good day.

Om out.
