I have stopped taking MLC2 out with me on my morning walk these days….it’s summer, and I have to leave really early to get back before the temperature rises to uncomfortable levels, and I don’t feel all that safe to be carting it around. But a few days ago, I did, and here are some random things that I caught…
My brother was a very talented mridangam player, and if he had put his mind to it, he could (I’m not saying it because he was my brother) have become one of the top players in Carnatic music…but he was too easy-going for that.
Incredible, the way technology allowed us, sitting in the porch of a house in St Louis, to watch, live, the annual ceremony for my brother…we saw the puja, the food being served on plantain leaves, several of the guests stepped over and said hello, and they were able to see Eli, too….
I got what I thought was another Black-Crowned Night Heron, but no…it was the YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT HERON .
My thoughts are, more than ever, back home today…because in Chennai it is tomorrow… and a year ago, I drove down to see a bundle of clothes .
