It’s been about 1 1/2 years since I last posted here.  There are many reasons for my absence, and truthfully, I thought I was finished with blogging.

But once again, several synchronicities have blessed me over the past several months, all leading me to this day, when, with great joy and gratitude, I return to my writing.

This past year and a half has been a true roller coaster ride…so many unbelievable things finding their way into my life…experiences, people, wisdoms…things beyond anything I could ever imagine or even dream of.

stranger than fiction

So, where to begin….

How about the fact that I turned 70 this year!  Still trying to wrap my head around that number…which basically, is all that it is…a number.  But still, all my life, even today, when I hear that someone is 70, my first thought is, “gee, that’s old!” .  And yet…I’m definitely NO!

70 birthday all together

So wrapping my head around the whole notion is an interesting process.  And it has brought me great insights, understandings and loving perceptions of who I am at this stage in my life.  I have also begun to work with other women who will find themselves at this crossroads in life and the responses have been remarkable.

I feel deeply grateful and immensely blessed to have reached this wonderful new place in my life…I don’t know where the coming posts will lead, but have a feeling that many of them will be related to this new stage in my life’s journey…and this is very exciting to me.

Wonderful family, new love, continued love affair with India, dancing more than ever before,  deepening my Reiki, Yoga and Meditation practices…all wonderful things.

So…good to be back, and look forward to whatever beautiful surprises lay ahead.

Much love light and JOY

…to enjoy great Indian food.

Just have to take the time to learn how to prepare it and then get busy in the kitchen. My lunch today…
Rajma, my all time favorite dahl, ginger garlic rice and butter chapatti. And of course the meal was ended with a delicious glass of steaming masala chai.
Namaste

Best Cure for Homesickness

Punjabi Kadhi and Methi Pakora with Rice

Nothing can help get past the feelings of homesickness for a place, or a person, better than a good home cooked meal which brings back fond memories of that place or person.

So today, missing India more than usual, I decided to put together this lovely dish. It was the first time I’ve ever made it and it came out truly delicious.
I used the link at the end of the post as the basis for the dish after checking out several recipes online.
