I'm off, then





It is time to get ready for pilgrimage.

This year's pilgrimage takes me to India and Nepal.  While last year Dean and I spent a lot of time in the state of Rajistan, this year's pilgrimage is more of a plane affair, with Mumbai, and then a flight to Udaipur, Jaipur and Kanvera; then up to Varanasi, and finally to Kathmandu.

To say "I'm eager" to go is an understatement. I'm ready, personally, to get going to meditate, cogitate, and reflect upon the way my life seems to be going currently.

"I'm off, then..."

Buen Camino!  B
