Between Those Storms of Wind and Hail




I have been so moved by the wonderful comments and encouragements that I have received from so many kind readers. Thank you so very much indeed, everyone.  Never doubt that our prayers and good wishes for each other will do their intended work.

Irksomely, it seems the universe itself forbade me to post last week. I tried to post this article, but my computer failed thrice as I hit ‘publish’. On the third attempt my old Mac actually shut down.  Pretty clear message as they go. Then my health took a plunge, and I’ve had to lie low for a while. Improving today though, so, it is with a certain scientific curiosity that I shall be hitting ‘publish’. And if you never get to read this, then I expect I’ll have to write something else.

Here then are the “forbidden words”:

I wasn’t expecting conditions that would allow me to haul myself out-of-doors today, but, ‘deus ex machina,’ the wind has changed direction, and everywhere I look, I see only beauty.

When this seemingly endless winter concedes a day or two to the sun, I grab my camera. The first five pics above were taken in our garden, the rest were taken from corners of our windows.  I hope you enjoy them, and I hope too to be back soon with very many more.

Peace, and Namaste, from Amras.


Buddha seeds planted in the mind, will sprout with the coming of the all pervading rain.

A friend returns to the garden.


Finally, a sunny day.  Quite cold, but sunny.  And the long-awaited blooms have returned to the dress the bare magnolia.  I wanted to share the moments, so here they are, in pics. I hope you like them, and I also hope to return with lots more pics, very soon.

Namaste from Amras.
