india ..waiting for words.

I have been to India three times since I first posted this.
Today April 22, 2019 I still do not have the words to speak of my time there.

 

India takes a lot out of me. Physically and emotionally.
Walking is difficult on the knee I injured on the Camino. Potholes, zooming beeping vehicles, and wandering animals.
My emotions ping between sadness, anger, and delight ..all in a ten minute sipping of lemon tea.
Poverty and gratitude. Devotion and hope. Rudeness and a helping hand.
My body really does not like heat. Or bad smells. After a few months, I know it’s time to leave.

 

As soon as I am on the return fight back to the states, thoughts of WAIT STOP THE PLANE flood my entire being.
