As we celebrate the transition into Fall, it is like saying goodbye to an oldfriend or family member. It’s hard to let go, but also reminds us that the road continues ahead of us waiting for us to embark on our next journey.
For me, it is hard to believe that 19 years ago this month, I lost my father to cancer. That loss taught me so much and helped shape me into who I am today. One of the fondest memories I have of him is listening to his stories of how he grew up in India. His stories were fascinating ones of pet monkeys and elephants and getting bit by a pit viper snake!
Well, for me, this fall welcomes the journey of a lifetime for me. I will be heading to India at the end of this month. I will visit places that my father had been before me. Even though he is not here, or there, I feel that he will be with me as I make this trip around the globe. I invite you to come, too. Just as I blogged while in Thailand, I will be blogging my way around the World. Come along, it is sure to be a trip that I’ll never forget!
Om Shanti, Namaste’
