There's a part of every living thing

that wants to become itself:
the tadpole into the frog,
the chrysalis into the the butterfly,
a damaged human being into a whole one.
That is spirituality.-Ellen Bass.

All serious daring starts from within.
Eudora Welty.

It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Have been so busy-now retired from practise as parents need me more and father has had a complicated fracture left lower leg.Had to have plate and pins and skin transplant on top of that!!! emoticon
    So I am alternating between Kochi where my Hubby is and Kotayam with my parents.

    Life is so full of amazing things thatastonish one-my CSF pressure is now high and my psoriatic arthritis has been bad but have been doing more yoga, praying and meditation.

    I haven't forgot SP and hopefully will get a blog in daily.Am using another tracker on my phone.
    More news later.

    Here you are, Ranjini!
    I hope you are doing well and the sleeve surgery is continuing to give you results as hoped. They say gastric surgery can be difficult to adapt to!
