Lola Bites Back, 2005-2011
Whew, it was a whirlwind few years there, eh? From the most miserable go-nowhere job I ever had (that's you, IIE!), to the most transformational experience I ever had (eternal gratitude to Mata Gangaji), to the most fairy-tale experience I ever had (you're my inspiration, Herr Fritz) ...
There have been a lot of ups and downs with plenty of learnings in between over the last six years, and no doubt there will be many more, as my newest guru is just starting to speak.
Not to worry, though, my writing career is far from over. It's just on hiatus while I focus my time and energy on the little one. Children grow up fast - goes the colloquial wisdom - and someday soon little Mo will be off having adventures of her own. At that time I may wish to revisit this forum to once again ..
Or not... who can say for sure?
No long-winded goodbyes for me, tho, I leave you only with my newest favorite quotes. May they bring you as much peace and reassurance as they do me. It all comes down to our expectations, after all:
"It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted in a profoundly sick society." -J. Krishnamurthi
"Happiness is but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain." - Thomas Hardy (The Mayor of Casterbridge, a.k.a. The Life and Death of a Man of Character, 1886)
Thanks for joining me,
PD I will continue the occasional email with pictures...just contact me should you like to be included.
