Wherein Glastonbury and India come right to my blogging screen . . .
So far, my visits to England have not allowed me to meet someone I'm sure would become a friend, someone whose too-occasional posts always interest and nourish me, someone who recently navigated the terrifying landscape of breast cancer -- which she calls (indicating much about her sense of humour, courage, and general approach to life) The Massive Inconvenience. Earlier this week I was happy to see a new post from 60goingon16 in my Reader mailbox, and even more delighted to find new music to love. Read 60's post and then have a listen to this fabulous Indian group, the Raghu Dixit Project. Then you might want to stop by and read Lisa's father, the Professor, on Forster's Passage to India and perhaps some of her thoughtful writing about the meeting between her 54-year-old self and the brave 20-something woman who travelled India on her own in the early 80s.
As for me, I'll be tracking down Raghu Dixit CDs to order (like 60/16 I'm still a fan of the hard copy) and wondering where to find time to read and listen . . . and thinking about how much blogging friends have broadened my horizons.
