Round and Round I Go

It's like I've come full circle as of this week. I'm back in Ooty for Hebron school's drama week. I promised the first dorm that I worked with that I would be back for their standard 13 drama week. Which is this year. Crazy...They were in standard 7 when I first started working with them, and now … Continue reading Round and Round I Go

Singing Goatherds

Herds of goats, yaks, ponies, donkeys, and cattle are passing through the area of Tso Moriri Lake in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, India, on the way to their winter pastures.   The field beside the lake is full of animals, along with their owners/shepherds. They will remain there for about 15 days, … Continue reading Singing Goatherds

Water Bottles Everywhere

Technically, bottled water in India is cheap. Usually about rs20-30 for a bottle (less than 50 cents). Filtered water is a must for travelers in India, a place where even the locals won't drink tap water. But really, the cost is a lot higher than many people are willing to acknowledge. It's bad enough in … Continue reading Water Bottles Everywhere

A Woman in India

Ok. So I'm not going to share all of my potential shots for the books. Where would the point of buying them be then? But I'll share some of them and hope they generate interest for the Kickstarter. This is Birma (not sure if the spelling is correct). She saw me taking pictures and called … Continue reading A Woman in India

Jallianwala Bagh

To get to the memorial area, you walk down a narrow passageway, which is the reason that the massacre was so devastating. The British soldiers were able to block off the passageways and shoot everyone like fish in … Continue reading Jallianwala Bagh

Successful Women What?

I've been struggling with having any inclination to do anything lately. Literally anything other than snuggle with a kitten (yes, I really miss my kittens. My Mom keeps suggesting that I read a book called "Successful Women Think Differently" by Valorie Burton. She sent it to my Kindle last fall, and I started to read … Continue reading Successful Women What?

Bored Pony

I went this morning to the changing of the guard at Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Presidential Residency in New Delhi. Part of the changing of the guard is an equestrian demonstration, but the horses come out first and stand and wait as the guards change. This horse was obviously tired of waiting. He was standing nicely … Continue reading Bored Pony

On the Ground-Delhi

Well, I have my first stamp in my new passport. ​ It actually made me a little nervous, traveling on a visa in an expired passport, and my new passport without any visa in it.But there were no problems at all.  I had contacted the Indian consulate in Chicago, just to check and see if … Continue reading On the Ground-Delhi

Alternative to Show Sheen

If you're like me, you want to make your horses look pretty, but you don't really like the idea of spraying chemicals all over them to do that. I am, of course, referring to Show Sheen. How often, especially if you did any horse shows, have you sprayed that on your horse, or asked a … Continue reading Alternative to Show Sheen
