Four Places You Would Rather Be:
-Somewhere close to nature, in a quiet town in some valley, surrounded by woody mountains, with scent of trees heavy in the air…would love to live in a basic cottage in a place like this…exploring the bouty of nature and the goodness of people..
-In a tent perched on the white sands of a quiet beach ~ absorbing the golden glow of the sun setting over the vastness of the blue sea ~ flowing in the rhythm of the waves..
-In my balcony at night, sipping darjeeling tea, with moonlight pouring in from the outside chatting with some good friend
-At home with my family- eating hot pakodas with rain pouring outside...
Four Novels You Wish You Were Reading for the First Time:
-Lady of Hay (Barbara Erskine)

Four Things You Hope to Do Before You Die-
-See the world
-Follow the course of a river from the source to the end
-Find my true calling
-Learn one musical instrument so well that it flows with my blood
-'Live' in the true sense of the word
It was fun...! :)
For my part I now in-turn tag everyone on my know you all a little more than I do today...
"Earth wind and rain and fire,
Wealth power love desire,
One goal to live for before we die,
One taste of glory,
One mouthful of sky..."
