curry on....



There's an upcoming gathering I would love to attend.  Actually, my preference would be to arrive unannounced and simply sit down at the table where a bunch of beautiful Greenbelters will be dining.  On curry.  However, the gathering, which takes place mid March is across the pond.  Brick Lane.  London, England.  Anyone have an extra few air miles they'd like to donate?  :) 

Brick Lane curry happenings pop up regularly.  Even though I'm far away in the land of snow, I'm always included in the e-vite.  I love receiving them. It makes me feel so special .... so connected to a group of people whom I have met directly AND indirectly through blogging.   Who would've thunk it??  Amazing how our lives can intertwine so beautifully with no clear explanation as to how, when, why.........  

By posting on my little space in the virtual universe, somehow it generated human touches, human heartsongs, human connections that have prompted me to share more openly, reflect more deeply, and most importantly feel a sense of belonging beyond the line on the horizon...........  The way I see it?  The internet has created portals to villages where one can find kindred spirits  offering to share a curry meal with you!

If I could, I would be at Brick Lane with ringing bells on my toes and a humongous smile on my face.  Heaven knows I wouldn't be able to" keep calm and curry on."  Curry?  Yes.  Calm?  No way!  If I could find a way to join this group I'd be as excited as an exuberant lottery winner. 

This week's photo theme is Letters.......... I took this photo last year while spending a day traipsing through another one of my favourite cities... Toronto.  For more, check out my friend Carmi's place.  He posts the most interesting words and letters.

We are curry-ing on here too I was happy to hear friends are all right. Hard times. I hope very much you are able to join the group. You went through a hard time yourself so you deserve it.
Take care Marja

I'm endlessly fascinated by the threads that connect us all, by the way we end up in each other's orbit. It reaffirms my belief that life is a remarkable gift, and we continue to find new ways to share the joy.

We'll just have to organize something similar on this side of the pond. Hmm...
