Dec. 22, 2008 – Good Morning!
Woke up this morning to a lovely blue sky, but the heavens quickly changed their appearance in a truly interesting show of Nature, which continues as I write. And as the colors changed, so did the temperature. It is really warm in the sun just 15 minutes ago, and now I can feel the chill even in my room.
When I first went out to drink my hot milk on my terrace in the warm sunshine, I was greeted suddenly by a blinding glare. The fog had begun to rush in and the sun was reflecting off it just like it would off snow sending a truly blinding light off in my direction. Then the fog continues to move in more quickly, covering the sun which now appears as the moon on a foggy night and I can look directly at it. I’ve tried photographing it but not sure how it will appear.
My Indian neighbor from the next room saw me and said “looks like another planet, yes?” At some point it had an amazing halo around it, as if revealing its living aura.
I can SEE the fog rolling past to fill the Ganga valley below, and at the same time a higher layer of fog is blowing OUT. It’s as if it can’t seem to make up its mind what it wants to wear today. One second the whole mountain is obscured and the next it is revealed and this continues to repeat itself, absolutely lovely.
I can see the fog swirling across and around my own rooftop terrace as it sends finger-like mist towards my door, as if trying to get INTO my room, not being satisfied with conquering the rooftop.
So, instead of my usual meditation/pranayama/yoga practice this morning, I am captivated by God’s wonders and it is just as wonderful, if not more so.
