Breathe, Dream, Go
Breathe Dream Go is an absolutely beautiful blog written by a fellow writer and friend, Mariellen Ward. Mariellen also travels to India often, as do I, and is as enamored of the country and its people as I am.
Today the blog has featured a guest post by me, called India Chooses You, on how India and her children affected me. It is a love letter to both the country and the people of India, and I hope it will give you some sense of why I felt compelled to be on this journey. India really did choose me, from the moment I arrived. Click here to read! An excerpt includes:
The very existence of these children had forever altered both the person I was and my view of the world. In some ways I felt more familiar to myself here, like I was now the person I had been brought to India to become. I had arrived, that first time two years before, not really knowing what to expect. I had not come to India to change anything about it; instead, the country and its people had worked a transformational change in me. They had allowed me into the real heart of the place and by doing so spared me from viewing it with the eyes of an outsider.”
Thank you, and Namaste!
