Purging Fear

Bleeding Out
Today we went for our usual walk after dinner. Krishna Chandra caught up with Rasa Lila Devi. Chandaneswar and I chanted around the block. We went for darshan in the evening and I saw Indulekha Devi at the temple making garlands. I haven't seen her in a whi...

Wanderlust
I thought I would be writing more now that the semester is over, but I haven't. I worked out a little bit, but that quickly waned. I'd much rather walk around the park or jog on the treadmill. The other day I was thinking about all the journals I had, and h...

Anxiously Awaiting You
I saw you again today. I had almost forgotten all about you, and put you out of my mind when I saw you again. My mind was thoroughly exhausted today. I was blank, empty and alone but then I spotted your lovely face. I wanted to turn around and run to you, h...

Ronald Reagan
When I Answered “Ronald Reagan” Melissa Cruz I I guess you would not understand If I were to tell you plainly, I was dreaming, Daydreaming, imagining, fantasizing When I answered “Ronald Reagan” I can tell you here without import, Without repercussion knowi...

Marjanam
Today was the Gundica Marjan festival at our local temple. Appropriately, I'm in the process of cleaning house. Yesterday I organized & sorted saris with the help of a close friend. I'm giving away dozens of outfits (again); I feel compelled to change my ph...

Composite Composition
When I first saw you I didn't think much of you. That quickly changed when I heard you speak. I was fixated on your voice. I could listen to you speak for hours. At one point I had to delete all your lectures from my electronic device. I hoped, foolishly, t...

The Cobra Disciple
Today Chandaneswar prabhu displayed his ugra-murti, fearsome manifestation. In the past ten years, I have never seen him that angry and I'm his wife! What was funny about it was how he related the story to me later. He appeared to become furious with a woma...
