This and That, The Dog Days of Summer

After Guru Poornima, I’ve had a long hiatus from blogging, spanning the whole of August. I’m alive and well, just lazy during the dog days of summer to write. πŸ™‚

On the first leg of the flight back from Hartford (to DFW) I started and finished reading a pre-release copy of Michael Fischman’s new book, Stumbling Into Infinity. Fantastic book β€” un-put-down-able. More on that in a separate post, I think.

We also had a visit in Austin of Michael Mastro, Vastu expert and author of The Way of Vastu. Simply put, Vastu is Yoga for your home or office. More on Vastu in a separate post, which is already in progress, half-complete…

 

Currently Shraddha and I are both reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell.

Our good friends Vivek and Vivian tied the knot in Houston in a well-attended beautiful ceremony done in the traditional Kerala style, followed by the Chinese tea ceremony. Here’s a pic by Shraddha.

We saw Guruji on MTV! The episode is still available online on MTV.com. On the one hand it’s great that about a million viewers got to see Guruji on mainstream TV… but I can’t help wishing that they had profiled him in more detail.

We spent a day in Schlitterbahn cooling off. A water park is a lot of fun in summer, even for non-swimmers like me. I’m glad Shraddha persuaded me to go. πŸ™‚

Got some quality time with my camera, and took a few interesting pictures, including some that couldn’t have been taken without a dedicated hot-shoe flash… that is material for another photography post, perhaps…
