I just got back from an intense trip to India. Have you been? I experienced complete overwhelm. Between the colors, food, smells, horn honking and poverty, I often clenched my heart and took deep breaths. What a different culture. A beautiful one, but very different from my own. I am so grateful I took a trip that stretched me on all levels (mental, emotional, physical & spiritual). I have a deeper love for life and appreciation for the gifts and uniqueness we each offer ourselves & one another. Oh and I might have been inspired to create a few new jewelry designs.
