Back In Action.

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been The foresight to know where you are going And the insight to know when you have gone too far.
~ Irish Blessing

I now have the hindsight to know where I have been the last week, the foresight to know that I will not be undertaking such a rushed visit in the future and the insight to know that I am not a spring chicken any more,

The visits to catch up with kith and kin went off well and a lot of fun was had by everyone concerned. I just missed my afternoon siestas, particularly after so much of food for lunch cooked with so much love and affection not having been allowed to go without doing justice!

My hosts, Sheila and Mohan provided me with five star hotel comfort with home made beverages and food and indulged me with so much love and affection that I almost took them up on their invitation to stay on for some more time. Thank you Sheila and Mohan.

Rajam, who comments occasionally on my blog posts decided that childhood memories must be revived and so arranged for me to attend a get together with all the youngsters of the 1950s who lived in three houses in a cul-de-sac and played and grew up together. Apart from that nostalgic meeting, the food that was laid out was out of this world and I have no words to express my amazement at her ability to do so much at such short notice. Thank you Rajam.

It is nice to be back home. The climate is just what the doctor ordered for me to follow the high humidity experienced during my visit to Chennai.

    My husband is in New Delhi now. He wrote that in the morning he was still full from gorging himself on the local food the night before. 🙂

    Ramana Dear
    Thank you and all the others who came home that afternoon in such a short notice. I had the most wonderful afternoon that day and will cherish it for a long time to come. Should do this as often as we can and catch up with our 1950 days.

      I am sure that the others will also agree that the pleasure was all ours. Yes, let us do it again but give it a break of some time as none of us are spring chicken!

    True . No matter how good it is when you travel its great to be back “home” on your own bed and knowing where everything is without asking/searching !

    You’re a well-loved man, Rummy. There is nothing like good food, good friends and good family to warm the heart. So glad that you had a good time.

    I had to laugh when you mentioned your regular ‘daily siestas!’
    I have gotten so used to being able to nap if I want to whenever I want to (how I love retirement!) that I would find that the hardest part probably, about traveling. but i’m thinking you are a WONDERFUL house guest! fun and appreciative and knowing just when to leave.
    i’m so glad you’re back home safe and sound and happy.
