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.
