"For each home ground we need new maps,
living maps, stories and poems,
photographs and paintings, essays and songs.
We need to know where we are,
so that we may dwell in our place with a full heart."
- Scott Russell Sanders
Siddhartha - Sara Atri and Eddy Bialostotsky
"I can think, I can wait, I can
Do I go, do I stay?
(with - my father, Govinda, Kamala, my son)
Do I love, do I hate?
(money, Buddha, my son)
How can I not cry
After everyone I've ever loved went their way?
Risks lie ahead
To find my way.
Hope you find your way
And that nirvana will come to you someday.
