Emirates have upgraded me to Silver. So why have we not upgraded our linings?
And in terms of ankle bracelets in India, silver is still preferred over gold or even platinum. Supposedly inauspicious if you wear gold yet gold is the standard we hold precious.
Standing in line, even though I’ve checked in online, people remind me of the world I’m returning too and a prayer comes to mind
Grant me the grace to accept the things I cannot change,
the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Usually ‘God’ is placed at the front although ‘Shiva’ would be my preferred deity now. God of creation and destructive, destructive creativity.
My prayer today would be...
Grant me the memory to remember this sense of grace, the humility to shanti shanti and the humour to remember the sense of joy we shared.
We’re merely one memory away from being that happy again at any time.
As Gapu says, your time will come, and go soon enough, so enjoy.
the life you have.
