I Miss You, India!

Taj Mahal

There’s a million and one reasons why I love India. Now and then I get completely overwhelmed with a deep and urgent longing for all things Indian. When that happens I usually light a couple of incense sticks and hug my mug of masala chai for comfort, silently counting the days until I’ll return… India is my Guru, and although it’s true that geographical distance doesn’t mean a thing as long as there’s a heart connection… I’m still yearning to be close to India again.

DEATH

DEATH

Terry Pratchett is an absolutely brilliant writer and his books really amuse me :)

DEATH, found in several of his books, is the quirkiest and most memorable character in a book ever – I adore him to bits! Don’t you just love him too? ♥

Here’s a few of my favourite Pratchett quotes:

Sydän on kohtelias

Sydän on kohtelias

Sydän on kohtelias, se puhuu vain kun mieli on hiljaa.
