Landscaping, Contractors  and Projects; oh my…

Sunrise in the mountains. I spent the night at the Stara Planina Meditation Centre last night. It is the first time since we purchased the place that I have stayed there. It was peaceful and I slept well even though I was nervous about meeting with the landscapers the next day. In spite of having…

Autumn in the Air…

I went for a walk this evening, scouting out the twisting little road that runs by our house and accompanying me was our neighbors cat, Mrs. Brown. She has been my constant companion since I arrived back in the village of Gostilitsa and as we walked and she did her chatty cat talk; the wind…

Princess Piper update…

Sus has made it back to Mumbai and has sent me pictures of Piper, Sophie and Izzu. All are doing well and are happy to have her home. 

The Beauty in Tiny Things…

Susie and I have spent the past week or so rushing around meeting with contractors, landscapers, picking items up for the houses and getting the water heater fixed. It has been kind of crazy.  One day this week while we were waiting on someone to meet us at the retreat I wandered around with phone…

The best laid plans…

I forgot the plug point to my laptop, making it almost impossible to charge it (thank God for power banks it is slow but doable). I am also happy that I packed my tablet because that will be my primary mode of blogging while I am in Europe.  I am currently enjoying the quiet and…

Beautiful Bulgaria…

you are my sanctuary and I am so happy to be here. Sus and I arrived in Ruse/Pyce yesterday afternoon, exhausted evidently, because the brief nap we planned to take lasted until 6a.m. this morning. We are hanging out here until Monday to recover from jet-lag and I will keep this short because my brain is fried and…

I am still feeling discombobulated this week. I have been adjusting my circadian rhythms to a different time zone…unsuccessfully, for the past week. Part of the joy of travelling with Bipolar Disorder. I am still out of my room and working from the dining room table (this time with Piper’s help) and I have a list…

Kitten Update…

the kitten has a name…Princess Piper. Piper for short. She is fully integrated into the household and I am hoping that I will have my room back shortly. I am still using the old photograph because she hasn’t taken a decent picture since that one…every picture has been an orange and white blur. Thank you…

A Room of One’s Own…

I’m, unfortunately, not referring to the series of essays by Virginia Woolf. I simply have been displaced. My room is currently being used by a rescued kitten and I am currently working at the dining room table in the living/dining combo space of our Mumbai flat. I am very discombobulated and suffering from Blogger’s Block and it is entirely my fault….
