This last weekend was so typical of how my days tend to be – a peculiar mix of chaos and quiet. Saturday was busy and chaotic – culminating in Ishaan’s Annual Day, at the Iskon Auditorium. It was a wonderful celebration entitled ‘Choo Mantar’, which is loosely the equivalent of ‘Abracadabra’ 🙂 and which focused on the things fast disappearing from the lives of our children today – healthy food, healthy habits, playing outdoors, family interactions. Through little skits, the children showed us guilty parents what they really valued and what is truly precious! From the mouth of babes 😛
There were dances too and Ishaan’s class danced to one of my favorite kiddie songs of all time, ‘Ladki Ki Kaathi’ from Masoom, one of my favorite movies of all time 🙂 They were so perfectly angelic and their innocence so palpable – how could I not cry? 😉 So I did and enjoyed the therapeutics 😉 That was Saturday. In contrast Sunday was quiet and except for a bit of grocery shopping and finally placing an order for an iPad (notice how I slid that in there so smoothly? ;)), we just relaxed at home. Hubby left late afternoon on a business trip, while Ishaan took a much needed nap and I lost myself in Wild by Cheryl Strayed – an excellent book to be lost in! The review will follow shortly on The Reading Habit.
And so that brings me neatly back to Monday and another encounter with Mr. Monkton. This week I was inspired by ‘Wild’ and I thought this gem from Mr. Monkton captured the essence of the book perfectly! The theme of the book is indeed ‘Anything is Possible!’
Have a wonderful week ahead, pondering those possibilities People! 😉
