Farewell India. Where there is love there is life. Mahatma Gandhi

I am at my window looking at my parrot tree and they will soon fly home to roost.  Me too, though my route  will take a total of thirty hours of airport time since my route is the Atlantic for the "group rate".  I can't sum up India, that will be a process that will not have a concrete conclusion.  I would return, but only in the winter.  I will follow India's story for the rest of my life.  My prayers will be for much progress and development, and for the continued and increased efforts at educating the children.  I hope in the next generation that every young woman in India will know that they are an asset and not a liability.  I hope that every young man will continue to see himself as an asset.  I of course have many more hopes for this vibrant and perplexing nation.

I will be home Friday afternoon August 9th after one more celebration and good night's sleep in India.  God bless you for following me!  I appreciate it.  To the friends and family who have sent me messages via comments, emails, Facebook and WWF messages thanks so much for the love and lifeline.  See you soon.  I will probably be wearing shoes.  Yes, I am very grateful to have had this opportunity - it has been a wonder.
