So much for a clever post filled with wit and sage humor.
I'm sitting in the dark at LAX Gate 132 trying to repair the threads of work that have gotten tattered and frayed the last few weeks. So many loose ends, and with the prospects of being away from my office for such a long time, the task has been daunting. Here and now I am sending out an official blanket apology to anyone that I forgot to do something for or promised something to. The oversight was not intentional nor malicious, but is instead living proof that stress kills brain cells.
So here I am at LAX where I will catch my Emirates flight. Emirates is an airline based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The airline is a subsidiary of The Emirates Group, which is wholly owned by the government of Dubai's Investment Corporation of Dubai. Great Airline!
The Emirates flight departs at 10:30 PM, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7:00), direct to Dubai where I will catch a 4:30 AM, Gulf Standard Time (UTC +04:00) flight to Delhi to arrive at 9:10 AM, Indian Standard Time (UTC +5:30). I then hang out there all day for a 4:00 PM flight to Jodhpur. By the time I get there, I won't have clue what time it is or what day the week it is and I suspect it really won't matter, nor will I care.
After a 90km drive to Panchla Siddha and the Shri Jasnath Asan I will have arrived at my home for the next two and a half months.
I can hardly wait!!

I paint, photograph, and speak about wild places in an act of reciprocity that is as vital to me as heartbeat or breath.
My interest in the magic and mystery of the natural world lies at the intersection of art and science.
