I just learnt that today is the start of *Ganesh Chaturthi.
My first eye to eye contact with the elephant headed deity was in Nepal in 2011.
Now, 10 years later, the symbol of resourcefulness and wisdom continues to inspire me to take things as they come without fear or resentment so that I may see clearly and dance lightly through all obstacles.
And while wondering how I could mark the occasion without leaving home, a dancing Ganesh pendant from my brother given a year ago and a recent hand drawn sunflower from a student combined to fulfil my intention.
Here’s wishing all friends, family & strangers the blessings of Wisdom & Resourcefulness to meet challenges with ease like my favourite Hindu deity.
Om Gam Ganapateya Namaha! 🙏
*Ganesh Chaturthi marks the anniversary of his arrival from Mount Kailash.
