Postcard from Kathmandu 9

16 November 2009

I leave Kathmandu in a couple of hours …………………….

Yesterday I left the school…. with singing and drumming, with so many letters/pictures of love from the Children…… and  the moist tears that somehow shed light on words of love…..

Somehow in the few short weeks we have been together we have adopted each other…… god-father and god-children…
It is difficult to leave……. it would be easy to stay……. and yet it is right…. for my heart is full and there is so much to do and to be done as I return…….

The tears of love are masked by the word ‘sadness’……… for they are more like the “cup that overfloweth”
Sadness is usually know  alongsid loss….. tears can also be the life giving awater of Love….. something of the Divine

Perhaps the breath of God that moved over the waters in the book of Genesis was a similar experience of Love….. one that fills the heart with divine creation…..

Last might… also my last night……. I encountered Suraj again…. the same as the first night…
We shared a meal…. and he told me he wanted to go to school……………………

So a few phone calls this morning before i leave….. and maybe…. but also maybe not!

I feel I will need the three days I have staying at a friends farm in Bangalore just to sit…. to be still…. and to become familiar with all that I have received….

And then…………… I look forward to being on Safari…. and to seeing all that has has changed at st Paul’s

Peace & love
