Goodbye ‘Til Then
I calculated that it has been about a 6,500 km distance travelled by our two buses in 12 days. That’s also a lot of miles. If it wasn’t for a three day break in
Here we are, in
poised for procession on hip Calgary 8th
Avenue. The chanting begins after the usual smash
of the coconuts to the ground by sponsors of the event.
Once we reached the park after a good hard pull of the chariot, I sat through a great pantomime presented by the
players. Then after a meal I began
scurrying about readying everyone for the bus segment of the stage program. Edmonton
“Where’s Sita? She does the makeup. Where’s everyone? Where’s the cast? Have they got their costumes on yet? We don’t want to be late.” These are the mantras milling through my mind. It’s become a fairly regular thing to say it out loud or in the mind during this intensive week.
Before I bid my goodbyes to the bus crew, I felt a creeping pounding to the heart because I developed a bond with these young people. Be they in their late teens or early 20’s, I really do see saintliness in them. I feel we are really like a family.
May the Source be with you!
