In Search for yourSELF

The Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci
There comes a time for every single human being,
to feel they're lost and stuck in life.

They read books from many that claimed they were once in the same limbo,
to the teachings of many ascended masters.
They change their physical self in the hope that this will win the crowd and they'll become a happier SELF.

Some quit their jobs,
travel to Nepal, Angkor Wat, and the likes,
looking for answers to cure their ailments.

But none ever thought that the answers are nowhere to be found,
that those trips to uncharted territories on earth are of pleasure only,
because the answers were already there,
before you even stepped out of the door to catch that plane.

If only you see beyond the appearance.
If only you realise the beauty in everything.
That there is consciousness in every existance,
no matter how small or how big it may be.
If only you opened your heart and look within.

Knit and Crochet Fair 2013

Last Sunday, despite her opposition defiance virus (I say yes, she says no, I say no,  she says yes, etc), we trot along to the "Festival Rajut Bandung 2013" (Bandung Knitting Fair 2013).

Getting there was an art in itself.  Thinking the highway would be a wise choice (less traffic since we have to pay to get on it), 5 minutes into the 'highway', we were stuck already.
Slowing down....
Getting slower...
Really really stuck!
 The "Under the Sea" display at "Festival Rajut Bandung 2013".

The competition, theme: Aquarium.  Of course no aquarium is complete without a Barbie doll.
Stuck again on the way home!
The haul.  Deliberate angle, I have a grey mohair mountain at the back.
Things to note:
- people don't sleep in on Sunday morning here....
- they're found on the highway...
- I'm going to be quite busy listening to lectures in the next few months...
- while knitting/crocheting....
