The image on the left is of Matthias Goeritz's on-site installation called the Big Dipper at my favorite place to stay in the West End , Aspen Meadows.
This was my second visit to the 40 acre property , this time almost summer like , and it did not disappoint once again.
I emailed the image to Maharaja & expressed my apologies for not being able to make it for his retreat / darshan in Northern California.
In order to make up for this , I would go on japa walks around the property after a long day of meetings. Enjoying the silence , seclusion & beauty of the property. Very sublime to see a couple of fawns staring at me without fear as I hiked along one of the mountain trails.
