Decemberists!: Margharita, With A Straw

Wind down the year where time has no beginning or end!

“In ceaseless motion round the purple rim
Day after day sped by like coloured spokes,
And through a glamour of shifting hues of air
The seasons drew in linked significant dance
The symbol pageant of the changing year.”

Impairment in the human ability isn’t and shouldn’t be a limitation to creativity. On the contrary, the Savant syndrome may actually augment talents. The first Braille press of India has been operational about 30 km from the AZIMVTH Ashram.

Himalayas are the highest mountains of the world. And the Ashram is in its foothills about 4 km away.

Due to thick forests in the vicinity, the logging industry thrives here. There are several saw-mills about 100 m away. And also over a dozen wood crafting shops where carpenters are busy.

The holidays of December bring welcome leisure time. And opportunities to relax, reflect and be blessed by The Carpenter.
