After all the Christmas songs, the sound of Indian music adds an extra energy to this afternoon while I look at old books of Indian jewels and get ready to celebrate
the New Year that is coming soon to sing and dance the old year out.
And here on my table lots of snakes , symbols of so many myths, and first among them the idea of wisdom. In Kerala snake shrines are found in most households.
Perhaps because they live below ground, they can speak
about the ancient earth to us, and how to care for it.
