Friday evening

On my way to my house from my brother's house I just stopped in the middle of the road so I could get out of my car and take this picture. This was taken from Sombrillo Rd East which is the road that the Gurdwara is off of. It's not a very busy road and nobody came along while I stopped to take some photos.

You guys have the richest colours :)

Do you feel sometimes that you'd be a different person, were you some place else? (I think time is affecting my senses :P - you can ignore the question)

I would be a totally different person if I had grown up somewhere else! I doubt many other places would have shown me the extremes as I have experienced here.
The sorrow from facing people who hate you and challenge/abuse you every day of your childhood (in reference to almost all the non-Sikh people from my childhood). The extreme joy of sitting with a divinely inspired sangat on a (minimum) weekly basis to chant the heavanly words of God.
To view the desert and see a barren land. To live in the desert and see the enormous amounts of life supported by this delicate eco-system. To view the landscape and see harshness. To befriend the landscape and see it's tenderness.
To live in a valley and constantly enjoy the mountains.
To see the rich and poor waste away. To see the rich and poor share.
My life has been shaped by growing up in EspaƱola. Like the rest of the world I don't like to suffer and I don't like to see anybody else suffer. Other than the intense desire to remember God always, my only other desire that shapes who I am is to serve the people who are suffering.
If I were someplace else now (as an adult) I would also be different. This place is my home, and it is where my heart is. I can be anywhere and feel the same, but I couldn't live any where else and be the same. There is no other place on earth that has what I experience here. I live in the society of saints, away from pollution, amongst nature's grandest displays, and these things remind me of the greatness of God on a frequent basis. Until one day I may never forget God even for an instant.

Very well framed. You have the gift of thought. God bless.
