Homewards

A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.

-- George Moore


Tomorrow, I'm headed home for a week long vacation! I'm very excited about this trip, since I've been missing home and folks for a very long time now. During this time, I will not be able to visit your blogs and will not also be posting on my space! My Photo Blog, Imaging Oblivion, will be on auto-post mode running the "Trees of Pradhikaran" series which begins here.

I'd also like to wish my country cousins, friends and folks a very happy Easter and Vishu (The Malayalam New Year). It falls on the 14th of April. I wish all of you a great deal of prosperity, peace, health, joy and togetherness. May our bonds grow stronger than ever!

I will be back in Pune on 20th and will resume posting then.

Footnotes:

This was the first image I shot with my CX6200, when I bought it many years ago! The view is from our veranda opening up to Mom's garden. I posted it here on my photo blog, early this year.
