ALOO BABA

Tole je Aloo Baba. Bradati striček, z iskrivimi očmi, ki je samo krompir (zato tudi Aloo = krompir) in je bojda toliko in toliko let nazaj ušel od doma, ker je želel živeti svoje življenje. In je zgradil Shiva tempelj, kjer sedaj živi.

Ga večkrat obiščem. Vedno nas pričaka odprtih rok, z nasmehom. Mi stisne v pest bonbon ali dva, ali pa mi v žep natrosi pražene čičerike. Obvezno nam vedno postreže tudi chai. Ne sprašujem ga nič. Samo opazujem. Domačine in ostale "svete može", ki hodijo k njemu, na polno debatirajo, kadijo čilum. Pa tudi turiste, s kakšnim občudovanjem ga gledajo in včasih tudi vprašajo res velko neumnost. Na primer, gospodično, iz Izraela, je zanimalo, ali se bo poročila z Izraelcem. Lepo prosim, no. . . Smo sedeli en dan. V krogu. V tišini. In nad nami je začela krožiti ogromna jata golobov. Pa je Baba vzel v roke enega novejših telefonov in jih začel fotografirat. "Look, pigeons making pooja!"




Kdo sploh je Baba? Bolj ko sprašujem, nihče ni ne zna razložit. Eden izmed odgovorov je bil "Look at him! This is Baba." No, pa mi je prijatelj iz Puškarja končno na najbolj enostaven način razložil kaj je Baba. Baba nima nikakršnih navezav na svojo družino, nima nobenega premoženja, vse kar ima, mu prinesejo ljudje in živi brez kakršnegakoli stresa. Življenje z naravo in "čisto" razmišljanje.

Nisva se še pogovarjala. In na začetku sem skrivaj kradla foto utrinke. No, potem pa se je Baba začel nastavljati, pozirati, za ne ga ustavit. Pa sem postala na pol osebna fotografinja Babi. In fotke bodo krasile njegov tempelj.




In tempelj je . . . . wow. Ure in ure lahko sediš na eni izmed teras, piješ chai, poslušaš dretje stoterih pavov, in samo si. Tam. Tako zelo hvaležen. Da lahko si. Tam.

Why listen?

"Well, then, why should I listen to my heart?"
"Because you will never again be able to keep it quiet. Even if you pretend not to have heard what it tells you, it will always be there inside of you, repeating to you what you're thinking about life and about the world."
(The Alchemist)

I N S P I R A T I O N

Sometimes you just need to change a place, make a distance from everything and recharge your creative batteries. 
And after a long time I feel alive again. 
Full of new ideas. 
Full of fresh energy.
And with this freshness new Patsy Brooches were born. 
Colorful and cute Patsy Elephants.  

Meet NEW Patsy Friends and let me give you one more hint . . . . more NEW Patsy things are coming . . . SOON!

You have to leave the city of your Comfort. 
And go into the wilderness of your Intuition.
What you'll discover will be Wonderful.
What you'll discover will be Yourself.

KEEP GROWING

"It is this constant motion we respond to. When our environment suddenly changes, a transformation takes place that is more beautiful than you could ever imagine. This is life.
An important lesson to learn is that energy connects us all. 
And we must open ourselves up to it.
Keep growing. 
Keep moving.
Keep living."

WHY THINK?

“But why think about that when all the golden lands ahead of you and all kinds of unforseen events wait lurking to surprise you and make you glad you're alive to see?”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road ―

I stand 
in total wonder
at the display before me.
The best things
truly come
when you have the patience
to endure.
