Snapshots From Here And There…..

Things are slowly coming back into its place but the pace is infinitely slow and sometimes it is very hard to keep patience. But I guess the glass is at the very least quarter full and I am extremely grateful about that! Reading is very very slow, and I have four books going on at the same time with varying speed of progress –

  • The Bengalis: A Portrait of a Community by Sudeep Chakravarti
  • The Hungry Empire By Lizzie Collingham
  • The Romanovs: 1613-1918 by Simon Sebag Montefiore
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling

I have made significant progress in Book 1 and Book 4 and Book  has my attention enough to become be finished soon, but Book 3….well, let’s not jump the gun! I have only read 51 odd pages and things may improve!

Naturally I have no review to share and no books or bookish things to discuss, but I did want to drop in and say Hello to everyone again and leave you with some pictures of my recent travel to Arizona. for work I fell in love with the Desert Valley of Phoenix, and it’s low hills and open spaces and a view to take one’s breath away! I leave you with some shots from the visit!

  1. Arizona is a spectacular place; i’m glad you got a chance to visit… since you last posted, google has made commenting more difficult… i don’t exactly know what they did, but now you can’t comment on a google site without having your own google account; at least that’s the way it seems… i’m not very competent on computers, but i notice that Cleo has been having the same trouble… and some others…

    1. Arizona is truly awesome…I so fell in love with its open spaces. I am so sorry you are having trouble commenting……is wordpress not syncing with Blogger?

      1. no, i did set up a google account just so i could comment, but even so sometimes the comments don’t go through…

  2. You were relatively close to me (relative is the key word 😉 ) Next time, let me know and I might fly to meet up with you.

    It always amazes me that people live in the desert, but coming from a rainforest, perhaps that’s not surprising, lol!

    Happy reading and lots of it!

    1. Yes…relative it is…lol. The recent travels have all been planned and executed very quickly so I had no time to inform or meet anyone. But hopefully I should do some more travel around Feb. and I will for sure keep you posted. There is some lovely beauty in the long arid landscapes. I come from a green place as well, but I still love the serene majesty of a desert
