Hello! This blog began with tales of trips to Malawi and India (2011)… 2012-13 was from Ethiopia (with guest appearances from Germany & Croatia). 2014 on marks the next stage of life: Boston, Massachusetts, USA… with further adventures from that home-base. And now, India and Tanzania!
The cover picture is from a mosque in Istanbul.
The name of the blog comes from a Baha’i prayer for service that I love:
“Make me ready, in all circumstances, O my Lord, to serve Thee and to set myself towards the adored sanctuary of Thy Revelation and of Thy Beauty. If it be Thy pleasure, make me to grow as a tender herb in the meadows of Thy grace, that the gentle winds of Thy will may stir me up and bend me into conformity with Thy pleasure, in such wise that my movement and my stillness may be wholly directed by Thee.”Baha’u’llah
