A few days later I walk past her shop. She yells out to me "Madam, look." pointing upward to a row of bags hanging. "Sunita, that's my bag. That's my design, you can't sell my design." She laughs. "you very good designer madam, good for my business."
I was in Mapusa market one afternoon, looking for a place to sit and have a coffee or chai. The sun was in its full expression and i was hot and sweating. The smells of Indian spices pierced the thick air; cumin, garam masala, mint, and cardamom and the density of the crowd of people - feeling like they all wanted a something from me - felt oppressive.
I made a playlist of music that I've been carrying with me on my journey. Soulful tunes that might not have much Indian mantra but certainly leave me with that 'oh so relaxed' vibe. Perfect for train journeys, chilly nights with a lover, a long yoga practice or for riding your scooter with the sun on your face and the wind in your hair.

Usually better.
The ironic, or cool thing about all of it, though, is that when all all that good comes your way, and everything arrives if does just feel like magic just fell in your life.

I was arriving near sundown and to my left, the sun was setting behind a large volcano, casting deep shadows on the rock wall to my right. We drove through a canopy of tall, lean Eucalyptus trees and I became nostalgic for my childhood and the long country drives I took with my family in my birth country; Australia.
