I'm leaving for a metropolis in about 3 days with Kristin and my Mum. Here are some photographs from my last trip there, when it was summer, sunny, and blazing hot. We visited the aquarium, the SAM, went to the massive library, napped on ferries, ate sushi and gelato, wished we were 21, did some shopping, and wandered around a lot.

One of the major achievements of my life is that I am widely travelled, but only within my country, India. But hey, India is a big…big…big country. It’s not just the size that matters, but it’s the diversity of the country that’s astounding. You have different languages, cultures, customs, cuisines, dance and music, flora and fauna from region to region. So I just thought that I’ll dedicate some parts of the blog to my journeys across the country.
I know what you're thinking.
First cross-country skiing. Okay, that's fine. Not too dangerous.
Next Telemark skiing. Slightly more dangerous, but still nothing to be concerned about.
Now ski jumping? She's lost her mind.
Yeah maybe, except I wasn't the one ski jumping. I was just watching.
I'm not quite that insane.
This weekend was the 2012 Nordic World Cup at Holmenkollen.
I would like to share seven guiding principles I have found thus far in my life's journey.
The first stone: become acquainted with the intrinsic power within generosity, gratitude, compassion, loving-kindness, equanimity, and sympathetic joy. Use their inherent strength to abandon detrimental mental qualities and experience the subsequent easing of suffering.
The second stone: familiarize yourself with the inherent strength within intention; that is, each morning define for yourself a small goal to strive for that day with the knowledge that the characteristics of each daily intention accumulates and formulates the meaning and purpose of your life.
