Normal Sights

Since getting calmed down and unpacked from our travels,

We've been looking back on some of the pictures we or friends of ours have taken of where we live.

What used to seem different, strange, or breath-taking...

Is just our "new normal" after living here for 3 1/2 years.

The Temples,

Everywhere and of every faith...

The Tea,

Whether on the beautiful green bush or in our cups, it is a way of life...

The Art,

Whether intentionally designed to tell a story...

Or just a scene of ten unique things about South Asia all in one lens shot

(The gods on the dashboards, the chickens on the bike, the broken down rickshaw beside the track of the Darjeeling Toy Train, etc., etc., etc.).

 These are our sights.

These are our 1.3 billion people.

Trying to figure out how to live here,

While praying for all the needs here,

Is our joy, and our burden.
