Mia Culpa! My first blogging boo-boo. Forgive me Collette! I erred when providing a link to my friend and mentor Colette Copeland. In my haste, I skipped over that part called 'test this link.' OOps!

At this stage, I would say I'm pretty invisible in the blogosphere, though at this point I would like to disappear. Do visit Colette's blog though. It's like picking up your favourite book and being inspired each and every time. Plus, you get to view her pretty pictures and beautiful creations.

Namaste is a sanskrit greeting commonly used in India. You will see it used in my posts, and hear it spoken at the beginning or the end of a yoga class. It translates as 'I salute the spirit, or the divine in you'.

Birth of a Blog

Hats off to all blogging pros out there who figured this out a few years ago. As a late bloomer who has spent untold hours reading the blogs of others, I am indebted to the author of my most favourite blog, Bird-in-the-Hand, by Colette Copeland for agreeing to help me launch a blog of my own. As one who is in computer kindergarten, you can  appreciate the patience she brings to the table. Please visit her blog and you will see why I have been so inspired by her creative spirit and kind heart. Blessings to Colette and those who visit her blog and mine. Namaste.
