Opting for coziness, having that as your prime reason for existing, becomes a continual obstacle to taking a leap and doing something new, doing something unusual, like going as a stranger into a strange land. — Pema Chodron, The Wisdom of No Escape

In a few hours, we go…. First to Los Angeles, then on to Hong Kong, Kathmandu and finally Pokhara where we’ll transfer to 4-wheel drive vehicles for a ride to the foot of a trail leading up 1,000 feet to the village of Mahja Badahare, perched on the side of a mountain, the place we’ll call home for 8 days. No electricity, no heat, but hopefully a cistern filled with water at the end of our stay. I ask that you hold us in your hearts. You will be in mine. Namaste.
