    My Friends, I am going home for a little holiday...

    Dear Friends,

    You are all so wonderful and I want to pause for a bit to say how much I am going to miss you all while I take what I think is a well deserved break from Boulder, Integral Institute and the USA Wink [;)] That is right, friends, I am heading home for about 5 weeks in Sri Lanka. I leave in less than a week. This is my first time home in 4 years since I moved here to get involved with Integral Institute after being badly smitten by the AQAL bug. I am delighted to get away from the foot or more of snow here in Boulder (it is another heavy dumping again since last week's blizzard). Hopefully, there is enough internet in my humble and troubled homeland to stay in touch with you. If at all possible, I will definitely send some pictures of the 85 degree-sunshine over there! Paradise [ip]

    Feel free to post here updates about who is troubling who, who is sleeping with who Surprise [:O], who is pissed off Angry [:@], who left us for IIZaadz Wink [;)], who got fired, who resigned, who was hired, how Ken is doing Sleep [S], is Rollie staying out of trouble with the church Confused [8-)], and how many of you moved to Boulder while I was away? Promise?

    I so much wish that, if not all of you, some of you will one day come to Sri Lanka and share my culture, roots and meet my zoo animals (family and friends). If you are heading to the third world chaos, go with someone you know Big Smile [:D]

    Have a wonderful New Year, y'all and I will miss you!

    Much Love to each and every one of you,


    Nomali

    Traveling graces to you on your journey home, Nomali! Here's to a relaxing and sun-filled holiday -- a much-needed break from all the various blizzards of these past several weeks! May you return refreshed and rejuvenated.

    Love,

    Mary

    Namaste, Nomali.

    Have a wonderful, safe, sun-, fun-, and family-filled journey back home!  This forum may ring a bit hollow and cold without you here... but we'll try to keep the place warm till you get back!

    Best wishes,

    Balder


    May the boundless knowledge that time presents and space allows illuminate the native perspectives of your original face.

    nomali,

    your presence here at ISC has been truly wonderful through all the tumult of this year. it's hard to believe, but i'm actually looking forward to next year and to whatever may come. i-i may be a toddler, but it's learning. and i can't think of anything better you could do to prepare yourself for this new, inevitably eventful year.

    looking forward to more messages from you,

    ralph

    Hi Nomali

    And I thought *my* trip to Sacramento was gruelling, ha!  Have fun in Sri Lanka, you'll be missed.  You're such a gift to all the I-I communities (including IIzaadz).  Big Smile [:D]

    spiral out,

    p.s. I found a new picture of Ken's pet pig, evidently happy with his adoptive parents:
