Dreams: intense and full of symbolism. Humidity: pretty high. Pollen: rather fragrant. Holidays of different faiths overlapping this weekend: several. Including, as my friends and I found out at the Hindu Temple in Sugar Land today, Hanuman’s birthday. I’ll let you google him if you’re not familiar. My own knowledge of this beloved figure is flimsy and stems from yoga classes I took almost a decade ago, so I have some research of my own to do.
But visiting the temple – wow! I’ve been meaning to visit one ever since I moved to Houston, or actually even before, when I first read Before We Visit the Goddess. And it was so beautiful, the marble sculptures intricate and full of symbolism. I will definitely have to go back.
