    that's the story and for some reason. . .I think there's credence in the myth (just like all myths tend to be rooted in truth of some sort). When I traveled in Nepal and hiked around Anna P that story came back to me big time. No pun intended. But, yes, an overview of the subcontinent meeting Asia and up went the Himalayas indeed. Your thoughts read like an academic, perhaps a professor type, FarWetGirl? N'est-ce pas? Thanks for posting this most interesting comment and its relevance to the subject matter this diary series brings to the table.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

      what a wonderful experience that must have been. :-)

      The perfection of the analogy struck me profoundly the first time I heard the story. So satisfyingly apt. It always amazes me what we sometimes know without knowing. The land  had to have been in it's present form already when people came to populate it, and yet, they got it right anyway. So many levels we perceive and work on without awareness.

      Of course, it's still geologically very active and there are all those fossil shells, so it wasn't quite without broad hints. ;-)

      Thank you for the very kind words, I'm flattered. While I've had an academic bent all my life, I never finished accumulating the little letters that said I was sufficiently qualified to teach. So I just potter around and chat. ;-)
