Merry Chritsmas and Happy Holidays from Markova!
Sunday December 14, 2008 - 57.1914° N, 107.517° E
I wanted to wish you all a merry christmas and happy holidays from Markova, Chukotka where I have been waiting patiently the last fifteen days for a plane to make my way home...
Not quite sure yet when a plane will be able to push through.
Taking into consideration that internet access here is quasi-impossible, I have decided that I will wait until I return home to share pictures and stories on the slice of life I am currently experiencing and sharing here with fellow Markovians...
On this christmas eve, let me just finish with a quote I read a few days ago by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche that very much illustrates what I currently aspire to:
"The everyday practice is simply to develop a complete acceptance and openness to all situations and emotions, and to all people, experiencing everything totally without mental reservations and blockages, so that one never withdraws or centralizes into oneself."
