We just finished a three page long DTC. Pushed the wrong key and erased the whole thing! Here it is again (Niscayad - NOI 3). Got to Santa Barbara after a long, hard trip. We are Tom Brown and Buck White, riding Brother Ass.
Every day in Houston was filled with Temple and MOE work, two to three hours, etc.
On the trip here we met Omir from Pakistan, a flight attendant, university graduate, who dreamed of becoming a Monk last night. To our Trained Ear (AGTSP!!!!) his story was so natural, so we told him our story (SB 1.6) and HAD A LOB IN OUR CMDD's BRIEF-CASE and gave it to him with the Web-page address and changed planes. "Write to our Blog!"
In transit between airplanes we got on The Last Great Window's Phone (LGWF) and booked a car ($243 for four days!) and then met Prof. Angelo and Christina Novokovitch in the Boarding Line. They were also going to the Jung Congress. She was Young, Beautiful, Intelligent, Intuitive (Battle Stations, Battle Stations, Alarms, Alarms, Kingon Cruiser 3,000 meters!). Taking our seat we noticed that all the women on the Executive Jet to St. Barbara were Young, Beautiful, Intelligent and dressed in black! Prof. Angelo came back our seat and ofered us some raisins and nuts from a newly opened bag.
At the luggage pick-up we met Prof. again and he walked us to the Rental Car Counter and hung out with us. We didn't have to say anything: Welcome to the family (Awwwk! Alarms!)
Into the rental car with a 71-year old Ass behind the wheel. Almost ran over three other donkeys on the way to Giri-vara-dhari-priyas Das' home.
He is very, very, very nice Gurjurati body devotee, disciple of Bh. Caru Swami.
Back in the car. Off to the Bank. Almost ran over six other donkeys: Can't send wire transfers to Peru after 1.00PM. Awwwk! The Congress is daily starting tomorrow.
Back to our Campsite: Fruit, nuts, raisins, 1955-historical documentary on YouTube. Crash (As usual, one week later, we still have Jet-lag!) and up at 11.01 PM to bashfully greet GPD going to bed (like a sane man).
12.43PM - Rewrote this DTC. Saved it to PND's Blog three times, mot just the clip board.
We feel guilty that we are not great devotees. Guess we are neither great nor gruesome devotees. Just devotees. We push when the modes are light with our Satsvarupa Goswami like character. AGTSP, we are all becoming great devotees.
CALENDAR - !! Today is Amavasya here, not in Delhi. Kapi-dhvaja goes out today with Viplavha, $$$ etc. etc. Will be time to wire money on Friday. Leave the conference.
Now let us find water. Sri Visnu. Sip it and chant five rounds, review ART Das "Art and the Sacred" video, M. Champaka-lata Devi Dasi's "Gurukula Standards" proposal, nap and FMP.
Hare Krsna. Rewrite. 1.00AM
