Choose one..

A month's job to cover for someone going on marriage leave. High point being the same premise as husband and other things like nature of job, money etc hardly matter primarily coz its kind of a short assignment at a time when I have all the time to take it on.

Except for one thing. Coincidently, there is a 10 days retreat falling right in the middle of this one month. High point is that I had been wanting to experience something of the sort(basically AOL kinds) for a long long time but due to scarcity of time, job etc could never find an opportunity. This one is a 10 day vipassana camp. Vipassana means to see things as they are and is one of the India's most ancient techniques of meditation. What do you think I should choose?


n here's the arrangement I have on my table today. The pleasant fragrance of the white ones is filled in the room and it has a lovely mesmeric charm...

Edited to remove one of the two pics. The one clicked with flash is better someone says :)

@Masood: Thanks, I deleted the other pic :) n I wish both the things were timed such that i could do both.. :)

@Iya: :) I am loving these flower arrangements too. there are so many colors available. & lets see how is my experience.. will share.

@CS: I can understand, all the while when i was working i couldnt do these things for exactly the same reasons...

@Amit: selective hearing problem here :)

@Dhiren: lets see what others say.

@Nancy: I am not even acknowledging what he said :P

@Aradhana: Hey welcome here and glad you liked the arrangement.

@Deepika: Ya, I have heard a lot about such retreats. I must give it a try now that I have time and I can sit quiet too.. There is nothing to loose while all our friends are teasing me at the mention of me going for this 10 day residential course where any sort of communication would be prohibited.
lemme come back and share more.
