Here I was just snug from the street to join an afternoon marriage celebration in a temple in town. I was offered a dish with delicious food and was treated as just another guest ( besides the kids that had a foreigner to check out :). Up to here it was just another wonderful experience of Indians sharing their most intimate family moments with a complete stranger.
An article I read this morning ' The ultimate couch pigtato' by Ed Kostro, from the 2002 'The almanac for farmers and city folks' gave me a point of perspective on our Awkward Moments. When animals are fed they live as friends, even the ones that would other ways be a predator and a prey. Do we stop to compete each other when we have enough food ? When animals are 'fixed' they stop fighting their own species gender mates. I would think that our intellect would help us control this behavior without a surgical operation. But then what other reasons keep us ever craving, jealous, competing and unrestful? Often not existential ones... we just make this ever ending madness into what life is about.
