about

from this to this. song and air moving, to speak about family and home, 2 homes that murmur within me. finding that the music i made with my new guitar and other things all spoke of one thing.

5 years old that first time, what stays: the immensity of my grandfather, my mother's father; thinking very hard and spelling the word "brown" right for the first time in the front room in jamshedpur; burning my fingers on sparklers at divali; the open courtyard at the house my father's family rented, the green light of it; the fish bone caught in my throat; the gas factory blowing up; my grandmothers, the smell of their saris, the keys one always carried, the quiet strength of the other, the stories she told me

other things: my father's brothers, as dear to me now as my own; my first trip away, to see and the worry of all of them, the kitchen at my father's house, always my favourite place, the picture i took of her waiting for a train, and tic tac toe with those beautiful boys,
somewhere in south india

calcutta; 10 days with out speaking in bodhgaya
the blood of family

so long ago, but feeling it all in my hands, feeling it guide me in making this thing that you hold

bless you
