lotus

I saw a lotus today, too. An Amazonian lotus of huge proportions. And with that, a Blue Nile lotus, not yet open. Sacred to the Egyptians who believed that god sat at the centre of the lotus.

There is a lotus pond close by, currently going through its decay cycle. I love the pond, Indian people also. They visit often because the lotus is sacred for them too.

I visited a spice farm once, in India. There were no clocks there, only several types of lotus. The workers all lived on the property. Their days were ruled by the opening and closing of the various lotus flowers  – when to start work, when to stop for lunch, when to resume work, when to finish for the day.
