7 Pictures Are Better Than Words

I recently returned from a 6 week trip to India, and since I’ve been back I have literally been walking around with my head in the clouds.

It’s like I don’t want to come back down to reality because the experience was so incredibly soul-stirring, the memories are still so moving and I have enough sight, sound and smell souvenirs (think colorful clothes, devotional chants and sandalwood incense) from my trip that I still feel so close to the experience that I don’t want to let it go…

It’s true I’ve been behind on writing the Urban Practice posts I have planned for you, but you can be sure that I have some good bursts of insight waiting to be shared in the coming weeks as I continue to process all of the learning I absorbed backpacking from one end of India to another.

Words can barely capture how beautiful India is and I get serious writer’s block trying to express it. In times like these, less is more, so in this post I will share 7 of my favorite photos from my trip and you can let your own imagination soar…
