WRITING

Inspiration starts with a snapshot image and a question. For example, before writing my novel The Virgin Knows I saw a shortish, handsome man in a tweed jacket holding his hand on the small of the back of gorgeous tall, red-haired woman wearing a fur collared coat.

Did they love each other? What did the men in cafes think about them?

Satisfied n’ Tickled Too at The Taj Mahal

Being at the Taj Mahal was like walking over the surface of a postcard or being folded inside the interior of a book because the experience is an out-of-body one in the way that the visuals are extraordinarily familiar yet illusatory.  I've never seen such precise symmetry.

Yes. Ride an Elephant in India.

The elephant has a most auspicious symbolism: they embody strength and power, especially power of the libido and are seen as a symbol of great sexual power.

Why You Don’t Want to Hit a Cow in India

If you hit a cow with your car in India the scene will draw a very big crowd and cost the driver a lot of money.
