Reviewed in India on 9 July 2020
Little things stay with us, remain with us over the years....
🍃 Almost always, it’s the unexpected that thrills us.
⛅ It may only be a shaft of sunlight, slanting through the pillars of banyan 🌳 tree;
🕸️ or dewdrops caught in a spider’s web; or
🏞️ in the stillness of the mountains, the sudden chattter of a mountain stream as you round the bend of a hill;
🌊 or an emperor’s first glimpse of a winding river and the world beyond...
Delight cannot be planned for—she makes no appointments!
