Chris and Jay leaned on the hotel railing, looking down at the bronze and gold fence and the estate beyond.

“Fancy enough,” Jay remarked, eyes drifting down to the line of what looked like tiny pots. “So what do think those are?”

Chris’ gaze followed Jay’s. His first thought was drums. It was not a serious thought, but his mind tended to see music before anything else. After a moment, he suggested:

“Incense burners?”

“Odd country this,” Jay mused, slight smile on his face.

It was the bands first time in India and the culture differences fascinated them all.

“Can you believe we’re actually here?”

“I always told you we’d be here,” Chris reminded him, breathing in the scent of a foreign land; a land he would come to explore and love in the years to come.

“Yes, Swami.”

They bumped shoulders.

“Life is good,” Chris said.

“Amen,” Jay responded.

And so it was.

Quote For The Day 8-14-2017

“Somewhere in the world there is a defeat for everyone. Some are destroyed by defeat, and some made small and mean by victory. Greatness lives in one who triumphs equally over defeat and victory.”
