a while ago i bought these two couches off some random craiglist man. we got to talking a little bit about India (i had recently gotten back and he was moving back - somewhere in the south, near Bangalore). I guess we had emailed back and forth about the couch purchase because he ended up on my gchat list. We talk a couple times a week. He took a job as a janitor at the ISKCON temple in b'lore (perhaps the gaudiest places i've seen in my life) and had become absolutely obsessed everything krishna consciousness-related. Today i miss India - silly, always contradictory, spiritually-fuddled India - a lot.
