Banyan Tree musings...
This image is for all those of you who wrote such sweet things about the thirsty bird. I love trees.... and I flipped for this particular Banyan Tree in Phuket. I saw it in a different light, literally and figuratively, each time I came back to the old-fashioned resort of the same name, known for its exquisitely polite service.
As for all the Breaking News today.... ho hum. Tell me something I don't know, guys.
Absurdly enough, the fate of the missing chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh seems to be of very little interest to anyone. Compare the poor coverage his missing chopper has received to the sort of carpet bombing of media that had followed the chopper crash of the c.m. of Andhra Pradesh not so long ago. Howcome? No wonder people from the North East feel such a sense of marginalisation.... even isolation , from the motherland.
Guys, will someone please tell me WHAT Hillary Clinton has done to herself , virtually overnight? Did you watch her official statement on tv after the Osama killing? She was almost unrecognisable! That perfectly coiffed hair, the toned down make-up, and several feminine touches to her otherwise severe pant suit ( green scarf, matching beads). Hmmmmmm. Botox can only take care of that much. The rest?? If Hillary has had major work done, then for God's sake tell us who did it!!!! Competing with Michelle in the fashion stakes? Hillary is looking like a million bucks. Good investment, girl.
