Welcome July!

I actually can't believe that we've slithered into July without a wink. 

I'm pretty convinced that the older you get, the quicker time slides by. 

Scientists have theories, of course, and one of them is that when you experience something for the very first time, more details, more information gets stored in your memory. Think about your first kiss.  

Neuroscientists say that since the touch of the lips, the excitement, the taste, the smell, everything about this moment is novel, you aren't embroidering a bank of previous experiences, you are starting fresh. Have you noticed, he says, that when you recall your first kisses, early birthdays, your earliest summer vacations, they seem to be in slow motion? 

I know when I look back on a childhood summer, it seems to have lasted yonks.  That's because when it's the "first", there are so many things to remember. The list of encoded memories are so dense, reading them back gives you a feeling that they must have taken forever. 

But that's an sneaky illusion. 

The more memory you have of something, you think, 'Shite, that really took a long time!'

Well, we are more than half way through 2014 already and its seems to have whizzed by in a fleeting flash.

I don't want to wish my life away, but I can't wait until the summer returns.  The sunshine and warm weather is calling me.

In the meantime enjoy the rest of the winter - I know I won't.  

I'm a grumpy bitch until at least mid September, when I eventually thaw out and my nipples don't poke holes in my t-shirts.

Don't forget to go enter my Caption Competition.  Two tickets for DSTV Kids Extravaganza up for grabs!

Um... I had something intelligent to say about Einstein and relativity and all of that until I got to your t-shirts. Now, I got nothing.

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49


Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

Oh wow... That's such an interesting theory! I always thought it was just me getting older and things slithering downhill faster ;P

The wife and I were having discussing that phenomenon during lunch at a restaurant one day. An older gentleman sitting at an adjacent table leaned over and said "Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes." Got to remember not to be drinking iced tea when older gentlemen start to pontificate.
