  • The other day, well two years ago, perhaps 5 years; anyway I was walking, and stumbling along the beach (bad idea to wear flip flops that day); I found this stone shaped like an elephant. Well, you know, it was amazing because I love Ganesha; he had come to me in a meditation, and I was surprised because, well you know, I had never heard of him before; and I thought, this is a surprise.
