Tonight there is a full moon.  I love full moon nights--the play of silvery light and the chiaroscuro effect of the trees against the moon.  I was out walking in the moonlight, and everything--the falling rupee,  the corruptions and scams going on around us, all the unpleasantness of the world out there seemed far away.  A perfect communion with nature.

I love the breezy, sunshiny days that come towards the latter part of the monsoon--the pre-Onam days.  The breeze is strong, just perfect for kite-flying.  There are so many butterflies--Onam is butterfly time.  Sunshine and clouds chase each other and sitting outside, even in the afternoon, is pleasant.
This video is taken outside our house.  We are very much in the town now.  But we are lucky to have so much greenery still, full of birds and animals.  Heaven knows how long it will last.
