My niece, recently returned from Nepal, gives my husband a fabulous carved wooden mask of Ganesha - the Elephant God. He is known as ‘The Remover of Obstacles’, the' Lord of Success' and the' Deva of Intellectual Wisdom'. He holds it up to his face and we all smile and laugh at his transformation.....
Tonight we sit on the sofa with a bowl of little eggs wrapped in gold and blue, pink and lime green silver paper - one of his wonderfully abundant birthday presents.
What are these? he says.
They aren’t eggs though.
No they are chocolate - in the shape of eggs.
He unwraps one.
Do you know what Easter eggs are?
I wonder if I prayed hard enough to Ganesha he could dissolve my longing to talk to my husband like I used to .....because I'm afraid it could get in the way of my loving him.....
