Leafy: "What if I cut a bear in half?"
Kid A and YaYa in unison: "That would be really terrible, Leafy!"
Leafy: "But I would clean the knife!"
Kid A: "No, not terrible for the knife. (Laughter) Terrible for the bear!"
YaYa: "A bear is an animal, Leafy!"
Kid A: "Yeah, how would you feel if someone killed you!"
YaYa: "It would hurt the bear."
Leafy: "It's a bad bear. If it tried to kill me I would cut it in half!"
YaYa: "A bear is a wild animal! We can't kill wild animals!"
Kid A: "If you kill a bear, then you should be killed." (Overkill... heh heh)
Leafy: "MAMA! Kid A SAID..." and then I stepped in.
A conversation I was a part of:
Leafy: "What's for breakfast, oatmeal or mu-sell-li?"
Me: "I just woke up, I don't know wait-and-see."
Leafy: "What? (Laughter) "Who's Andsee?"
Me: "Nooooo. Wait. And. See."
YaYa: "Yeah. And Antsy is the lady who's visiting Cate."
Me: (Laughter) "No, YaYa, that's Nancy."
Chinua put together some beautiful calendars this year, and it's not too late to get them before the New Year!
One is based on Color in India.
One is a year of India Faces.
And one is a beautiful abstract collection of photos of a carnival he happened upon, back in Canada.
And here is a photo of a very strange poster that I saw in Manali this summer.
