Detail of India - Reflections on an Amaranthine Journey
India leaves no one unaffected. During an adventure postponed for decades Lene takes on the otherness of India. Unconventionally and with a sense of humor and perspective she chronicles her encounters with naturopathy, spirituality, traffic, color, chaos, and curry. Writing she finds that memories, thoughts and dreams crowd in on her, insisting on being included. The result is a tapestry woven of the vibrant threads of past and present, here and there. Later, as Lene sits at her mother's deathbed, the lessons learned in India come back to guide her and, with a nod to Marcel Proust, the circle is complete.
