The Sut Nam part of this blog comes from the phrase or idea in Sanskrit that points to the true self, the part of a person that is forever untouched and whole. The Bonsai part of the name comes from a little box my husband gave me that contained the kit for a ready-made bonsai tree. Someone had given him the kit, and it had been sitting in a junk crate in his office for as long as I had known him. That is, until he gave it to me. It then sat on a junk shelf in my office for a number of years.
I have no idea where that thing ended up. Probably on a shelf at Goodwill. I finally admitted to myself that I did not want to grow a bonsai tree. So here is my bonsai, the very real project I do want to tend.
Most of the photos are taken by my husband, except the ones that suck. Those are taken by me.
Thanks for visiting!
