Strawberry moon of June, rising above our tree line as seen from our back deck.  Bright and full....

Found at Value Village: large handwoven cotton blanket, rep weave in some kind of diamond or star pattern.

Queen size with a border on all four sides. Warp is fine 2/8 cotton, weft is alternating 2/8 cotton and narrow rag strips of jersey.  The hand of the cloth is heavy and cool - great for summer nights.


  1. Wow - What a wonderful find at Value Village, this blanket is beautiful. Handwoven and looks like it is in great shape. Weaverly yours ... Barbara


  2. My immediate Solutions

    1. Ban porn for age below 16 .. Monitor it any cost .
    2. Educating the masses .. Not text book education
    3. More vigilance .. Be it police , video cams .
    4. Karate course for girls
    5. Girls should not be seen as burden .. Abolishing dowry system could help .. but it is easy to say , but tough to implement .
    6. Dont go out after 11 pm .. Dont say i am setting rules again .. i am a guy and even i can't roam around open after 11pm .. i know incidents from Marina beach chennai where men itself were stabbed .. With too much crime around , it is better to be safe inside.
    7. Punish the culprits .. No just the Rape cases , but ever case .. Indian Judiciary is in real bad state .. Salman khan is best example for that .. Damn he has at-least a crore people fans

    I used to think legalizing prostitution might solve .. But when i started reading articles and news about rapes in western countries .. i understood even that might not solve it .. And it can open a new set of issues .

    Lastly dont generalize every one ..

    The way you wrote the Hyderabad to Khammam in a Volvo bus incident .. You could tell he was going to do some thing for sure .. you wrote as if every guy who sits next to girl at night time travel in a bus does mistakes .. It is as if what i did was wrong .. damn i never touched anyway in my all this years of travel .. was that a mistake .. please dont generalize . It is a very problematic thing in India that people generalize .. They see as if every guy harasses women which is not so ..
