|East meets West|
The saleswoman had me hold several different size bowls while she ran the mallet around the rim of the bowls. They all had a distinct tone and vibration.
Then I heard this one......in the key of G.
It is 100-200 years old.
It comes from Kathmandu at the base of the Himalayans in Nepal.
It vibrated through my entire body and spoke to me. It was simply amazing.
I wanted it.
More importantly it wanted me.
It was singing to me.
I struggled with the expense and the "do I REALLY need one more thing" dilemma.
Mr. B just smiled and shook his sweet little head.
He knows me well.....
I asked the saleswoman to put in on hold while I thought about it..... she gave me a full week.
In 3 days, I returned and learned how to "play" the bowl. I tried several more myself but kept coming back to this little gem.
I decided to buy it and bring it home with me but first we stopped at Baldwin Beach for a swim and the sunset. When hardly anyone was there, I played the bowl and introduced her to the Lake.
She is a beauty huh?
Come over some time and play her!
