YIPPEEEE!! I FOUND IT!!! I have recovered the missing book manuscript file. Don't know why it didn't transfer to the newly installed hard drive in my tower, but I have learned not to ask such an esoteric question where computers are concerned. I'm just mightily relieved that over two years of work (not to mention it's planned for publication next year!) has not been lost. And thanks to all of you who sent out those prayers and good mental vibes; I couldn't have done it without ya!!
The Cloud Messenger (Meghadūta) is a lyric poem by the respected Indian poet, Kālidāsa. The poem centers around a yaksa in exile. Longing for his beloved, waiting for him on a Himalayan mountain, he asks a cloud to take a message to her. The sights he tells the cloud it will see on its way make up most of the poem.
The idea of recording observations appeals to me. I thought The Cloud Messenger was the perfect title for a blog about the journey that we all make as we move through our days.
