Hello, Internet? It’s me, Lisa.
I’ve honestly been having a blast with this return to blogging. This trip proved the perfect excuse to get back in the habit of writing a little bit every day. And as I hope you’ve been able to tell, I’ve been having fun with the recounting of my days, flexing the literary muscles that’ve been dormant far too long.
But I’m starting to get concerned. The comments you’ve left have been lovely to read, and I thank you for them! But surely there must be more of you reading, right? Or have my travel tales gotten so woefully redundant that you checked out long ago? Say it ain’t so!
To satisfy my fragile ego and remind me that you actually are there, reading along as I go, I’m going to do a little shameless giveaway. There are so many markets, bazaars and shops in India that I have acquired jewelry and trinkets I certainly don’t need to keep for myself. I want to share the bounty!
Simple enough – leave a comment just to convince me you’re out there, that all these words are meeting with someone’s eyes, and I’ll pick one of you lovelies at random to receive not just any trinket, but your very own Ganesh, god of beginnings, of removing obstacles, of so much more, I’m sure. If fate doesn’t have our paths crossing anytime soon, I’ll even drop this little idol in the mail so it finds you wherever you might be.
So yes – I’m not above bribing you readers to make yourselves known. After all, if you’re not reading, I’m not sure why I’m writing!
