  1. There is such beauty and peace in this series. I do wonder how you happened to choose the word “stumble.”

    • It was the serendipitous timing of my stay which put me in mind of stumbling. Kurisumala was on my “to-do” list but the opportunity and logistical practicalities of a visit suddenly became very simple in an almost bizarre way. Everything appeared to “fall” into place..

    Such a beautiful study. I particularly like the way the little boy is perched on the stool

    The ‘U.S. Polo Assn.’ printed on the man’s sock is rather incongruous though.

    • Although of Indian stock, that little family were visiting from the Cayman Islands – which might explain his socks!
