Journey to the Heart of India

Submitted by Teresa Doyle

Westerners have been flocking to India for eons to experience all the flavours and colours of this amazing place. My journey was not as a tourist but rather as a student of Vedic chant, the oldest songs on the planet.

Storms of life

Storms of life

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

We survived the winter’s first real snowstorm. Last night the wind howled all through the wee hours, ice pellets beat noisily against the windows, and the whole house creaked and groaned uncomfortably.
