Grace Abroad

Grace and elegance go far beyond the realm of clothes. It is relatively easy to dress elegantly but to be elegant and exude grace is on an entirely different level. Often it is found in the most unassuming of people and in very unlikely places. During my recent travels in Sri Lanka, I have seen it en masse: in the dignified lady showing us around a tea factory; in an old woman selling fruit on the roadside; in the people labouring in the fields and not least in a blushing bride, ready to start a new chapter in her life. After all, Grace and Love are inextricably linked.

*sigh* I sometimes wonder if a personality like mine could ever manage to exude grace on a consistent basis! There seems to be an endless list of mistakes to make, complicated further by a knack for losing coordination at the most inopportune moments. :)
