SARASWATI


In Hinduism Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती, Sarasvatī ?, Tamil: சரஸ்வதி, Sarasvatī ?, is the goddess of knowledge, music, arts, science and technology. She is the consort of Brahma.[1] Saraswati is considered to be the "mother of the Vedas".[2]

The name Saraswati came from "saras" (meaning "flow") and "wati" (meaning "a woman"). So, Saraswati is symbol of knowledge; its flow (or growth) is like a river and knowledge is supremely alluring, like a beautiful woman.

BAHGSU JEWELS







***My queen makes amazing things... I was reminded about the joys of creations when we met some great new friends through a Chrysoprase ring Maggi was wearing that attracted the interest of a fellow beach goer. As synchronicity has it I made friends with her boyfriend on a great little left hand slab. Later that night Chloe bought 4 new rings and the joy the girls shared over these amazing gems was magnetic. If you have a chance check out these beautiful creations made with love and light . www.bahgsujewels.com

FRANCE / SPAIN 2011

***Biarritz is cozy
***Vegetarian delights
***Tudor stopped bye and as usual it was some great story time.
*** So good
*** I worked these fries up all year as the best ever! Luckily Maggi agreed

***Weirdness
***Core s air surf shop in Saint Jean Luis has an unreal selection of fine surf boards.
***Great event at Spyder surf shop in Montelivet, such good Bing love. Really a great crew on hand
*** This kid was of few words, but had many powers. His Dad was a gypsy shaper and I love this photo.
***Matt and Philippe are like brothers. They have fun and this photo is a perfect representation of that... thanks for all your help Phillipe, your the man.

***Regardless of what's been said about the French, France is a magical place. In fact I love it. The people are kind, food is good and nature is beautiful. Maggi and I arrived early to scope the famous markets, eat the best pomme frites in the world and meander in the lovely hippy vibes of Montelivet. Bing Copeland, Matt and Margaret calavani and Tom Moss came the next day and spent the first night in fine style. Wine, food and laughs. We made our way around the country, through Biarritz and our pal Dou Dou. All in All France treated us to its fine styles and summer wanderings.
