#146 -- Pilgrimage

This doesn't have to be religious (but it can be). Is there something you'd like, in your lifetime, to go far to see? It can be a quirky personal journey to do with your hobbies or interests, or something very serious, meaningful, and/or spiritual. For example, I'd like to make a mango pilgrimage -- a mango world tour, to try every variety on the planet; I'd also like to go to Finland to visit Moominworld; and to Calcutta to meet the young girl I sponsor. I have a lot more; how about you?

Maelstrom's zombie percussionist is AWOL, supposedly on a pilgrimage. But what kind of pilgrimage would a zombie make? Ricky, their much-abused human manager has to find out.

This is the first time that I have ever blogged. My writing skills are rusty but with a weekly prompt I am hoping that that will change.
I just hope that I have done this correctly.

I've always thought that a Pilgrimage was a personal journey more than anything else and I've got an idea of the journey I want to take

I took creative license with this prompt. Although I did not write on this topic, I think of Martin Luther King, Jr. today and his amazing pilgrammage for civil rights!

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘sunday scribblings’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)
