trail of footprints

Pada means foot or part of a poem and implies a step or passage in the course of one's spiritual or holistic life. Padajna is to know these sacred footprints, and pada-viya is the trail left by the pada journey.

I would not think to touch the sky with two arms -Sappho, fragment 52

Me: witchy, feminist, perfumer, curator, writer, former circus girl. reading poetry, studying dreams, exploring forests, reading tea leaves, watching birds, talking to the moon. curled up with tea & blankets.

A note: I prefer feed readers, so I'm probably following you there & not here.

Archaeologists Confirm That Stonehenge Was Once A Complete Circle ↘

Craggy Lake Erie, July 2014 

"My purpose, however, is not to explore the great cosmologies, but the small ones; and to suggest that art is a process whereby life becomes myth, and myth becomes life….For us, the journey is a central fact of our lives. Having set out on it, like it or not we have to keep on — to be heroic in spite of ourselves. Sometimes our most courageous act is to get up in the morning."

The Ceryneian Hind by Breeann Veenstra

Some photos from my recent travels. 

1: My amazing ability to pack nothing. Two weeks in England & India, & most of what’s in the red bag is camera stuff. 

2: This photo is me basically crapping my pants with nervousness. The flight out of London sat on the tarmac for nearly three hours because of a thunderstorm, & I spent the entire time freaking out, because going to India alone. 

3-7: Charminar, a Mosque at the centre the market in the old part of Hyderabad. Everything seems to happen out of here. At certain times of the day, prayers blast from it (& other mosques) on loudspeakers. Hyderabad is the most Muslim city in India. 

8-9: Holy crap the traffic. Cover your nose & mouth with a scarf to avoid the black air, watch what the locals do, hold your hands out in a ‘stop’ gesture to cars—as though this will help—& hope for the best when crossing the street.

Beware of the Ruins! by Przemysław Piela
Wałbrzych, Poland

"Here is the handful
of shadow I have brought back to you:
this decay, this hope, this mouthful
of dirt, this poetry."
