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.

Day one at the Women’s Congress. A surprising amount of men speaking, & on topics like sex-selective abortion & subverting patriarchy in Angela Carter’s works.

Wish me luck! Two of my three friends who are on their way south from Nepal have been hospitalized because of food-related illnesses. http://ift.tt/1t6IYy0
