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.

The Baroque Church was powerful in creating a visual dialogue between art and the spectator. The Church was a sacred museum of art. Allure, persuasion, intention and the engagement of the spectator formulated an exhibition of theatre, where visitors were the audience. The theatre ‘pulled’ on people’s emotions and overwhelmed their senses.  The spiritual and the earthly realm fused together in this environment. The imagery awoke the consciousness and ‘entrapped the soul’ through illusions of transformation and transcendence. The level of engagement between art and the spectator was emphasized and elevated in the sacred setting of the church.
