Practice meandering towards the center of every place

Sisters Meal Festival-Guizhou, China 1997

These last days before I leave  are always the hardest-a mix between organizing my art, business and life at home, trying to make my bags lighter and focusing on my goals for the trip – how to go deeper – to see with feeling. I have been rereading”The Art of Pilgrimage”, a book I always look at before I leave .

I came across these thoughts and  I am printing them  to read each morning

A good way to begin the day…

The Five Excellent Practices Of Pilgrimages

Practice renewing yourself everyday.
