our heart...

"Our heart endures between the hammers
as the tongue endures between the teeth
and in spite of everything continues to praise."
~excerpt from The Duino Elegies, by Rainer Maria Rilke

beautiful photographs of the Sadhus of India and Nepal now on view at the Rubin Museum...
Sadhu comes from the sanskrit word sādh which means "to reach ones goal", the goal for these Sadhus being to attain moksha (liberation) and renouncing the material world...they are mystics, yogis, and/or wondering monks....the painted markings on their face and body are called tilakas, each design and color having significance....

so weit wie noch nie...

'farther than ever before'...


at times, when things make sense, the don't, when they don't, they do, when you try to make sense of them, they become more elusive, and when you don't try to make sense of them, they can wash over you like water....
