Its been a  while… I know. Not many excuses, except to say I am in India for work and the internet has been very slow. I hope these photos make up for it.  xx

a few little thoughts from an inspiring reading and memories from Varanasi

Overtime the city has been compared to an artwork, a machine, a sculpture and a poem.

But it is more than these things on their own. A city is composed of memories, feelings, interactions, desires and passions. It is both a natural, built and thought entity shaped by culture and geography. It is a place where lives are told, where natural forces ebb and flow.

It tells a narrative about the people who live there and how they relate to the world. Together these stories make up a place and connect all who dwell in them.
