wow! is most of what i’m feeling right now.
your book came this rainy day and i took it to the couch with a cup of tea (butterless, but in my bhuantese wooden burl bowl), and absorbed every page. what a presence this volume has - your “union of word and image,” enlivening the whole experience for the reader/viewer. i feel especially privileged to have seen some of the places and met some of the people described.
i love your writing style, karma -
so full of poetry, humor, and grace. and your essays are such moral tales - a rarity in contemporary literature - something from which we can all benefit, especially in these unthinking days.
and sandy! what exquisite, wavery images….and a beautiful palette…. and all those white flags in that ocean of sky. i have too many favorites to count. the same things i saw and shot, were something else again in your eye - transformed, elevated….losing the details so that all things flow into each other….. therein lies another lesson.
so thank you both for your great work.
