Practically speaking, a life that is vowed to simplicity, appropriate boldness, good humor, gratitude, unstinting work and play, and lots of walking brings us close to the actual existing world and its wholeness.

”Katie Harris is photographed with her Appaloosa. Harris made most of the horse trappings as well as her own traditional outfits herself, including the bead work. Some of the trappings are passed down from older generations but the girls like to make their own to continue the tradition.”  Erika Larsen: In search of a horse, National Geographic

Gold Ivy and Fruit Wreath found in Chalkidike, Macedonia, Greece, late 4th century BC

From the era of Philip II of Macedon, Alexander the Great’s father. It consists of 30 gold leaves and two sets of fruit. Archaeologists have unearthed only two similar Macedonian wreaths. They claim that they were used by priests during Dionysus’ feast.

The word “hell” has a checkered career. In the New Testament, “Gehenna” [the term translated as “hell”] is the smoldering rubbish dump outside the southwest corner of Jerusalem. To be sure it has other, bigger resonances, but when Jesus talks about being condemned to Gehenna, the first thing it means is, “If you, Jerusalemites, don’t come the way of peace, your entire city is going to be transformed into a large-scale extension of your own smoldering rubbish dump.” That is the very sharp-edged warning in the gospels. Hell is actually something that happens on earth when people don’t follow God’s way of peace.

Very interesting also are the effects of fatigue, of temperature, of stimulants, and of poison.

Postcards are revolutionary. Derrida knew.

[A few of my Tumblr neighbors have sent me postcards, either of t heir travels or just for shits & giggles. It’s great fun to receive one. I wonder if there is a post card culture parallel to Tumblr.]

Devizes Heritage

Avebury West Kennet Avenue in snow and mist December 2010

An ‘avenue’, originally of around 100 pairs of prehistoric standing stones, raised to form a winding 1 1⁄2 mile ritual link between the pre-existing monuments of Avebury and The Sanctuary.

The ancient Ridgeway trail follows the chalk escarpments across southern England from the Wash to the coast of Dorset. The  Ridgeway is studded with prehistoric remains and hill-forts.

The intersection of the Harroway and the Ridgeway is probably one of the oldest crossroads in the world.

In America, violence and the threat of lethal force are the ways we communicate. Violence—the preferred form of control by the state—is an expression of our hatred, self-loathing and lust for vengeance. And this bloodletting will increasingly mark a nation in terminal decline.
