Besides the 500 conversations I have with myself on a
daily hourly basis, I often have some kind of looped content streaming in the background Sometimes it’s a song (“a jitterbug”), other times it’s a quote and occasionally it’s a poem. For the past few days it’s been David Whyte’s poem “Everything is waiting for you”. But, while this prose has been going over and over in my head it’s sort of been inspiration for the things I look at, and take pictures of. I see something here in India and one of the lines comes up and then I take a picture. Or, I’ve seen a picture I already have, or a friend has taken, and I think of a line. So, since I’ve been unable to lay down a lot of words to describe this trip so far, I’ve taken the poem and the images out of my mind and on here. Enjoy.

Your great mistake is to act the drama
as if you were alone.
As if life
were a progressive and cunning crime
with no witness to the tiny hidden
