A SACRED GEOGRAPHY:
Sonnets of the Himalaya and Tibet

Sacred Geograpy Sacred Geograpy Sacred Geograpy Sacred Geograpy Sacred Geograpy Sacred Geograpy
 

In the Spring of 1996 my daughter, Sienna, led me up the deepest gorge on Earth, to the walled Kingdom of Lo in Nepal's Mustang district, on the border with Tibet. I was inspired by the natural colors of the landscape as well as a thousand foot long wall of boulders etched with Tibetan prayers -mani - that was washed in streaks of sacred mineral colors. I made hand formed, pulp-painted sheets of paper. A book began to take shape.
