Soulful Sunday :: Prayer Flags

prayer flags

The first time you see prayer flags backlit by the sun you do think they're magical.  You wonder who hung them  and you wonder what messages they sent into the breeze.  The more there are the more you feel like you're somewhere special.  Somewhere super charged.

I spent my days in Nepal looking for prayer flags.  If you looked out into the hillsides you could often times see canopies of them indicating a monastery.  If you were walking down the streets in Kathmandu you'd find them strung in the most random of locations.  If you went to a temple you could walk directly under them and watch them flap.

They're as elemental as their colors indicate.  Sky, Wind, Water, Fire and Earth.  The Tibetans believe that the mantras on the flags will be carried by the wind to promote good will and compassion.  I believe it too.

Soulful Sunday :: New Orleans Street Musicians

Hands down my favorite experience in New Orleans was wandering around the French Quarter just after dusk listening to the street musicians.  Man they had style.  It was a quiet moment among the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street.

I figured I better share.  I took this video right near our hotel on our way back from dinner.  

The gents didn't have a sign up with their names so if someone would like some credit please let me know!  I'd LOVE to give it to you!

Soulful Sunday


I didn't really know what to share with you this Sunday.  Something Soulful....Something Soulful....these words bounced around in my head and then I thought:  Hokusai.

I love this print.  Sometimes I look at it and it makes me want to go on an adventure and sometimes I look at it and I found it soothing.  I think that means it feeds my soul and gives me exactly what I need when I need it.
