"Guns Blood Poison" , piece from my book published earlier this year #betweenearthandsky ...returning to the magic pen to find the way through to the present again...between past and futures lies the thing...looking forward to delving into these poems and new work from the road...lifting it off the page and into song. #poetry #writing #solomusicpronext #pilgrimage

🇯🇴 RUSSIAN PILGRIM SITE IN THE HASHEMITE KINGDOM OF JORDAN 🇯🇴 . . Pretty impressive for me to see how pilgrims take a bath in the Jordan river, at the place where Jesus has been baptized... . . This place has a very interesting history and background. His Royal Highness, King Abdullah of Jordan, offered to Russian president Vladimir Putin and the Russian population a big piece of land along Jordan river. It is the place where Jesus has been baptized. In memoriam of this event, Russia built a wonderful church on the site, and there is also a Russian Pilgrim Residence that accomodates all the pilgrims who want to come here and enjoy the peaceful and meaningful site. . . . #Jordan #hashemitekingdomofjordan #Giordania #Jordanien #Ürdün #MiddleEast #Orient #DeadSea #JordanRiver #travel #travelling #holiday #viaggio #viajar #reisen #voyage #adventure #instatravel #holysite #pilgrim #pilgrimage #religious

Sea of Galilee #ASBC #HolyLand #Pilgrimage Matthew 14: 25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. 32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” Matthew 15:29 (NIV) 29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down.

Day 19 After 3 days of rain, wind and getting soaked to the skin I started really early in the morning and when I turned around there was the perfect sunrise just for me. Words can't describe how happy I felt. There's a saying among pilgrims, though. The Camino provides. It gives you what you need, whether you know it or not. #camino #caminodesantiago #travel #spain #nature #pilgrimage #pilgrim #landscape #santiago #buencamino #hiking #peregrino #caminofrances #sunrise #happiness #fitgirl #sunshine #nofilter

The purpose of a pilgrimage is about setting aside a long period of time in which the only focus is to be the matters of the soul. Many believe a pilgrimage is about going away but it isn’t; it is about coming home. Those who choose to go on pilgrimage have already ventured away from themselves; and now set out in a longing to journey back to who they are.  Many a time we believe we must go away from all that is familiar if we are to focus on our inner well-being because we feel it is the only way to escape all that drains and distracts us, allowing us to turn inward and tend to what ails us. Yet we do not need to go to the edges of the earth to learn who we are, only the edges of ourself. L.M.

Despite the tension @ Gaza the last few days, we were able to visit the Temple Mount this morning. When King Solomon built the first Holy Temple in 826 BCE, he wanted it to be the heart of the Jewish nation—a place where people felt inspired to talk to God a place where no one would feel alone. "Please, God” he said during the Temple's inauguration, "Hear the prayers that are said in this place.” We wrote our prayers on paper and inserted them into the cracks of the Wailing wall - הכותל המערבי. Lord, hear our prayers! #nhtours2018 #pilgrimage #wailingwall #templemount #israel #hearourprayers #kingsolomon
Fascinating #daytrip to #Jerusalem . I'm not sure what I was expecting, perhaps naively influenced by the jaunty #LifeofBrian , but it was overwhelming chaos with pockets of beauty; sometimes togetherness but also division - in the whole day only one chap met my eye and returned my smile (and he was trying to sell us things...) We started out walking the #ViaDolorosa , believed to be #Jesus ' last steps, taking us through the dense souks, with one or two welcome outposts of calm, such as this square. #Israel #visitisrael #travelgram #instatravel #adventure #latergram #church #christian #cross #holy #pilgrimage #pilgrim #city #ancient #history #historic #architecture #stone #pattern #dome #religious #religion #christ #view #arch

Wild camping in Italy was challenging. Any free land is either privately owned, used for agriculture or so overgrown pitching a tent is impossibility. - On our first day back on the road after our time in Lake Garda we had a rather noisy sleep underneath a busy motorway bridge. - It wasn't the best nights sleep we've had but it was flat, safe and not far from the local supermarket. - 📸 @jordanharrisonreader
Our final morning in Lake Garda was blessed with a soft stream of sunlight that illuminated the surrounding mountains, casting them in splashes of gold and silver. - After a short period of rest, relaxation and a little too much beer it was the first time we had seen this part of the morning. It was a beautiful start to the next leg of our adventure. - 📸 @pedalling.painter.pete
We were up early on day 69 to finish packing our panniers and prepare for leaving Lake Garda. - The morning was free of the customary headwind that lashes Torbole on a daily basis. Our route took us along the eastern shoreline so the conditions couldn't have been better for our first day back on the road. - With the excitement fresh in our legs we covered the 35 miles to the south end of the lake in under two hours. Little did we know this overexertion after a period of rest would have dire effects on our bodies in the not so distant future. - @pedalling.painter.pete

Detail from the Dhamek Stupa, Sarnath. These exquisite floral and geometric patterns belonging to the Gupta period (240 to 590 CE), have long since disappeared from our traditional stone carving vocabulary. The collapse of the Gupta empire ended ancient India's golden age and with it came a discontinuity in our arts and sciences. Much died out; among them Hellenic influences in sculpture, Persian methods of stone polishing (which survived in India for centuries after Alexander destroyed the Achaemenid empire). Perhaps these patterns too suffered the same fate. Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh. 04/2014.

An aspect of the Dhamek Stupa at Sarnath. Massive; dignified; witness to Indian history. Originally commissioned by Emperor Ashoka to enshrine relics of Lord Buddha circa 250 BCE, it is said to mark the spot where Lord Buddha gave his first sermon. Only the basement has survived from the Mauryan era; the current structure was built circa 500 CE. The stone facing is beautifully chiselled and has geometric and floral carvings of the Gupta period. I was pleasantly surprised on visiting it in 2014, after a gap of 25 years; to see that amidst the ruins of the desecrated Monastery (Mulagandhakuti Vihara, where the Lord spent the first monsoon after his enlightenment, in meditation); worship has begun anew. Frequented now by many Buddhist monks and pilgrims from across Asia, Sarnath the village has become a town. But the deer park remains a place of peace and stillness, just as I remember it to be.
