"The morning sky is gray with dense clouds. New ice, formed during the night, lies thick on the lake and rims the shore with crystals. They glisten now, but in the midday sun, they will turn to liquid. During the night, the snowpack on the mountain walls settled, firm and compact. With the full moon, the temperature has dropped enough to halt avalanches, but eerie creaking sounds come from the glacier as if immense furniture were being rearranged. As the day warms, snow masses the size of houses will likely begin again, breaking loose from the steep mountain sides, avalanching into the lake. For now, all is frozen into stillness."

The Apus Garden


Hiking upwards at 60-70 degrees to close to 14,000 feet.

On October 26, 2015, in an area above Calca, Peru, we climbed to near 14,000 feet to complete ceremonies of reciprocity to the Apus and Pachamama. The moon was full. The rainy season was starting. Clouds brushed the peaks and fog as thick as gauze blanketed the lake where we camped. 

In the next photograph, Guillermo is to the far left side; Sebastian in the center, and Santiago (J. E. Williams) is in the foreground to the far right.

Q'ero Territory


I returned to Q'ero territory on October 31, 2015.

We are ahead of the rain, though just barely. Mist spills over from the Qonapata jungles. The mountain peaks hide behind thick wet clouds. Lamas and alpacas, layered in several inches of wool coating, gaze peacefully.

Prayers to Pachamama


PRAYERS TO PACHAMAMA...

There is following and there is leading. This is alignment with all that is of the Earth. All that is the Universe. 

Become quiet. Centered. At one with everything and nothing. Forget the name of Tao.

"To experience munay, we must cultivate it through acts of kindness. It is impossible to possess munay. When the time is right, munay manifests. Munaycha means to walk in beauty."
