>Lesotho on my easel

>Lesotho with “Just a Man”
In need of rest, my attention was again drawn to this work in progress.
I was a few days in Lesotho October 2008.
It was hot and dry and warm and wide and there were very few amenities. But the country had a purity and beauty, what has struck me deeply. It was expressed in poetic, Sotho, by the song of a man who went along to guide us caves with primitive rock drawings.
In this country you can taste, dependency, and attachment to the earth.
Red earth, dry earth, unapproachable nature. Too little water for a thirsty hiker.
But need to slow down, and the battle to deal with yourself, to maintain patience and calm.
“Just a Man” recalls the inspiration for me came from this Losotho man with deep religious awareness and respect for the power and immensity of the earth.
As there under our feet felt penetrated the skin and let dry feel what power you need to slowly, very slowly going.
