Just got back from India – I was there for three weeks, with my mum and then my husband for company – and had an incredible time. It’s such an intense, fascinating, difficult, beautiful place. I was reading Narayan’s translations of The Ramayana and The Mahabharata whilst I was there – both highly recommended – and thinking about samsara, incarnation, the meaning of life etc, etc, like any good poet…. (already written a poem since I got back: ‘Fever Dream in Varanasi’). In the meantime, these pictures show some of my highlights….
