Yeah Mom never really got to travel, she had a nasty marriage too, survived only because she packed her kids and left. Otherwise I'd be visiting her grave the last 40 years. So yes, Nepal and Tibet have been at the top of her to-do list all her life.
I'm glad for her. Yes, Tibet has always intrigued me, for some unknown reason.
you most likely have been Tibetan in your past lives.. i have a strong line of lives from there and that region.. i feel a strong connection to the himalayas too.. le sigh..
You may be right because alot of the Far Eastern artwork and such has always intriqued me, as well, growing up I always had Chinese and Japanese friends. We just gravitated towards each other.
It's odd because I never liked the older gawdy red/gold Chinese wood carvings that I would see as a young woman in Chinese restaurants.
Well, this past weekend I was shopping and a Chinese lady was selling her entire Chinese wares store due to bad economic times (I told her how sorry I was for her loss) but I noticed two red/gold hand carved wood carvings (of peakcocks and flowers), as well as four picture frames of fish, birds and flowers she was sacrificing. She explained they are from her family's collection and well over 50 years old. After I told her I'd use them for my artwork she sold the frames to me for $10 each...the other peacock carvings were somewhat more, but still a steal.
I just cleaned the wood carving wall plaques and brought some of up the gold and red...very nice, so I don't think I'll strip them.
As for the picture frames, but I'm not sure whether or not to strip them completely..because one is painted in thick grey/blue paint, whereas the others are the same red and gold finish as the carvings.
Yes, if you watched Part II of the video I posted, the Himalyas in the background seemed almost surreal (misty) and would lend themselves well for landscape paintings.
They looking something like this...

Then there's reality.

Yeah...Whatever that is...Wherever that is...Whyever that is...
Hitting the ground scares the shitzu out of me.
Rappelling was a blast. The worst part was going over the edge on my first time. Going over the edge could still be sketchy after the first time, but not nearly as bad. Once you go over it is great. We used to stop part of the way down, tie off and smoke a fatty while we enjoyed the view. Ah, good times!

They leave that role to poor
