A Land Locked Wanderer

Hello - I'm Priscilla

Just an on-line log of me, following my heart across the globe, while my feet stay firmly stranded in the very heart of the United States, waiting to follow the Creator of it all on the next adventure. One part content, one part longing for something more again.

Feel free to escape with me.

The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life. It’s so easy to make it complex. What’s important is leading an examined life.

Artist’s statement: 

"This is a story about Tusheti - mountain region in the Republic of Georgia. Tusheti lies near the Chechen border and it is culturally closer to Chechens than to Georgians.

The story is about shepherds who travel every summer to their ancestors’ land Tusheti and than return to spend the winter at the bottom of the mountain. Twice a year they travel with their sheep through the pass in the Caucasus which is 3,000 meters high. 

I was staying and documenting life of the Shepherds in the Caucasus mountains for 5 years. These people have been cheese makers since before Christ. Their life is simple and harsh, but beautiful.”

Remember the simple life when the blank heart escaped free.

Envy

Jealousy can creep in so unexpectedly, even towards those whom I love and have genuine joy and pleasure in their acomplishments, victories and gufts and blessings. But it’s hard to stay content. I let my eyes wander. I forget to guard my heart and choose gratitude and contentment in all things. Ugh. It’s so hard. I do not want their joys, or their experiences, I want my own. I am not covetting, but mourning the lack of certain things in our existence. Unfulfilled dreams, and personal hardships can break you down.

Envy

Jealousy creeps in so silently. Even towards the people I love most, for whom i find true joy in their sucesses, and gifts, accomplishments, and blessings. It is so hard to stay content in all things, when there is hope after hope defered, and dreams left dormant. It is not so much that I desire the blessings someone else has received, as it is that I am mourning the lack of it in my own sittuation. I am richly blessed. I know that. Yet there are still the struggles. The empty cupboards and empty passports. The walls we keep hitting, the answers that just haven’t been heard yet. I forget to guard my heart, and I forget to cling to gratitude. To trust that His heart is just as much for us, as it is for these others.
