angeliska Next stop... Bogotá! After a 5am flight to Pasto, we'll head out to the farm tomorrow morning. This will be my backyard view for the next two weeks! Feeling much calmer & infinitely more stoked about this adventure. Thanks for the sweet wishes, loveys... 3d

angeliska At the airport, about to begin a series of flights: Austin to Houston to Bogotá to Pasto & then the Renault to the farm. Had a gnarly panic attack on the way here, one that's been brewing all week after nonstop stress & scary dreams. I finally figured out why I'm so bugged out, though. You see, the last time I left the country was right before Hurricane Katrina. I flew home from a month long trip to Serbia/Greece/Spain & a day later evacuated. Life as I had known it changed irrevocably. It's not logical or rational that I'm terrified that when I come back from being so far away and (most likely) pretty unplugged, that either I or everything I love will be totally different, destroyed, lost. But that's PTSD for you. The Katrinaversary is in 3 days, & it's almost like my body knows - because I guess this happens in one way or another every year... I am breathing deep & trying to be excited about stepping way outside my comfort zone & hopefully finding some strange & wild magic out there! If I can keep y'all posted, I will - and if not, then I reckon I'll have lots of stories when I return... 3d

angeliska Behold! I hath made a birthday trifle for Jana! After ruining the first one, Miss J taught me how to whip cream properly, and how to fold. Patience and the difference between instant and hippie pudding? Still figuring those things out... 3d

angeliska The look of utter despondence, watching me pack. What am I gonna do for two weeks without my number one girl? Honestly, if there were any feasible way to take her with me, I would. Heart hurts from missing her already! 3d

angeliska Jana & Willie Dove negotiating butt-sniffing hellos with baby Moon... So grateful to have this wise wolf lady taking care of my home and critters while I'm in Colombia! I seriously could not be doing any of this stuff (traveling, adopting a puppy, surviving this hellish week) without her. 4d

angeliska I normally don't take many pictures of food, but this plate was so beautiful, colorful, and solovingly prepared by my dear friend Jana who has been staying with me recently, that I couldn't resist! I am so lucky to have such a kind person in my life who helps me so much, nurtures me and teaches me things and has so patiently put up with my grumpiness lately! I'm tryin' to be worthy! 4d

angeliska So... Is five books too many for two weeks? I mean, the Galeano books are three in a trilogy, so it's basically one book, right? And the other ones are really really small and light... Chronic overpacker negotiations going on here. I read fast! 4d
  •   ohnofuture Galeano is the best, I want to reread that trilogy right now too! Maybe I will! Have great travels my dear. 4d
  •   crunchyshrimp I also chronically over pack. Chronically under read ;( 4d
  •   cleverpun If you have to ask... 4d
  •   anti_christ @angeliska OMG! You're reading about Shambhala?! I was studying meditation and Buddhism at the NY Shambhala center for a while. 3d

angeliska My friend Molly gave me this dress - it was her mama's. I guess you can't really tell from the photo how awesome it is, all hand embroidered loveliness... But this picture is for her, anyway. 6d

angeliska I fly away to the wilds of Colombia in a few days, y'all! I'd love to read tarot for any seekers before I hit the road (sky?)... Still have a few more slots available if you or anyone you love would like to come see me before I embark upon my adventure! 7d
