Letters from Luna – The Migration of Memory, Part II

by Rohini Walker Click here The Migration of Memory, Part I It’s the in-between time here in the Mojave high desert, as winter shapeshifts into spring. Calm, sunny days are peppered with winds so wild, it’s a wonder the house doesn’t end up in some other, other-worldly faraway. On days like this from my remote spot, the wide vistas swirl with haboob-like dust devils, and eyes smart and sting if you have to venture outdoors for some outlandish reason.   Today is one of…

Letters from Luna – The Daemon’s Vision: Continued Excursions into Soul-Making

by Rohini Walker In a previous installment of Letters from Luna, we began some initial explorations into the nature of the soul – what Mary Oliver described as the ‘Third Self’, and James Hillman, borrowing from the ancient Greeks, called the ‘daimon’ or ‘daemon.’ This is – for me and for countless others who place inestimable worth on a commitment of intimacy with what is mysterious, ever-changing, and vastly precious within us – a tireless topic.

Letters from luna: A word on the wyrd

by Rohini Walker A gentle summation of the year 2020, and – in here the U.S. – these first weeks of 2021, would be highly, deeply weird. We’re living in strange times. Yet, for those of us who have been paying attention for preceding years, decades even, and who recognize the cyclical, ever-in-flux nature of the universe, this weird, troubling moment in humanity’s story is unavoidably necessary. Radical change needs powerful pattern interrupts. It needs the seething underbelly of a…

Letters from Luna: Meaning as Quintessence

Scroll down for an audio version of thisinstallment of Letters from Luna. by Rohini Walker What does meaning mean to you? As I write this, I observe the various objects on my desk and environs. Things that I have chosen and placed around me for more than their externality; things  that, when touched or looked at, evoke a certain feeling or memory, called forth from within the object I am wordlessly communing with. Here’s an incomplete inventory: a small jade…

Letters from Luna: The Migration of Memory, Part I

Scroll down for an audio version of thisinstallment of Letters from Luna. by Rohini Walker There is a vision that lives in me from childhood, a tiny island amongst the larger land masses of time and memory. It persists, vivid and fleeting, mysteriously relevant. I know it wasn’t a dream, in the conventional sense of the word at any rate. My formative years were spent in India, before my family and I immigrated to the UK, just as I reached…
