September 15, 2023 Turning into a shepherd

Okay, these are my 58 fellows herded into the sunrise fog; a quotidian activity I’m recently engaged. Until the end of the month I’ll be a qualified shepherd lady, hah.

From now on I’m living in Kabeliai village, by the Belarusian border, which is the birthplace of my beloved scholar Algirdas Uždavinys. I’m studying the (Egyptian) Book of the Dead, translated by him, herding sheep, and getting to know incredibly inspiring people of the area. Seriously, attending The Creative Pastures residency is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
