The Disappearing Craft of Hand Weaving in Varanasi

The first thing I notice when I get out of the taxi, besides the obvious commotion that is in most Indian cities, is the low hum permeating the air. It’s the background music to the honking cars and men hawking raw fruits and vegetables. A constant, soft click-clack in harmony with the energy of the ...

Wynwood Walls

I finally  had a chance to read this blog post.  What really struck me was his comment about reminding himself “entire to ...
