Cairns, inuksuk. Markers of the Way. The round cobbles in the first scene are at Arletta in Puget Sound, my grandparents place. They were put there by glaciers, rounded by the glaciers, rivers and now sea waves. They are igneous rocks for the most part, born of fire in the north, moved there by ice, cooled now by water. The second set of jagged stones are in the North Cascades Mountains of Washington, as are the circumscribing peaks. Finally, the stream and Buddha are in the Appalachians at the Southern Dharma Center. The Appalachian Mountains were once mighty like the Himalaya, the byproduct of Africa and North America colliding, but they are ancient, and weathering and erosion have brought them to the the more gentle, green ridges that we find today. The final path leading into the sky and void is near Southern Dharma Center.
