To the End of the Earth

Intention 2016: to walk to the end of the Earth

Cape Finisterre, Galicia, Spain.

I will be leaving England in early May to walk along the Northern coast of Spain on the Camino del Norte to Cape Finisterre (Cabo Fisterra). I am currently collecting the objects, implements and vessels that will accompany me on the 500 mile journey; my alchemical tools perhaps. Although technically I am no longer a journeywo-man, being a maestra, I suggest that art cannot be mastered. Once again I will be setting out on an phenonomological exploration of 'my place in the world'.

  Hermaion 1 .  Scallop Shell (Pecten  albicans)  The ancient Greeks considered a 'lucky find' to be a gift of the god Hermes - the trickster god of crossroads, transitions and boundaries.. Hermions come in many guises, this one was found by a friend while we walked on Saunton Sands in Devon in October 2015.  The  Latin word  pecten  means comb. I have a feeling that I will be again travelling with mermaids.
