Since each of us was several, there was quite a crowd. Here we have made use of everything that came within range, what was closest as well as fartherest away. (Deleuze & Guattari, in the introduction to A Thousand Plateaus, 3)

A Prayer Wheel Quilt

Red Prayer Wheel Quilt (2005)
114 x 148 cm 
An old Tibetan monk tells me the soul has no memory; the dead do not feel their past. This is left to the living. 
 (Colin Thurbon, 'To a Mountain in Tibet', 10) 

It was on our first day in Kathmandu that we visited Boudhanath and walked around the base of the Stupa in a clockwise direction spinning the prayer wheels as we went.
