day 1 of 8 on the mae hong son loop, over 1800 turns and switchbacks over nearly 700km...lookin super cool in our rental hemlets. we had such a lovely day naked in a waterfall and exploring the back highways of northwestern thailand.
260 feet up inside Buddha's head we found these men sculpting narrations of the Lanna tribe...they lay out the most crude sketches and create mind blowing sculptures.
the most beautiful hive among the work of Thawan Duchanee
the most confused pup in all of chiang mai
who knew my body could be so humiliating
aaand finished. many thanks to revan and the whole bunkyard crew for making our last few days in sri lanka so great. onto chiang mai! 🐍✨
i miss my studio
offerings to phra nang
bangkok is intense but i made some new friends today....always been so inspired by tribal silver works. ((eyelets custom made for me by forever babe @maidenvoyagejewelry))
month 2 of sobriety has reminded me i am an imperfect human. i am no longer elated or proud of the decision...my emotions are a mess, my self esteem feels lost + my will to create is almost non-existent. the previous neuropathways between addiction and pleasure that i laid out for myself will always exist + its a challenge to believe they will be repaired. each day kind of feels like walking in the dark, but i look forward to the time when the light shines back in, the calm resurfaces + i can get back to creating
healed on my friend @belle_tropique
After a chance meeting this afternoon we made our way up a rickety "staircase" on the side of a 500ft cliff. At the top, we found ourselves alone, among several teak coffins, at least 8 ft long atop wooden stilts, estimated to be at least 1200 years old. One coffin per family, one cave per village. There are at least 60 coffin sites among the caves in this region, and still, little else is known about how these made their way up there or who brought them. Vibrant shades of green and red were calcified all over the limestone and snake skins, owl feathers and so much more kept us there for hours.
day 3 we found the tiered waterfall we missed by 20 yards the day before, saw the hugest spider that was literally what my nightmares are made of and rode through fire.... lets see what day 4 brings. ✨
drinking allllll the fresh passionfruit juice and finishing up this snake tonight

hanpoke for my pal @benslow atop a mountain in ella.
another from this series. closing in on our last few days in sri lanka...switched destinations at the last minute and heading to thailand next!!
@ianlutzart expertly captured our wild elephant experience today. who needs to pay $70 for yala when you have a crazy driver to feed "traffic police elephants" watermelons and make his girlfriend cry
