About the Book
In the final year of Garland's first journey, we move South. We begin in Turtle Island (North America), where we find stories of gratitude, where objects are made as offerings. Next we return to India, this time the southern part, to experience the value of Uphaar, or love objects. Then we go to Africa, following the theme of umswenko, which is about looking good and pride in heritage. Penultimately, we revisit Indonesia, in particular the island of Java, to learn about pembaharu, or innovation, among a new generation of makers. Finally, we arrive in South America, where we step back, gaze at the stars and reflect on tiempo profundo, deep time. We made it. We have only just begun.
