My beautiful encounter with the henna plant was as soft and delicate as henna has always been to me. I first smelt its sweet scent 100-meters away. it must have been the wind blowing in the direction of our vehicle, like a sign of the henna fairy saying ‘this way… you are on the path of my essence’.
Once i was close enough, this beautiful scent was so invigorating that i felt dizzy, like meeting the very essence of love in all its purity. my knees got weak and i had to sit on the ground. Mother Earth was calling me to ground my entire being and feel its energy, eyes closed.
There i was for an undetermined amount of time that seemed eternal, hearing, smelling, absorbing and bewitched by my entire surrounding.
When i was really, the sweet voice of my companion entered my ears, she whispered ‘are you here?’ i opened my eyes so gently to see what she pictured in these photos.
