Barefoot in the Mountains

The High Andes

There is a song sung in Quechua by the women of the high Andes.  It begins like this:

“I walk without shoes in the mountains.  My bare feet touch the mountain.  The mountain takes pleasure in knowing my body.”

This beautiful world-view is reflected in a quote from the book Masters of the Living Energy, by Joan Parisi Wilcox.  ‘Andeans are born into a world that they believe is as conscious of them as they are of it.’

  1. It’s wonderful to think about… that everything we love in nature enjoys us as we enjoy them. Ayni.
