6.5 Gloria and Dhardon - 27 October
Gloria Omuya and Tenzin Dhardon-Sharling talk about landscape, symbolism and pieces of home.
I think it has deep cultural, religious and historical significance as well, that kind of really takes you to the past, but makes you aware of what the present is. And we all have wishes for a future, right?
