This is a night flight…
Fasten your web-belts dear readers. Tonight we are journeying across the web for A Series of Sandalwood Dreams. Let’s see if these dreams take us to a heightened sense of reality over the next 8 nights.
Perfume Observant readers may be able to sample something very special somewhere along this journey. Tonight we will meet Mr Purna who is so old that he now resides in the Pali Canon. Tomorrow we will visit The Perfumed Chamber, an ancient place shrouded in the mists of time. I have discovered that the remains of this chamber exist today. There will be clues as to how you can find recreations of The Perfumed Chamber in your own city, home town or village. After that we will explore the northern reaches of a continent that broke away from Gondwanaland many eons ago. We will be visiting perfume plantations and a thriving distillery which uses the principles of alchemy and modern science to turn your sandalwood dreams into reality.
We are starting with a mytho-historical story and this story begins over here at Basenotes…
Let’s go web-traveling.

Great story. Now I’m waiting for the next one.
Thank you for dreaming me with Azar. We will step out of the dream into reality in a couple of nights…
Jordan, I love that story, it´s wonderful. I am definitely in the wrong business! Can´t wait for the next installment.
Bloom as you were planted Val! I love having you in this dream.
Beautiful story, cheated and read the second instalment over on Basenotes. The story gets better, am waiting with bated breathe for the final stage.
Aha! This is the story I had hoped to engage you on with photography. I am sure we can do something together oneday someday.
I thought it may have been (shrug), life happens and oneday someday sounds as good as anytime 🙂
