rituals from the banya
The story of Herbowski is truly a fable from the Banya; a lifetime held in the familiar and familial rituals found common to too few and obscure to too many. The idyllic liquor of pastoral makings, composed by a lifetime formed between the arcadian and the attentive. Here, struck by the fire and ice whose perennial past shares the same clay as the Taiga, the Banya and every berry bud in between. A liturgy backed by a family homed through the changing of seasons, where the beehives whose buzz composed the soundtrack behind a kindred dusty sun lay resting within the garden's herbs. The evening slumbered between the Dacha’s creaks. Steaming and steeped, the tea sits content. As do we.
