I just came across these beautiful words and imagery of “A young lady venturing Far North”

According to Inuit culture in Greenland, a person possesses six or seven souls. The souls take the form of tiny people scattered throughout the body.

I don’t know much about this yet, but the idea of six or seven souls sounds almost overbearing. With just one soul, you can feel enough love, and in times of sorrow, too much pain. Just a thought.

I do love this carving of an Inuit Soul in the picture below. It has a fluidity to it. It is as if after rough waves had crashed onto the stone countless times, a soul had woken up from all the noise and pushed its face out for the world to see.
