Hermitage, Nagali

Ancient mythologies generate strong feelings about the future, almost as though the earliest memories are simultaneously prophecies. Past events continuously repeat until they are accepted as prototypical. Repetition is a reminder that (the past and future) are firmly linked to each other, if not identical.
