November 1st, 2011: Third day of A Sewanee Pilgrimage

People around here are really honest, and also maybe not used to UMO's (unidentified mudmade objects) laying about. I received this message mid-day:

Hi Julie,

I was out walking during lunch and happened on a piece of pottery with a
tag on it. I checked out the website and saw it was yours.
The tag said that it was for keeping, passing on or leaving. I was not
sure if it was left on purpose by you or a student or if it was something
that had put out for class/photography. I have it in my office but if you
need it back please just let me know. It's really interesting.
Thanks.

Chris Waldrup

I have assured Chris that the "keep/pass on/leave be" instructions on the tsatsa's tag are in earnest, and hope to hear from him again.

Tonight, three sets of tsatsa photographs from Andy Daverman, freshman, artist, and Buddhism enthusiast. Just what I was hoping for: tsatsas in places I never go/sacred space marked in student landscapes. Thank you, Andy!
