As an historian, I know that the use of the swastika predates the Nazi Fucktards by aeons, but I still always do a double take when I see it. In the buddhist tradition it actually signifies peace, harmony and eternity.

It is also seen as pointing in all four directions (north, east, south and west) and thus signifies grounded stability.”

My year in photos…This project began on June 21, 2009 and culminated on June 20, 2010. It is a year of my life, one photo at a time. It is going to reappear in a slightly different manifestation so watch this space. Thank you for coming along with me on this journey. ~amanda
