"The Pascola leads the pahko or ceremonial fiesta. He is mischievious, a clown-not like circus clowns, he often says insulting or vulgar things, but they are also witty.

"When wearing a mask, the Pascola undergoes a transformation into an animal spirit, connecting people to the Wilderness World, to their ancestors, to spirits, to energy.

@StevenFan let us aspire to daring acts of tomfoolery (vulgar, witty, foolish) that open portals to the wild world, the untapped, untamable landbase — via these masked avatars carousing & cavorting here in mastodonland, until the gauze between worlds grows thin & the playful generosity inherent in persons of both places, embodied & disembodied, mindful & heedless, unite in rituals both reverent & irreverent that spill billowing into the realpolitik everyday.

@StevenFan full disclosure of my toot’s genus loci: this place/notion’s location (genii locorum: these places)

@StevenFan tried finding how to say ‘thank you’ in mayo but failed ;)
