I created a blessing for this little pocket of nature in my neighbourhood. It's made from dried flower petals from a late summer bouquet of flowers grown in the area.
I have been building a relationship with this spot since the summer of 2021, when I was led to it. I love this spot, and the noisy silence it offers. Leaves and branches falling into the slow river, birds chirping and flittering, squirrels playing above.
I honour this space, surrounded by a fast and ever expanding city sprawl. I honour the big, beautiful tree growing here at the edge of a ravine, with its roots that make the perfect seat.
Over the next 5 months, I'll be hanging out close to home, further nurturing the relationship to this land I am on and creating ephemeral nature connected artwork as a way to give thanks.
