“The moon asked me to meet her in a field tonight. I think she has amorous ideas.” ~ Hafiz
It’s always interesting to see how gardens develop over time, wind allowing.. in the winter months I normally consider it safer to leave small gardens standing due to freezing water. I love the idea of random people discovering something completely mysterious, with no agent in sight. This photo came about through 2 days of visiting this site. First day was spent learning the site and playing around with different shapes. Second day I came with intentions of expanding on the 2 balances I’d left overnight. I was pleasantly surprised to see both still standing.
The final garden came together through a bit of struggle in order to finish before the twilight colors in the air. Last balance on the far right was realized just as the colors began shifting into brilliance. The photo has negligible color enhancement, which is to say, the colors mixed with the reflecting garden was purely magical to experience… I went out yesterday with shear happiness and this vibration trickled into my creative process and the space around me…. It can be amazing to witness the way a purely happy, worry-free, state of mind can affect here and now. Another perfect example of Divine Alignment… Colors, balances, variety, reflections, playfulness, timing, mood, wind conditions, EVERYTHING figured into this magical moment in time.
As I write this I’m looking out my window seeing the arrival of heavy winds. The wind started last night just as i left the site. No joke, as soon as I stepped out of the creek to pack up and leave after dark, the first strong breeze rolled though and reclaimed one of the six balances. I was sure when hearing the wind last night that all balances had collapsed.. None of these pictures would have been possible if I started a day or even hour later.
