My current fascination is with stones and ceremony. Maybe you are familiar with cairns, those crowd-sourced stone piles that serve to mark the path of trails in out-of-the way places. (I say crowd-sourced because cairns are often formed by wayfarers contributing to the pile, one stone at a time).
I invite you to trust in your intuition as you move toward your own vision of stones and ceremony with pen in hand and blank tile before you.
I happen to have hiked a lot in the past 20 years in Rocky Mountain National Park and other places in Colorado, so I am very familiar with rock cairns. Since I am directionally challenged, there have been a few hikes where I was really glad to see rock cairns marking my way! It's funny, with all the hikes I have done, I have taken so many beautiful photo's, but not many of cairns. There is one hike in the Flatirons of Boulder that has a field full of rock cairns. I could not find my photo's and I am short on time today, so I did find this image of the place I am talking about online. There are so many cairns there, you can't fit all of them in a photo! Of course, I had to add a rock to one while I was there. Very cool!
I did my challenge on a tan tile and just drew my own rock cairn. Then I had a little fun taking photos of it outside. It just needed to be with nature! I liked all the photo's so I am sharing them all.
