Today I saw three hawks - the first of the season for me though I have seen a lot of turkey buzzards. The hawk above had a partner and the other was solo. Their cries are a happy addition to my garden time. I've been outside a lot - poking around in the woods, doing chores, and spending a lot of time really bonding with this new growing season as it asserts more of itself.
Day before yesterday I was called to make a 'surprise' crown chakra remedy for the Dive people and continued life in the SLI repertory. Below the all important act of reciprocity has been implemented. Poured excess matrix back on the colony after returning the nine bowl flowers to the ground with each bloom tucked into the edges of the grouping.
Every year that I co-create in this way, the process becomes deeper and more layered at the same time it gets increasingly straightforward. By now it's a form of muscle memory as well as an ongoing prayer. Sent the captains a text with a pic of the bowl once the mother stock had been harvested and shaken to life. Later, in the early evening enlivened by late slanting sun, Rory dropped by and played his harmonica for the colony.
Today I visited the special portion of the field's rock wall to repair the stone prayer stacks and a few new layers to one of the stacks. While I was putting stones back into stacks I happened to notice one of the rocks has grafitti'd a crossroads symbol - must be from the mineral deposits that run right alone the fissures of the rock.
I made this sun ornament during a family Summer Solstice crafting endeavor to commemorate our first Summer 'in the country' after leaving Boston. It's hung somewhere in the garden ever since. While living in this place, I've changed its location every year but I think it will hang on the gate from now on. I also added some miniature cowbells and a few crystals that had been a bundled gift from a friend - with each item equipped with individual hanging ribbons and rope. Didn't get this far last year but this year there's the luxury of more time. I plan to embellish the gate a lot more over time, providence willing.
