starting over

The inside is what I'm concerned with.
The inner self. I started over. I thought more about what is inside. I gathered winter branches. Balsam fir. Cedar. And wrapped them. They yielded. They seemed to like being wrapped into themselves. Springy. Light as birds.
Stitched shut. Bursting with life.
They smell like outside. They are female.
They are full of promises. They are full of memories. They are protection and nurturance.

  1. Judy, I love these. I love wrapping things... I wrapped herbs at one time, with string and thread. I can feel some work in my future, taking up vessels and wrapping again. Or at least its a river running by, if I choose to jump in, if not, I hope it will flow by me again and remind me someday.....

    I love the photo of the group outside against a tree. Like standing stones, like figures, both, wonderful. Inspiration, thank you.

  8. I love these deeply! Having had to move to the suburbs from a magical little woods of towering pines and old oaks, your tree bundles make me long for my little woods so much! I cry.
