We Were Here!
I like the contrast between this inukshuk and the city highrises in the background. Hopefully I won't be in an apartment building for much longer and will be able to move this one to a deck or back yard. In the meantime, it is also an altar for my balcony ceremonies. Yes, I hold ceremonies on my balcony. After all, 20 stories up in an excellent place for getting closer to the moon!
It also helps to make me feel more grounded as I look out at the same level that hawks fly past. This helps me to also become aware that no matter where I am, home is with me. My home is nature and I love having a piece of nature on my balcony, not just being able to look out upon nature from high above. It also reminds me to be strong and to remain balanced. This is sometimes the biggest struggle of them all. I am finding, however, that the more grounded I keep myself, the more harmonious and balanced I become. This is a good thing.
