LOCKDOWN

March 2020 – March 2021

I can hardly believe that we have been in and out of national lockdowns for almost a year now. I never anticipated that the borders between myself and my family would close. I would not have thought this project still relevant. 

It had never been busier in the forest-rich ridge where we live, people were walking, running and cycling, now they must stop, step back, people return to the nature that they have so long neglected. The skies were glorious with so little pollution. I felt as though I could reach out and touch the moon. It is as if the earth began to breathe again, I hope in this sense we do not go back to normal.

I also often turn to nature in times of need, I find it energetically recharging. Persistence to exist and thrive is as present in our veins as it is in all of nature’s forces.

Now as many experienced much earlier, the cold winter wears heavy. How much longer?
