So You'd Know I Was Here

  1. Thanks, Montucky! The series made me wonder what kinds of human-things we leave behind...

  2. Natural trinkets are there for those who take time to look, and you are finding them. This should have been something you could have checked off on your 30 before thirty list!

    We humans leave lots behind, and generally its not pretty!

  3. Bill -- There have actually been a lot of "unofficial" thirty before thirty add-ons, and I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

    And yes, too bad about pollution and the like, but we also leave things behind like hair strands, and sometimes I wonder about the birds that pick them up, the nests they become a part of. Kind of fun to imagine!

  4. Lovely images, and what you mentioned about strands of hair reminded me of a rurual ritual out here. On the first of April we put on a bracelet made of red and white yarn. When you see your first swallow you're supposed to take off your bracelet and throw it onto the roof of your house. The idea is that birds will use it to make nests and although it is highly unlikely that a swallow would use it I have watched sparrows take them to line their nests...

  5. What a great ritual, Julian! I think many of us want to feel we are a part of things beyond ourselves. I might have to try this bracelet-making/offering next spring, it sounds so sweet. Thanks so much for sharing!
