Memory

The most inspiring moment I have had as a maker came from an experience I had in Denmark summer 2016.

I was with dear friends in Denmark exploring, where we came upon this field of yellow, as the field itself was calling us to come. As I walked through the long stalks that came up to my shoulder I came to a small rough lane in the middle. We I closed my eyes I felt the ground below me and I could hear the beautiful song of humming- humming of bees inches away at work.

When I opened my eyes you saw a see of yellow, mellow greens and the bright blue sky. 

When I left that moment I felt as if I had lived a spiritual moment beyond description. I left feeling that the bees were thriving, the plants, the soil were thriving, and I was thriving in a way like any other. 

This moment is what I work towards as a maker.
