Well, Province, it’s time to hit the road again. The autumn landscape calls.

Province, the stone I installed in my hometown has been found. I left it with my grandparents because I miss them and wish they were here to watch this project evolve. But there’s a mystery around this stone! It was discovered on another gravestone, nearby but not where I placed it! Intrigue…

I’ll tell you something, Province: Ange and I spent a lot of time laughing during this last journey. I’m so fortunate that my sister has been able to join me on some of my travels. We make it good times.

Trees Are Sanctuaries

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.   – Hermann Hesse, Wandering

Province, I want to learn so much more about all of the plants! Do you have any good book recommendations?

Chief Poundmaker’s Grave

Province, the stone I left at Chief Poundmaker’s grave was found by Jamie Couillonneur and it will be shared with the students at the community’s school before it returns to Regina. This makes me very happy. The day I placed the stone was cold and windy, but the fresh rain brought out the essence of the land and imbued my experience with the scent of sage. Chief Poundmaker was an enlightened man, a skilled orator and leader who stood for peace; this stone is meant to honour him.

Silton Chapel

Province, one of the most wonderful parts of this project is watching people become more deeply engaged with the landscape. I’ve really enjoyed the process of discovery; how various people encounter each stone; how their perception of place is activated, if only for a moment. The choice to leave a stone at Silton Chapel was a nod to the value of our heritage. Silton Chapel is worth saving; it is a breathtaking space built by our own Clifford Wiens. I hope it will not fall to ruin.

Also, this discovery makes me smile, because Emily is a friend.
