The large tree trunk lies on its side in the thickly ferned forest. The root system is torn out of the earth, all the roots unusually projecting into the air space around.


Curves, knurls, twists and contortions. Wood wrapping round stone, held in tension immemorial. Large chunks of rock are suspended in the grip of these roots, forever poised, waiting to feel the earth again.


And beneath lays the vulnerable earth, exposed, raw and tender. This previously protected area of the forest floor now faces the transforming elements the sun, rain and winds of the Pacific coast.


There is now both a roof and floor cavern and shelter here.


I gather metre long fern leaves, their fronds arranged in faultless symmetry along the stems. Mindfully, I lay them on this revealed earth, layering leaf upon leaf, weaving a carpet so that this may become a resting place or harbour along your journey’s path.
I scatter miniature fir cones gathered from around me, seeds of renewal and regeneration. In the depth of the cavern I stand a figure, built of stone, looking out from her vantage point, watching over you, bearing witness.
