Happily, on a trail of pollen
may I walk.
As it was long ago, may I walk.
May it be beautiful before me.
May it be beautiful behind me.
May it be beautiful below me.
May it be beautiful above me.
May is be beautiful all around me.
In Beauty may I walk.
In Beauty it is finished.
"Songs of Ancient Wisdom Bell/Gong"
This piece is loosely based on the ancient nine-day Navajo Healing ceremony undertaken to relieve stricken people, and in a larger sense, to reharmonize and reorder the natural world. The songs that comprise the ceremony number many hundreds.
Cast in bronze and finished in a semi-transparent patina.
