Place Corps Friday Digest: Intention

The Shawangunk mountains—we are headed here for our wilderness trip.

The Shawangunk mountains—we are headed here for our wilderness trip.

It's time to prepare for our Wilderness Week!


This week we noticed the work that went into the preparation of the garden--what wonder, what labor, what love! We are also noticing all that we still don't know--including deeper histories of place. How do we advance in two directions simultaneously? How do we move forward and backward? How do we heal futures and pasts? What will grow here now? What is seeded in us? Tonight brings the full harvest moon. A symbol of seasonal change. What is changing for us?

Our word for the week is INTENTION. Just like the seeds we placed into the dark, we too can send intentions tonight for the season ahead and the changes we want to embody.

"The more I see as I sit here among the rocks,
the more I wonder about what I am not seeing."
