As humans we often anthropomorphize things in order to gain a connection with these non-human elements. When we recognize our Mother Earth as the ultimate Mother who unites us all and give her a place of respect, humans may learn to respect each other and themselves in the process. By providing words for thought and elevating what some might consider the mundane to sacred status I hope to foster a positive relationship with the Earth. Tying humans to the physical Earth as children of our Mother Earth via the sacred trail and its shrines will create a sense of unity.
Gratitude to the donors and volunteers who helped make the trail of contemplation happen.
