Over the Easter weekend we visited #yyj’s Woodwynn Farms Peace Garden. My friend and I had gone the year before to celebrate her birthday and to meet the artists, Deryk Houston and his partner Elizabeth Wellburn. Now we made another day of it that started by driving out into the country in a convertible. Our first real sun of the year made it more enjoyable and added to the carefree experience. I had two intentions for the day, one to celebrate my friends birthday in this way for a second year and to experience the meditation nest that Deryk had just installed into this acre garden.
The sitting nest! A spiral in to the center that has a beautiful bench to sit on facing a scenic horizon. Sitting down is this space can only be described as being at peace. A perfect reflection on how our space can create and experience.
