FOREST MERGE – JULIUS RIVER
Hush; there is a calm peaceful quiet as the cloak of night sheds its sleepy skin and gives way to the dawning light. As we journey towards our tree I feel totally supported in the embrace of this ancient forest, from the lush green carpet of moss beneath my bare feet to the enveloping canopy above. We have left the world as we know it and entered a truly sacred space.
It is a very cold morning. The cameras are set in position and the paints are prepared as I take my position with our chosen tree. A gorgeous, tall, strong tree. I take a breath, close my eyes and shed my skin. A bird calls and the forest awakens, the merge begins.
