“My body is being drawn into the earth-muscle, tendon, tissue and skin is being drawn down by the earth’s pull. She is pulling back to herself: she is taking back what is hers.” –Barbara Macdonald

Through the anthropomorphosis of myself into a tree, I figuratively become part of the earth. When exhibited, I ask that an evergreen sprig be inserted into Crone Royale’s cupped hands. Once again I am able to transform my fears, grounding them in the rooted trunk of an ancient spruce tree.
