February Flours...

In India...
there is a tradition
of creating intricate designs out of flour
or chalk powder
at the entrance or stairs to the home...
a symbolic gesture of blessing
and of good fortune...

While in the the East-Bay and City on Saturday
I found these tin templates at
the Tail of the Yak
in Berkeley...

The flower of the heart,
one of my favorite symbols to contemplate
and make,
came home with me...
and I spent this morning
creating good fortune...

and blessings
around the house...

and in my labyrinth...

and my day
was truly blessed
and full of Sonoma County
February flours of beauty...
