Old Spaces Made New...

Until today...
the unfinished inner room of my basement
had a dirt floor...


While prepping the area,
Cisco and crew of FBLandscaping
found beneath the old stone slab
that supported the furnace,
the stump of an ancient tree...

 
It felt strange to be removing something
that had not seen the light of day
in over a hundred years...


I created a time capsule
to go into the dirt beneath the new concrete floor...
-A crystal-given to Milt
in the Loltun Caves of the Yucatan, Mexico...
-A piece of white sage...
-A piece of copal...
-A mold taken from an old key,
unlocking secrets of the heart...
-The prayer bundle, first placed when we wished
with all our hearts,
to live in this beautiful home...
-Notes and dates, wishes, and blessings,
signatures, and coins of America and Mexico...
were tucked inside the decorated chocolate tin...


I also made a glass icon,
to be embedded into the concrete...


marking the inner heart
of this home...


This old space,
made new...
