Diary of a Rock Balancer ::

First visit back to boulder creek in months. Nostalgic feelings. A couple people stopped to say hi and even knew me by name, almost as if i’d never left!
This is one of my favorite spots on the creek. Bin building here for years. I still remember the trees like contours of my hands! Then I returned yesterday to see it blocked by debris buildup… old tree branches and garbage. Worst i’ve seen actually. Then it occurred to me that for the last 7-8 years i’ve been out here most days, each season, breaking up the blockages, and reinvigorating the flow of water wherever i chose to work/play. After an hour of force, i finally freed the space back to its usual flow. I even decreased some slight flooding on the banks! Now it feels alive again!
Now, considering all the dreamy places I’ve balanced rocks in the world, Boulder Creek still has that old magic about it that inspired this whole thing 8 years ago. Kinda felt like a sacred reunion of sorts. THESE are the rocks that trained me to handle most anything!
Meditation. Balance. Art.
