I could see and hear swans and ducks in the distance. The March wind was brisk. What are some things I was thinking as I waded out into the estuary? These are the prayers before and during: I am one with you, environment, river and sound, gorgeous sky and birds. Please, give me a clear path. I am humbled and awake. I appeal to my higher self. I beg, may I lead a constructive life, may I be disciplined against my temptations! May I be able to look upon myself and others with eyes of understanding and love! May I never forget to be grateful for the time, efforts and energy of all the people, of nature, of animals, the mud, the soil, plants, trees, sky, great spirits, beauty, air, minerals, water that contribute to my life here.

After I finished this it reminded me of the artist Bjork. It’s probably as close as I’ve come to coming to the Visionary Art aesthetic so popular in Seattle and around the country these days.
