Scattered Eden: Testifying for Natural Places [Kim Stafford]
All Levels. Chinese painters brought wild nature into the palace with a deft image of a bird, a tree, a river tumbling off a cliff. Using writing, we will record our encounters with a healing spring, a chapel of shade, a wild meadow that blessed us, and other sources in memory that kindle a written record of spirited encounters with the wild. As earth pilgrims, we will bring to the page indelible escapes from the human world to sustain us in the form of stories, spells, poems, and blessings.
