Story & Experience

Again, Autumn Van Ord and I went to Wyman Park in Baltimore City to have our Earth Exchange. We continue to feel elated that this park been cleaned up and cared for by the city. The pollution has decreased and they have set up areas that encourage wildlife – plant, bird, and mammal. We sat in gratitude. We talked about how sitting in nature sends us messages about caring and in this time of having to stay in, rocks represent the gift of just being.
