Sunday turned out to be a near-perfect day for installing Boundary|Time|Surface at Green Point.
The day was full of high cloud, lightly overcast, and calm wind. Great light, and nothing extra to contend with that could have an impact on the completion of the work.
Had a FANTASTIC group of volunteers helping with the work of moving logs and extra rocks down the beach! Couldn’t have asked for any better bunch – and they were so efficient, the work went much faster than I’d anticipated – we were ahead of schedule by a couple of hours!!
My DEEP GRATITUDE to:
Anne Marceau, Michael Burzynski, Renee Martin, Lisa Liu, Shawna White, and Ryan Lacombe – and of course, to John Waldron, who has provided vital geological input, logistical assistance, and been an endlessly patient sounding board as this work has taken shape over the last several months.
Thank you SO MUCH for all your help and support!
We all had time to sit with the work, to walk up and down the line as the tide came in and started to take the posts down. It struck me how much more solid the structure felt than I initially anticipated it would. There was something about it that felt really rooted to the land, despite the rational understanding that it really was a fragile thing, that it would be gone in a matter of hours.
So many resonances.
And a silence about it, a stillness and a presence that held into evening and sunset.
A good day, and a remarkable experience of this place. Like no other.
