a The Learning Garden: Grandmothers

Tuesday, March 09, 2010


A friend in my Cultural Theory class told me a story from his time on Vancouver Island. He is an MFA student and from the the Talhtan First Nation. He told me that one day he was on a Beach with some elders and he picked up a rock, one of the elders asked him what he was doing and explained to him that rocks our Grandmothers who like to watch over us, and that you should always be mindful when you pick up a rock and take it with you. When I saw this rock in the garden,it made me think of that story. If you squint your eyes it looks like it is smiling up at you.

Smile back
