INUKSHUK

It's time for our annual visit to Aspen Colorado. The mountains are calling. Like a magnet, I am drawn up the face of Aspen mountain each morning to tend my humble Inukshuk offering. I started gathering rough stones a few years ago with the intention of replicating the Inuit style monuments which traditionally were used for communication and survival. They translate literally to mean "someone was here" or "you are on the right path." They can also mark a place of respect or memorial for a beloved.
With the help of my daughter Danielle's boyfriend, Mahmood, the inukshuk we built in  2008 actually  survived into mid-summer 2009. My first mission upon arrival will be scoot up the mountain in search of the remains of last year's propped up model. I'm not holding my breath as I look at this photo.

Unless I figure out how to do mobile postings from my phone, I will be back the last week of June. By the first week of July, my Etsy store will be stocked with some of what you have seen thus far.
