Berkeley Marina, Summer Solstice 2007
This was my fourth Tree Shrine. The Marina is a beautiful place with a breath taking view of the Bay, were you can see San Francisco, the Golden Gate, and Mt Tam in one deep breath. This is were I go regularly to run and meditate. It is place of peace and solitude for many.
I choose this tree because is was mutilated. I was curious why several of the trunks of the tree had been sawed off. It seemed wounded. It was a great day of ritual, reflection, and reverence. Strange though I went back the next day and my site was roped of like a crime scene?? That was disturbing.
