So, last night was the super moon and I wanted to do something super cool for ritual.
I did this once in India on the Ganges. I had to kind of guess how to make these leaf bowls. I wish I’d gotten a better shot of them in the daylight. Basically, I took rosebud leaves and glued them to an upside down cereal bowel so that when they dried, they would take that shape. Then I filled them with summer flowers and placed a candle in each one. These will float on water.
You can adapt this ritual in all kinds of lovely ways, but we make wishes and sent out onto the water. I can only imagine what people thought when they saw them down river 10 or 12 miles. If you look closely, you can see the moonlight on the water in this shot.
And then it was off to Rosemary & Thyme Bistro in Fairfax for a little cakes (bread) and ale (red wine).
