Every year I go to Holy Island I am inspired by what people create from stones and driftwood. Arriving at Hokitika I was overwhelmed by a beach covered in all sorts of dynamic sculptures. At the end of this month they have a competition- what a wonderful idea! The more concerning thought is how come there is so much driftwood and what is happening in nature that trees are so fragile. Rootedness is an important concept to me but I am seeing and hearing stories which suggest that it is a concern in many different ways.
