Love Note: 100Stone


I loved this project so, so much. If you haven’t had a chance to experience 100Stone by Sarah Davies at Point Woronzof, hurry: the figures come down Saturday, April 9!

100Stone is a public art installation of 100 stories of personal struggles with mental health, told in sculptural form. Much has already been written about it (here, here, and here, to share a few), so I’ll just say that visiting the figures is deeply spiritual. I love the way exterior forces – weather, tides, animals, people who love them, people who disregard them – have made their marks, but the basic figure remains. Much like each of us as we age, growing weathered but richer and more interesting for it.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!
