Snowflake 15

Portland got a nice week of intermittent snow storms.

This Climate Spiral, as I call the altar, is made on this day of the people’s climate march, toward the end of a week of solidarity.  It was inspired by hearing about the water blessings taking place in Washington DC before the day’s events begin.

Contemplate, make your choices, add your unique voice.
