It is amazing what one can do in an hour with a chain saw, a back hoe, a shovel, and a big, beautiful, old, dead pine tree. My neighbour, Dave, leant his expertise and machinery to the cause yesterday and dragged a gorgeous old pine pole from a swampy roadside spot just down the road, to its winter home in the Field. This 'beacon' will become part of my winter installation 'Winter Gestures/Beacon Whispers' which is beginning to take shape.  More detailed information about the goings on in the field this winter will be coming so check back to see what's happening and how you can participate. 

Here, for now, are some pictures of the beacon being 'relocated' to the Field.
