April 20, 2021Portland is experiencing a stretch of sunny, dry weather. Spring is springing all over the place. I felt a bit creatively frustrated today so I decided to do another “alley bath.” This is a riff off of the idea of a “forest bath,” which is a mindful walk through a forest, looking, smelling, touching, listenng. Behind my house is an alley, a mostly dirt road where you walk past the backsides of peoples’ houses. It’s a bit wild back there, most people have privacy fences and don’t maintain the plants that spill into the alley. I wandered, shot video, smelled blossoms, and came home and edited this in a couple hours. The result is Alley Bath: Spring 2021. I feel better now, more grounded and connected.
