Got my woodburner in the mail this week and couldn't wait to try it out! This is a piece of driftwood, about 2' long. To attach it, I used eyehooks and a heavy twine rescued from a discarded cat toy, and looped it around a big tree. It reads "Hemel" (heaven). Third picture is a long view, but it's difficult to read. When I'm finished with this area, it will be my "little slice of heaven."
Here is my submission for this BB. Here is the sign that I made. Here is the post that talks about the significance of the sign, location, and the broader story. And below is a picture of the branded spot.
"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."
My sign isn't as neat looking as I'd like, but that's okay, I'll get better with time and practice. I also hope that by hanging up the sign on our garden fence, that others in the area will be inspired to "think vertically" and add their own public art, too.
Last year I branded Ash's bench at Wheaton Labs, and this year I made another bench to go with it. I also mounted a nice motivational quote on the bench I made, because I've always liked benches with quotes on them. Here's the thread I made about it.
“There are no words to express the abyss between isolation and having one ally. It may be conceded to the mathematician that four is twice two. But two is not twice one; two is two thousand times one.”
― G. K. Chesterton
