FLOWER WALL! no.1
A gesture of appreciation for the Black Embodiment.
To my people, I offer a token of appreciation.
Flowers for your protection over me
for your care and nurture
for the spirits of my ancestors accompany me
I shall offer reverence
On 10/21/2022, I was involved in a very life-threatening accident, yet somehow my partner and I walked off unscathed.
One could argue our ancestors were watching over us.
By offering these flowers to myself, I can immortalize this moment and forever show my appreciation for LIFE.
The lives of those who have come before me
-The ones who protect and watch over me
but also for the life, they have given me.
The abundant life I embody because of the power they grant unto me.
Through their lives, I exist.
This Flower bouquet was bought at a nearby grocery store (10/17/2022) and refrigerated for a week. Although the refrigeration was an accidental and forgetful act, It served as a grand symbol for the reflections that came after that accident.
Today (10/29), I have fixated the flowers on the wall and secured them using brown tape and they will remain indefinitely.
