yesterday i visited the cloutie tree for the first time since last december. it's in a very exposed area,open to the strong winds coming over the mountains or off the ocean. but i was still amazed at how much "fraying" had taken place. most of the chiffon strips were reduced to the tiny knots where i had tied them to the tree. the words had floated away. only 4 words were left: heart, joy, laughter and complete. the tree is leaving me a strong message...


  1. Well this made me go looking! I usually have prayer flags bu had never heard of a cloutie tree. So lovely. Now I'll look for one here.

  2. I love the message it gave you! XOXO
