Over the past eight years I have chosen a word to be my guide for the year. A couple of years ago I decided to recreate a type of Tibetan prayer flag in order to track my words each year and after seeing it hanging in my studio I have now decided to treat it like a traditional prayer flag and hang it in the garden. Traditionally these flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom by spreading good will in the wind. As the images and words fade due to exposure from the elements, they are believed to become a permanent part of the universe a symbol of welcoming life's changes and acknowledgement that everyone is part of the cycle of life.
