This is where I stand.

And now, a quick poem about a grove I recently explored.

This is where I stand
Touching the tree
Feeling the energy that is hundreds of years old
This is where I stand
Rooted in her roots
EM waves going up and down my spine
Carrying a heavy weight
Even though it is all in my mind
This is where I stand
As one with nature
Not separate
No matter what
This is where I stand

Special Features: This area is a small protected area of Douglas fir old-growth forest within the Coastal Western Hemlock Biogeoclimatic Zone. Most of Vancouver Islands old-growth Douglas Fir forest has been logged, this small Grove is to this day in a critical state, as clear cutting around the site and poor resource management skills have led to increased blowdowns, erosion and other major concerns.
An interesting link about Cathedral Grove and old-growth forest preservation.

fotoMahaloness credit goes to Rebecca R, or Agent R, thank you for this nice foto, a rare glimpse of the person behind this blog, me.
In future episodes Mahaloness will be sharing more coastal moments, words and a new feature, about once a week I will be writing about an artist, other than myself, a way of giving back to those artists who have, and continue to, inspire me. Blessings and happiness be with you.

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
