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.

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
