"We take from the earth and say please. We give back to the earth and say thank you." says Julia Parker, a Kashia Pomo.
Giving back to nature can be to express gratitude or thanks. It can be to sing, play music. It can be to give back something natural like a flower...Today I gave back at a place in Berlin Grunewald, that is a "second hand" natural spot. It is a former sand pit that is renaturated and filled with ground water at the very bottom. Other parts are covered with grasses that shone silvery in that winter sun. My sound offering was accompanied by the rhythm of a woodpecker!
