An ode to the harvest, to mother earth, for her autumnal bounty.
A love letter in brass, to el maiz. To corn, which we are people of- intertwined through generations, bound in reciprocity.
An excerpt from one of my favourite books, Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer...
"Of all the materials, why is it that people of corn would inherit the earth, rather than people of mud or wood or light? Could it be that people made of corn are beings transformed? For what is corn, after all, but light transformed by relationship? Corn owes its existence to all four elements: earth, air, fire, and water. And corn is the product of relationship not only with the physical world, but with people too. . . .Creation, then, is an ongoing process and the story is not history alone – it is also prophecy. Have we already become people of corn? Or are we still people made of wood? Are we people made of light, in thrall to our own power? Are we not yet transformed by relationship to earth? As you reflect on this story, can you see our corn differently? Can you imagine, once again, the ways in which we are partners with God in the care of Creation?"
