This time last year I was, somewhat ironically, too grief-stricken to go this. This year I am hoping to get there…
The second annual event of Living With Our Dead, a picnic among friends is on Sunday 13th November 2011 from 1 – 4 pm at Girrahween Park in Earlwood.
Please pack a picnic lunch and bring your family and friends, your living and your dead with you, for a day of picnicking, celebration and ceremony. There will be opportunities to make a place for those you are choosing to remember in your picnic, to contribute to a collective memory tree and to exchange what your dead have passed on to you. It’s a day for kids and adults alike.
Memory tree – You are invited to bring a small organic object to contribute to the creation of a memory tree- an image you are happy to part with, a piece of text or poem, a drawing, or something you make from natural materials. There will be materials provided to create your offering on the day.
Passing it on – You are also invited to bring something that has been passed on to you – a recipe, a handy or household hint, a way of doing something, a maxim for life or a saying? We’d love you to pass them on too. You will be able to read and exchange these life tips on the day.
We would love to see you there and please pass this invitation on to people you know who may like to come.
