A word we’ve had written down: Fasciation. A rare and random botanical mutation where one section of a plant may section itself off and grow or reform in wild, new ways while the rest of the plant remains the same. The idea gave us pause. It feels particularly apropos right now at the onset of fall, amid a year that’s been both personified by uncontrollable change and utter stagnation. Sometimes your projections fail, turn upside down, and must be started again. What a privilege it is when we can wonder, reassess, and choose to do things differently. We’ll continue to be here, meditating on what it means to distill to the elemental and grow in ways we didn’t expect.
