Secret Garden

“From its own fetal curves, green fiddleheads produce ancient spiral formations. The fiddleheads teach me to unfurl my own lineage & experience patterns – examine them, be with them, and listen to their messages. The fiddleheads are gifted time-travelers. If I don’t learn the lesson now, the pattern will show up in my life like an unwelcome visitor. By meditating with the spiral in mind, I can focus my attention on re-encountering the old wounds differently and imagine a new possibility. The fiddleheads teach me the vitality of perspective shift. The fiddleheads teach me to respect the slowest micro-movement & own my way forward.” – Marie Varghese

“Just as certain creatures are the last examples of a form of life which nature has abandoned, I wondered whether music were not the solo example of the form which might have served —had language, the forms of words the possibility of analysing ideas, never been inverted —for the communication of souls. Music is like a possibility which has never been developed, humanity having taken different paths, those of language, spoken and written.” Marcel Proust.

“Those who dream of a great feast may weep the next morning. Those who dream of weeping may enjoy the hunt the next day. While they dream, they do not know they are dreaming.
