Sacred Spaces (Birthday Books Vol 37 of 41)

This is meant to be part art journal, part travel book. In the modern world, ancient temples and monuments are often lost or in ruins. Still we crave –and therefore find or create– sacred spaces. In oregon (where this book is starting) Portland pagans dance around a copper stag in a park and leave offering at the collasus style statue of the city’s invented Goddess, Portlandia. A few hours south, there is a natural rock formation in the form of a 40 ft phallus that locals have dubbed “cock rock” and where lovers leave mementos or initials. A few hours North on I-5 is a replica of Stonehenge. What modern artifice or natural wonder has inspired your spirit or that of your community?

RE: Birthday Books vol 1-41. I was very excited to read about the bookmooch journal project as I usually celebrate my birthday with art/performance art madness related to the number in question. In August I will be a delightful 41 years wild. I have purchased 41 blank journals and am giving each individual themes. When all the wayward art has winged its way home to me, I look forward to a local celebration to share and enjoy these books with friends.
