Day 188 – Inukshuk

While this day’s project may seem simple, it carries with it a lot of emotions and meanings for me. Two years ago my grandmother passed away, she was one of the most influential people in my life and I felt a connection and bond with her that I’ve felt with few other people in my life. I feel that we shared a lot of the same qualities and when she passed, I felt grief and sadness that I hadn’t experienced before. A few days after her passing, I hiked up to my favourite lookout spot and built an inukshuk, a symbol to guide travellers back home. Last year, on the anniversary of her passing I hiked to this same spot and build another inukshuk.  Today, I did the same.
