Offerings for a Forest Spirit

This winter, during a beautiful trip to a mountaintop cabin, I discovered a face carved into a tree, looking toward the house. I sensed power and protection in this face, and knew that many people had stumbled upon it before, and many more would in the future. As a way to give thanks to this figure I adorned it with things I collected from the surrounding forest, and let a candle burn for it.
