Burning sage tsc creative

Burning sage   tsc creative
Was out last night so didn't have time to do project. Just pulled a few things together...shapes really and wanted to get the smoke from the sage but didn't want to burn too much of it. Hope you can see smoke. My little take on a quick creative.

Some have asked about the ritual of burning sage. Here it is.

"The ritual burning of herbs and herbal resins is common to many cultures in the world. From the rich frankincense of the Church and the Middle Eastern bazaar, to the heady incenses of Asia, to the raw energy of brush burning in many native cultures—the purification of space through this modality is a global phenomenon and one you can benefit from highly.

Burning sage is one of the oldest and purest methods of cleansing a person, group of people or space. While Native American sage burning is the most commonly recognized form of it today, it has nevertheless been a shared practice in other cultures too.

From the ancient Celtic druids who used sage as a sacred herb alongside Oak Moss for burning as well as medicinal purposes, to the Indigenous Peoples of the Amazon whose Palo Santo (sacred wood) sage burning ceremonies are still practiced to this day."

Yes, very nice and I can see the smoke too ... must say you were very brave tackling this ... I still have nightmares about the "hot drink" challenge - lol! ;)

I do like the composition and background, but I guess the smoke would have been more visual against dark background ;-)
