Tree of Love Update

So how has the tree of love fared this summer?

On one visit someone had used the sign for an air-soft gun target.

When I returned someone had taken out the plastic pellets and closed the holes.
On another visit the bell was missing. A week later, the bell was returned and fastened with a new piece of brown yarn.

All the items I had placed at the base of the tree to create an earth altar were still there--even the little quartz crystals.

I was truly moved as I witnessed through anonymous gesture other silent keepers of the shrine.
