Flowers at Our Feet


"Rituals are the cornerstones we hold onto when the world around us crumbles. It’s the routine that keeps us moving, an automated step, one in front of the other, when we walk directionless through existence. It comforts us, holds us close, and connects us to those who have gone through the same experiences, the same struggles, and enacted the same rituals to cope with those ordeals. The repeated motions are an embrace through history, calling on the comfort of the familiar to guide us through our greatest celebrations and deepest sorrows. While the act itself can be intimate, the gesture – with its subsequent meaning and implications – are broadly accepted as a cultural form of communication. During times of emotional upheaval, the ritualistic act of giving flowers as a means of empathetic expression is cross-cultural. It is used to celebrate milestones of jubilation and express deepest sympathies, to physically manifest affection and well-wishes. While the specific floriography* may differ depending on region, the act itself is universal and has been practiced for millennia. We are bound to death in a ritual of unmatched finality. It is an embrace through history, connecting us to those who have gone before, and those who will lay the flowers at our feet. *Floriography is the crypto-logical communication expressed through the use or arrangement of flowers. The floral arrangement was designed by Molly Lucille. See more of Molly's work at"
