On a cool Saturday morning, September 23, twenty mindfulness walkers explored Blackstone and Ashlan, Van Ness, Thorne and Swift, including the hidden treasures of Margaret Hudson’s art gallery, studio and home. Emotions were stirred from memories of a once thriving area of Blackstone and Ashlan now in disarray, needing people to give it attention.
In contrast, west of Blackstone, north of Ashlan, walkers noticed a lot of history, variety, liberty and creativity in the old and new homes. Many felt nostalgic visiting Margaret Hudson’s home which consisted of a pond, community garden, sweat tent and amphitheater. Over the years, Margaret touched so many lives through hosting school field trips and strong community involvement.
The smells transitioned from exhaust along the busy streets and breakfast from restaurants to clean air from all the trees in the neighborhoods, possibly smelling honeysuckle. Please enjoy the photos, and join in on the next walk! Wendy Forestiere
Note: Thank you to Wendy Forestiere for leading Walk 22, Yr 3 through the neighborhoods surrounding Margaret Hudson’s home and studio! Margaret inspires us all to live with intentional mindfulness, embracing the full spectrum of life, and noticing the details of light and life. Photos from Wendy and other walkers capture that full spectrum right in the heart of central Fresno. Welcome to the new walkers I see in the group photo! See you next week. Lori Clanton.
