THE GOLDEN THREAD
Leonarda BoughtonThe Golden Thread references the magnetic pull that brings us to a place. Here, we see the Apostle Islands and the shoreline along Lake Superior on the Wisconsin coast. This is the place that has drawn Leonarda near with its history steeped in Ojibwe lore and its ties to French explorers. It is in this Northland, where her Danish forefather landed and she now makes her home. The blessing along the spiral's edge was written in a 1700's map. "Heal the past, free the present, bless the future." It is as relevant today, as it was then.
