Along the roadside on  Route 8B in Erzulie on the continent of Satori are some wooded areas. Sojourner’s Ground is a peaceful rest area and retreat. There’s a campsite among the white birch trees.sojourners_003

“We should find countless intermediaries between reality and symbols if we gave things all the movements they suggest.” (Gaston Bachelard)


Erzulie is the Vodou Lwa of love and women. There’s a diverse range of information about her online. An altar focusing on healing and positive aspects to honor her has been placed on the land.


There’s a water feature and pool which is a lovely place for sunrises.sojourners_014

Sojourner’s Grove has a small orchard of lemon and orange trees.


“Lift up your faces, you have a piercing need
For this bright morning dawning for you.
History, despite its wrenching pain,
Cannot be unlived, but if faced
With courage need not be lived again. ”
~ Maya Angelou


There are benches outside the orangery for watching sunsets. Fortunately the new neighbor, in the spirit of respecting the surrounding area, has planted wildflowers and provided more seating, leaving the view unobstructed.


When even more chilling is needed, there’s a sky pool with underwater seating accessed via teleporter which isn’t too difficult to find.
