Groundwork counoise

Counoise 2015

Groundwork by Sans Liege

You’ve been hiking uphill for hours under a piercing blue sky. You are poised to drop into the couloir, the ocean a deep breath spreading in all directions 10,000 feet below, when you see the impossible plant. A plump red strawberry pursed above the snowpack. The wind has swept away the snow to reveal a small alcove of wintergreen, spilled violet liquor, white sage, toasted wakame and a packet of Luidens cherry lozenges. You breath it in as you jump your descent down the mountain to the waiting wooden schooner.
