Traditionally, amulets are an ornament or small piece of jewellery that give protection against evil, danger, or disease. In my contemporary interpretation these amulets embody the power we have as humans to pay attention to what is, and remain open to redeeming discarded things - be it actual objects, a situation of our making, parts of our mind and hearts we may have abandoned.
I hold with the Zen idea that the mind of the maker can be met in the made object. May our meeting of minds be enriching and fruitful.
