This is an excerpt from an annual ritual I create each January 7, the day after the Epiphany and the "12 Days of Stockpiling." Participants gather on the water's edge of Provincetown Harbor (Cape Cod, MA USA), sing, chant, and bring things to discard from their lives from the past year and put it on the tree/boat. This is floated out into the harbor by me, after the recitation of the Ten Commandments of the year, and burned at sunset. The questions are big, the questions are purged. New questions appear after the burning of the tree/boat.
