This was such a fun project for me. I love setting up and rearranging my collections of seeds and nests and sticks and rocks. I’ve had them piling up for ages– stones from my first trip to the beach (when I was 18– geesh), seedpods from my college days, playground gravel from visits to friends in Tennessee, sticks from an anniversary trip to Garden Valley Idaho one summer, driftwood from San Francisco the next summer, even shells saved from Barry’s boyhood trips to Ireland. These are the colors and beauty that make me dizzy with awe and gratitude for nature, fresh breezes, loving memories. It was fun to try to share the visions in my head with you all. Thanks for watching and commenting.
The nightly ritual. Arranging and listening to this. It felt so good to do something creative everyday that was simple and intuitive. I would love to draw or paint everyday, but for me it takes a lot of quiet time and concentration and I’m coming to accept the fact that this is just not the season of my life endowed with quiet time or concentration.
Now back to regular programming. I did do other things in February, so stay tuned for some catch up!
