At the suggestion of my son, I took to the rainy woods yesterday to look at the world through a different (camera) lens.

So with one of my trusty companions

and an enthusiastic audience

I walked gently through the rain, gathering inspiration for our ‘being (t)here’ classes in The School of Nomad Arts… looking forward to the ‘rebel stitching’ and ‘shibusa felting’ that will follow.

Thank you, India Flint, for encouraging us to be grounded and truly see our world.

“There is an ancient conversation going on between mosses and rocks, poetry to be sure.  About light and shadow and the drift of continents.  This is what has been called the ‘dialect of moss on stone’ – an interface of immensity and minuteness, of past and present, softness and hardness, stillness and vibrancy, yin and yan.”

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer, from “Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses”
