Stepping On Stones

Stepping On Stones

What’s older than rocks? I don’t know, but their kind of like money, when you hold a stone, it’s almost like all the places it’s been, all the hands and states it’s passed through, flutter through you like wingbeats. Well, a stampede of razor thin flutters blitzes around you and through you like a cloud of insects. The skin-smooth stones, and jagged sharp ones, pressing into your bare feet. The sand like a fleshy strip, before the formless lake. Sometimes they do’t have to be stepping stones, sometimes they just need to be ordinary stones, to step upon them.

I post a lot about trees…..don’t I?

I post a lot about trees.....don't I?

Trees capture my attention. I guess that’s why I post about them so often. Yeah…..that’s me lurking by that big dormant oak. I don’t know why I described it as ‘lurking’ it just sorta looks like that’s what I’m doing. Lurking. I’m not a typical ‘lurker’ well…by definition. No. I just really love this tree. But back to the title of this post: I apologize for my frequent posting about trees. But I encourage you to leave the house, go for a walk, and hug a tree! love a tree! meet a tree! because trees are strong, silent, important creatures. And they deserve to be loved, hugged, and lurked about by.

Found In A Sketchbook

The things I find in sketchbooks. I have scrawled and scribbled, and written and painted, I have crayoned and pastelled and everything in betweened in these sketchbooks. I think I was watching a show that was boring me when I drew this one….it was about a Russian lady and her son, going on an adventure to fight a rock monster. It was quite interesting actually, but I just wasn’t really in the mood, so I started to draw.
