Today the scales tipped: stress outweighed smiles. My mind raced and I ranted. My new little manifesto flew out the window. I laced up my running shoes and hit the trails at a local state park. The palpable shift to calm arrived when the lush green space absorbed my angst and melted my agitation. At least for a while…
The sheer height of the trees always helps put life back into perspective. Nature’s gift seems to work for the teen crew too. These photos are from a recent forced hike. Key word: forced. They survived and later admitted to actually liking a few of my photos. The hike assignment was to find a heart and they delivered.
Which lead to creating with rocks! I covered a dozen rocks with tissue paper using Mod Podge. The soft paper molds easily to the shape of the rocks. Once dry, I added intentions with Tim Holtz rub-on words. Which one speaks to you?
