Mindful, Day 112, Rock and Roll

Rachel and I had a first yesterday! I walked and she rolled in the Human Race, a 5K event to raise funds for our local county charities.  We had a fun time on a beautiful morning with lots of other people include many in superhero costumes.  We were not sure if her wheelchair battery would do 3 miles straight but no problems. It was good to have such a great experience together and I am proud of her for getting out there and making it happen.

Mindful, Day 111, Looking and Seeing

 My glasses laying on the counter took on a very interesting shape when the late afternoon sun hit them. I keep seeing some sort of strange animal walking. And this was before I had a glass of wine! Easily amused.

Mindful, Day 110, Possibilities

Working over the past few days on manipulating the new tree ring photos I have taken on walks of late. I am liking the change in viewpoint to an offset view.  Now I am go ing to do some variations to see what will work best with additional stitching or other techniques.  Sometimes I like this part of the process the most - when I get to just play with possibilites.

Mindful, Day 109, Two for One

The ferns are unfurling more each day.  And with some sunshine we get to see both the real and the graphic version!

Mindful, Day 108, Abstraction

 I walked past the cut log with the Cat Face marks again yesterday, shot it from differing angles and it totally changed my perceptions. I like the closeup above because it is so abstract and dimensional. And I like the one below because I no longer know what I am seeing immediately. I think the detail one is going to show up in some art work soon!

Mindful, Day 107, Standing Tall

The ferns are starting to unfurl in the woods. Some are already standing tall against the backdrop of the dark trees. I need to come back in a couple of days and see how far they progress. I love how the heads are all tucked in at the start and then spiral up and out.

Mindful, Day 106, Cat Face

On my morning walk in the woods I see this in a pile of cut logs. I see a cat face complete with a little black mark over one eye as well as markings for fur and whiskers.  A delight for the day.
