As imagined, back here, making that small cabin bigger in some different way… There were, already, 5 scraps “cabined” together. That left 4. OK. Perfect. A frame, cabin style. As opposed to my regular Frame of mind method. Like this. Framing is so interesting. Sometimes we do it without thinking about it as part of composition.

Forward. Just go forward. It’s a circle anyway. I cannot believe that this eye showed up as one of those crazy surprises, when you take a photo into the light. Usually there is an orb or something. Something is in the air. I ran outside, Soul-O close behind. Moss woke up. I imagined singing. That is my neighbor’s rooftop over the hill. She is not a people person she says.

Those two trees, a dogwood and a flowering cherry, I […]
A Deeper Place I have been in this Frame of Mind, working on this one for a long slow while. And slow rose up in my mind this morning, as a word, as a a concept, as the buzzword. Maybe slow is not about speed. Many times things catch on because they are easy, or they are an excuse rather than an idea.
