(glimpses)- this story begins underfoot

How it’s rained! It has been all downpours and showers these past days in a grey world turning lush. Except for my impatience to start a garden (our planting zone must mostly wait until the Memorial Day weekend)  and feel warm sunshine, spending time inside nestling with a new project feels very good.


From inside  I  watch the rain turn the grass green again and branches buds begin to open.


I cannot help but think of all the enchanted fairy tales that sprout silently in the forest as once sleeping shoots and roots giving birth to a new story waiting to be written.


My daughter came home with this beautiful linoleum block she made. And while the print remains at school, I am very eager to print it myself  and see this lovely scene.


Impatient once again I think, but I can’t remember seeing a friendlier, happier little bat!

I  am gathering these small begins and drawing the landscape of the story that is soon to come. More soon!

  1. I remember doing the linoleum block thing in middle school and how I kept jabbing the tool into my hand. All of these are such lovely photos!
