audacious

that we go into a new year with such hope and joy astonishes me. 
i feel a great gladness that the holiday is over, i have a couple bones to chew on. 
thinking. pondering. drawing. and planning.
i took a walk out back yesterday and today. yesterday i slogged through seven or so inches of snow, today i had to work to find any. it's been crazy warm, and a little rainy. 
can you see how the weather has changed this rock? 
it's beautiful beyond anything i make. 
another split rock. 
so today i worked on a milkweed book.
i hope it happens, this birthing is tough going.

i got lost on the connections between the two halves of the chewed tree, separating yet not quite ready to do so...k.

splendorous rock!
we still have one more week of festivities over here as the big thing is epiphany or twelfth night. i'm already sick of all. the realm of too:too festive, too much, too long.

love all the photos, especially the 1st one of the curled and pleated leaves--more beautiful than any textile. And the split rock with it's lichen, moss and blanket of leaves. The nested blocks are charming. Keep busy, like the beaver.
