Gather and Sort

Gather and Sort

Every season is special, but for me, fall is my favorite time to collect nature’s treasures. After all, everything is ripe. Still, I’m careful (and grateful) to gather only the fallen and the abandoned. Most of my gathering takes place as I walk to work (in the business office of an assisted living community). It’s a flat 1.3 mile route on the town portion of the Olympic Discovery Trail. The first half is in my neighborhood, and the other half…

Autumn!

Autumn!

We’ve had a full and creative year (plus some months) here on the Peninsula. Although you wouldn’t know it given my lack of posting. I must prefer the doing over the reporting. Here’s the thing… I built this website as we “moved north to make art by the sea.” I thought I would post more as a way to promote a business. But, for the time being, our day jobs are rather fulfilling, so pursuing a livelihood with what we…
