Meaning of the Artwork
I've been spending more and more time in the woods even though it has been hot the last few weeks. It is summer if we haven't forgotten on the calendar. Walking in the woods on a nice path has always been a source of personal meditation. The body is present, the arms are swinging and the feet are carrying me forward. A natural rhythm starts, allowing the thoughts to flow out. Left with an over all good feeling new ideas enter back in.
