crystals.

a collection of treasured magic crystals found a frosty playground

 

“every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal,

a moment of time is related to the whole,

 happy discoveries

we found our way in and out of the corn maze

by following the grandies through the rows and fields

then found hot air balloons

followed their colors

past the moon and the trees

saw their beautiful flight and landing

 all on an afternoon spent among things raised from the earth.

 

“imagination is to love what gas is to the balloon-that which raises it from earth.”

– letitia elizabeth landon

“in any environment,

and the

are directly proportional

to the number

and kind of

variables in it.”

-theory credit: Simon Nicholson – The Theory of Loose Parts, 1971

dance ’round.

Standard

found the fairy woods and troll hollow
tucked away in the middle of the trees

when your eyes are open

there is always so much to discover.

“we dance round in a ring and suppose,

but the secret sits in the middle and knows.”

-robert frost
