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.
