geese are practicing formation
these guys got the straight line figured out
{goose stitch}
one early morning recently
i took these four photos
 a beautiful beginning
 i have been finding roadkills
that are coming into the studio
for a bit
then are buried.
 to honor and appreciate
is my purpose.
work continues on intergenerationality
under these books
 look and see,
contact printed handmade papers,
papers by genevieve nordmark lapp. 
for the 
hand papermaking intergenerationality portfolio
materials for printing
 and donna sakamoto crispin
made me these tiny rattles
with slippery elm bark 
and clam shells from her home.
 (i didn't ask her what's inside, 
can you guess?
