Sassafras Trees etching, Rick Beerhorst, 5x7 inches
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to get a way for a few days and stay with a friend who lives in the country. I took a walk into the woods each early morning and finding a place to sit down I would scratch a little copper plate doing my best to take in what I was seeing and feeling. I have always enjoyed a walk in the woods, but sitting down and making a picture takes the experience to a whole different level.
To sit quiet and listen, to be still and notice the patterns and shapes that happen between the trees and how they overlap is a powerful experience. This being in the woods helps me to get centered. This being in the woods helps me reconnect with myself. This being in the woods makes me wild again.
