Yesterday’s playful Daniel Smith watercolor mixings was so Fun!

  1. The one that starts with amazonite, green apatite is my favorite. I love things that hang. Things that hang or drip long tell me that there is more road ahead, there’s more to come.
    Streams and flowing things remind me to step step lightly, to breathe.
    Yesterday on my nature walk I touched the trees,
    I had to.
    Moss grew emerald green across bark, who knows how old.
    Red buttons popped up here and there
    Tiny purple flowers showed their faces and
    branches reached so far out I was compelled to reach back;
    even complex root systems made room for me.
    Yesterday on my nature walk I laughed with the trees.
    I was truly alive. Yes, I was alive.
