Summer days feel full...I'm still thinking of ways to intentionally carve time for making.
These dozen mini collages began during a family movie and continued through a few innings of baseball...

We visited the zoo today. I fell in love with these beautiful sculptures created from plastic washed up on beaches. It is an inspiring community art project with a powerful awareness message AND the animals are just amazing. My photo record of these are my making for today...

There are so many meanings for collage - and many of them have nothing to do with cutting and pasting.
Today I combed through our photo archives to create this collage for my grandmother.
We celebrated Deedee's 90th birthday today.

I spent time today thinking and sharing stories about my time away at Shrine Mont. It was a powerful experience of community, participation and connection. The group continues and will celebrate with a closing tomorrow.
Even as I share and reflect on this time, I am intentional in reconnecting here at home too. My kids are celebrating the end of school. I went by Huntley Meadows to check in on my exhibit and reconnect with the people in that space.
I spent the evening at John Baker's talk on Celtic Christianity at St Aidan's. The many connections to nature and the wisdom and goodness of the natural world resonated in particular after my time on the mountain.

My sons and I timed out visit to Huntley Meadows to be there at sunset and enjoy the fading light of the long day.
The sky and colors were amazing...

I left Shrine Mont this evening after another full day of training with the staff for camps this summer.
In the afternoon, I took time for a labyrinth walk, a hike and some quiet space before the drive home...
...here's my favorite miss covered path.

Another full day of staff week here at Shrine Mont. It is exciting to continue to deepen relationships with camp leaders and to meet cabin counsellors today. I look forward to working with and learning from this group this summer.
This morning I walked the labyrinth and left a touchstone in the center on a stack of rocks left by another walker...

More lovely time for walking and enjoying nature here at Shrine Mont.
In our rest time I had time for a short nap and making a few mini collages...

Lovely to be here on the mountain at Shrine Mont for staff training. So far I'm inspired by all the people I've met.
I'm back to art on the go and made just one mini collage today...
