I spent part of the same time prepping a spread with various gesso's for Juliana Cole's offering through 21 Secrets. She likes to use masking tape to cover over a book page as she's altering it for journal exploration purposes. I like gesso. That is now ready for the next portion of the exercise which needs a quiet moment or two.

I played with the pine cones, pig nuts and acorns, but felt a real need to get outside. We walked into the woods, checked on someone else's Sacred Space and then created a Medicine Wheel for the day. I like Muck boots. They are perfect for fickle weather. (There was snow on the ground again, godammit! And I had to bring another rooster in.) Those same boots are fantabulous for crossing the woodland stream, bubbling and babbling through. In the quiet pool at the edge, we created a wheel in the shallow water. Such attention and presence making art where you are ~ using what's in sight. It is a different experience than having tools and no less satisfying.
