It can be hard at times to know the path to choose. But any path which is undertaken with heart will come to lead in the direction of home.
Kansas City, Missouri, 2005
Photographic print with accompanying verse:
When we walk upon the earth, our footprints
send tiny tendrils deep into the soil.
The path we choose to tread then grows
to become the beautiful root of the soul.
Available as matted print or framed and ready to hang (shown at left).
No encounter with Mother Nature ever leaves us unchanged.
In Print with Verse, I try to describe the changes she has inspired in me, some that have unfolded over the course of years, and some as simple as repairing my outlook on life in an hour of golden afternoon.
My original poetry, along with an image of the encounter that inspired it, are matted together in a single frame.
The 15" x 18" mat displays an archival print in one window, with the verse displayed in a deeper, double-matted window below it, adding a sense depth to the print. The text is printed on a variety of handmade Nepalese, Thai and Indian papers, with imbedded fibers from mango, banana and other plants. Matting is 1/2" thick. It comes ready to frame and hang, inside a plastic protective sleeve.
The title and a description of the event appears on the back, along with information about the print and the handmade papers.
