moment 14 || two stones and one blossom

Now is the time for gathering stones. My father and I scraped these up from the side of his garage a few days ago. A crate's worth of rubble, various sizes. Each one a heavy weight in the the hands.

At one point, we even found a large chunk of a fossilized shell, a fractured ammonite, Jurrasic life transferred to stone.

moment 13 || roadside sign

Last few weeks have been a blur of mundane academic activity: grade papers, grade final projects, create exams, grade exams, post grades, turn in end-of-term-paperwork, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
I failed to post this drawing from earlier in the month. Despite this oversight I plan to take time over this week to catch up with myself.

moment 12 || planner with unfinished sketch

What to add? Another self portrait, a human figure, a tree?
The emptiness begs to be filled with something.

Not very decisive today.

Ironically, this afternoon I plan to watch a modern version of the Shakesperean drama Hamlet and watch him squirm with indecisiveness: "To be. Or not to be."
