This hand-sized piece of Cape Ann granite sits on my desk to remind me of the weight of places. My grandfather was born in a house built above rocks like this; my mother went swimming from them on the morning of the day I was born.

People can have landscapes which speak to them - this stone says to me, "You are still of this place." And I say back, "Yes, in part, in part."


I'm really loving your sketches. Beautiful.

Thank you for the encouragement, and for the visit. It led me to begin exploring your site: your work and your online journal. I especially love the quote on your entry page calling to me: (rise up) (look around you) (tell your story). Words to live by.
