Now flowing water sparkles, and sings, strengthened every time it rains. An occluded acre of the place has been opened up. At first it all felt too exposed; there was a sense of vulnerability. Now as the Indian Plum gets into full leaf, and the ferns begin to unfurl, it feels like revelation. Perception carries farther into the depths of the forest; dimension has been somehow doubled. The whole place feels larger—the invisible brought to light.

wow, congratulations on the sale of Ring Dance to the city. A pleasant surprise for a Wed morning. You should stop by the studio when you are downtown to check out the floor project downstairs we are just finishing up, using torn kraft paper. Decoupage on steroids.

I am thrilled about the revelation of Trickle Creek. Reading about it, I felt an answering revealation inside. Something previously occluded cleared, breathed and shimmered. Thank you for this joyous gift!

Congratulations, Don! And I love your work of restoration in that ancient and beloved area of our beautiful Sound.
