Photos of local farms & rolling countryside inspired me to complete the last 3 mini collages in my series of 6. While the photos act as reminders of the idyllic rural places I’ve been, these 4-inch square collages express how much I treasure the world around me. Some of these honor Mother Nature & others honor the farmers who work continuously to provide for the rest of us. We can no more do without them than we can the earth Herself.
When I see a stately sycamore or majestic maple solidly rooted with limbs uplifted, like congregants in Nature’s great cathedral, I stop to ground myself & raise my arms in humble gratitude as well. When I see rolling hills & broad patches of plowed farmland stretching out under the sun, I feel my spirit stretch across the earth connected to the earth below, the canopy of sky above, & the vast mystery beyond what I know or can possibly understand. I’m just glad it’s part of me & I’m part of it.
