Clearly, clearly in another life*time I was a scientist who walked beaches collecting shells for naming.
I was a scientist who harvested seeds for drawing, not for planting.
I carefully pocketed acorns & seed pods & hoped for the best as far as insects were concerned.
I tried to stay away from poison ivy & poison oak & Certain Evil Snakes.
Audubon & Darwin were Great Friends of mine but I only wanted the cast off pieces of old nature.
I did not want the need of killing things to look inside.
And to this day my desires are simple.
I want to look Close Up at the beauty of seeds & shells & left~over nature bits.
I want to share them with you.
