Picture of the Day
February 16, 2024

sarah's been busy weaving literally and metaphorically down by the river in tukwila, making basket-like sculptures with locally harvested willow. that's the material level, the nuts and bolts of stakes and strands, but there's also the intangible, the social ties that bind wherever people come together in common purpose. lately i feel like an aimless loner, so it was gratifying to become a thread in a larger pattern by helping her cut suckers off established trees in this tangle of willows at a secret location she has permission to access. my waders leaked, seeped ice cold bog water through the booties in frosty morning shade but the sky was blue and when the sun cleared surrounding tree tops any discomfort soon melted away. spacer
