“For deep time is measured in units that humble the human instant: millennia, epochs and aeons, instead of minutes, months and years. Deep time is kept by rock, ice, stalactites, seabed sediments and the drift of tectonic plates. Seen in deep time, things come alive that seemed inert. New responsibilities declare themselves. Ice breathes. Rock has tides. Mountains rise and fall. We live on a restless Earth.”― Robert Macfarlane, Underland: A Deep Time Journey
Small, meditative abstract studies, made using environmentally friendly materials like milk paint and wood.
This series began on hikes through birch forests and climbing colorful rock formations of coastal Maine.

I've continued this practice of devotional intent in the local stretch of woodlands near my home in Pennsylvania.
