The other day I took Griffin for a walk down on part of the Galloping Goose trail
that is rich with moss and lichen and arbutus trees.
I was so taken by the many shades, textures and colours and I decided
to gently bring home some tiny bits of this vast world
to create my own miniature landscape...
I used this old, thick glass fish bowl that I bought in a thrift store in Seattle years ago.
Put some various shapes and sizes of rocks in the bottom for drainage.
I needle felted a few tiny sheep to settle in amongst the minuscule hills and fallen trees...
The variations of greens takes me back to my days in Ireland...

Jose Ortega y Gasset
So much in this world is walked over and missed.
When Dr Seuss wrote 'Horton hears a Hoo' I knew exactly what he was thinking.
