I’m really having a tough time getting back to my normal rhythm after vacation. Does that happen to you?
It doesn’t help that in addition I have been working feverishly on the next issue of Leaf (did you read the summer issue?) that will come out in September and (..and this is just as big…) my little people are away with their aunt for the week. I have never experienced the opportunity (since becoming a parent nearly 10 years ago) of having my house all to myself. I am revelling in the opportunity to clean with out taking backwards steps (it actually stays clean!), rid the place of things that they will never miss, and generally get organized on a way that just seems impossible with them around. It’s a ‘make hay while the sun shines’ sort of situation that will all be different next week.
Regardless, of my chaos, I do have a couple things to share with you today. The first is something that we shared on the Leaf Facebook page this morning. It’s an Arts and Crafts inspired etching (called lawnpaper) created by Steve Messam. It aims to highlight the role William Morris played in the birth of the environmental movement.
I’m trying to figure out the process, but according to Steve’s website it is, amazingly, done in an environmentally sound way that involves working with the natural growth colors of grass and a push mower. See more. – Rochelle
