hiking without happy meals; a modern paradigm chronicling the struggles, pitfalls,
& successes of life, running, writing, urban farming,
& home schooling in these crazy modern days.
Life is our classroom.
When I was in school and the Big Kids were little I used to create with paper & a good felt tip marker massive castles for them filled to the brim with haunted details: dangerous dungeons, peering phantom eyes, spooky Mr. Bones, crawling spiders, vine covered towers...
A few years ago I came across this collection of architecture stamps (2nd hand for almost nothing!) & fell in love with them for the same reason I loved to draw twisted castles.
Using a salvaged glass kitchen cupboard as our flat surface we created a strange new land.
Like a made-up story for a made-up land, last night was a warm & windy Halloween night.
Today, November 1st, rain appropriately turned to snow.
Not so story book for me, instead of getting well today, I am getting sicker :( despite the fact that I didn't go out last night.
That's okay though, I understand the building with the monkey on it is a good medical clinic.
And I am very well taken care of here in the land of make believe.
