Sky Beyond Close Spring Leaves - Missoula, Montana

the intense 
fame of this 
daytime canopy

box would not 
be big enough.

Green Pastures - Corvallis, Montana

"...You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
You find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
You let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction...  
Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life...."

Fairy Chairs - Missoula, Montana

"Sometimes you will find mushrooms inside the ring, and these are fairy chairs that the servants have forgotten to clear away. The chairs and the rings are the only tell-tale marks these little people leave behind them, and they would remove even these were they not so fond of dancing that they toe it till the very moment of the opening of the gates."
- from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937)
