NEW YEARS DAY, 2017
This post is simple, short, and totally relatable, especially for those of you that have done some serious cold weather camping or live in a home where dishes are done in an outdoor courtyard.
No one, I mean no one, really enjoys doing dishes outside in the cold, whether it be in a courtyard or campsite. She quickly did her task with great efficiency and not a word of complaint. I think she drew the short straw since the rest of us were inside busy making sogra or chopping veggies next to a crackling fire.
Once she was done with her chilly task she came back inside, snuggled up to the fire and warmed her hands and feet. Once her frozen extremities regained feeling and her hands started working again, she cradled a cup of chai and sipped it slowly to warm her chilled inner being.

I paint, photograph, and speak about wild places in an act of reciprocity that is as vital to me as heartbeat or breath.
My interest in the magic and mystery of the natural world lies at the intersection of art and science.
