I love the garden in the back of my Grandmother’s house. It is a small space, but it has a certain energy to it, making it a good place to create and meditate. Each time I look out the window I see this Japanese maple tree, and it just takes me somewhere.
Lots of jewelry designs have been assembled from inspiration of this area, but one little visitor in particular made me laugh. He reminded me of the efforts it takes to get where you are going, and to never quit, even as ungraceful as it may be! I was inspired and decided to document him. Here’s what I caught :
He gets my attention here. Looks like he’s trying to go somewhere. He’s feeling the wall, gaining focus.
He makes the first step fine.
Distant shot. He’s contemplating.
Livin’ on the edge. I start laughing. Never seen this angle.
Here we go…
Patience Grasshopper. You can do it.
A great message delivered in a humorous way.
