"We heard the trees breathing, bushes whispering, the mumbling of moss; 

we listened to the secret tales of centuries past; 

we melted into every living cell on earth, recognized every dimension, 

and our souls were in equilibrium and peace."


"This is the way nature can be if you remain true to her.  

I wish you all the best.  Slitweitz."


Gnomes by Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen


Enticed by the gnomes and elementals in the woods around my home, 

I found and gathered: fungi, lichen, sitka spruce pinecones, blue spruce pinecones, 

tree mushrooms, moss, nest, deer hair, and a barred owl feather.
