Pencil sketch, Walden Pond - Click image for larger view
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau

Carol and I have been hiking most weekends lately, and few weeks ago we went up to Concord, Ma. and rediscovered a bit of American History. I have been a fan of Thoreau since I was a teen, under the influence of my father who was a big fan of the New England poets and philosophers. Thoreau was required reading and I longed for a simple life in the woods..but have ultimately taken the other fork in the road. Carol and I hiked along the Minute Man trail and over the rude bridge that arches the flood. We have hiked a few rocky trails with friends and through the fall foliage around Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

I have posted well over 600 images on my Flickr page as I am still sketching every morning before work, and sometimes on the weekend. Still carving spoons and making things in the shop and doing a lot of photography, time lapse and 3D animation. . .trying to keep busy.
