Playing by the Railroad Tracks on a Windy Winter Afternoon

Rail Walker

Saturdays should be spent outside.  At least for a few hours, especially if it’s 60 degrees in February, even if it’s windy and doesn’t feel like 60.  Thursday’s snow made the walking trail a muddy bog, so Emotikin decided to walk the rails. Bold, dangerous, carefree, adventurous. That’s what this Saturday called for.

Under the bridge is a river...

Call it the culvert, call it a river, call it a place to jump rock to rock, soak up the sun on a still-cold stone, daring the icy water to swirl too close.

Testing the Nesting for Mr. Mallard

Sea grass, beach grass, duck nest?  Perching here is warmer than the rocks.

Thought Clouds

If Emotikin thoughts were louder than words, what blue-sky-sunny optimism might be heard on this mid-winter concrete beach?

Ice Climber

Avalanche danger? Solid slush.  South face slope still knows what season we’re in. Wishing for spikes on my feet, skis, or a sled.

Fossils in the concrete

What were they thinking, this crew who placed the stones in the concrete berm? Did they notice the fossils in this rock and laugh, wondering whether anyone would ever notice this fine art installation?

Cross-section...We all have tree rings

What layers of life do we each have inside, secret saplings we grew beyond, now seasoned and strong?


Balance in the wind, poised on a pier, invisible cape, courageous.

Time Traveler

What if when you landed, there was a sign saying what year you’d arrived?

Today's play brought to you by the Letter S

Saturday. Sunny. Signs. Sings. Silly. Soul-happy. Seriously.

Life creates captions.

Thanks to Serendipity for the photoshoot location

Many thanks to Vicky Boone, owner of Serendpity Antiques and Collectibles in Longmont, Colorado. We’ve been driving by her store all year on our way to Crackpots to paint our pottery and this weekend, i remembered to bring my camera and my new 20-inch Venti Emotikin. After finishing a new coffee tumbler at Crackpots, Venti and I walked down the street and spent a playful hour perusing the antiques. Vicky has created so many wonderful vignettes in her shop that my imagination ignited. Such a fun Saturday. We’ll be back — next time we’re bringing Venti’s black top hat and some accessories to jazz up the pics. I highly recommend taking yourself on an Artist’s Date at Serendipity, or your local rendition!
