Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton

Some time ago I found this photo of the Pacific coastline after a storm, taken by Ray Atkeson in 1967, on the American Heritage website (www.americanheritage.com). I wanted to share this beautiful example of Nature's art. Many thanks to Mr. Atkeson. I hope you enjoy it.
I enjoy art and like to look for it in the natural world. My craft interests include handspinning and most of the fiber arts, especially knitting, weaving, and working with paper. Other important things are my family and friends, my pets, nature, literature, poetry, music, history, birding, star gazing, museums...and the list goes on. In other times and places, I've been an archaeologist, taught anthropology, and worked in a living history museum, so I find all sorts of things to hold my interest and keep me entertained. I hope to share some of these things with you.
