(Yes, I do realize I may be taking a bit of liberty with the theme of s t i l l:body with some of these images. I couldn't help it.)
We watched Rivers & Tides (a little clip here) - the documentary about Andy Goldsworthy - with the kids this weekend. I don't know why I hadn't shown them his work before - they were so mesmerized, intrigued, and...inspired. Ezra made it only a third of the way into the film before he was up, putting his coat on and heading out the door to create his own 'something.' The rest of us trickled out one by one. And quietly, with the wind whipping the wet leaves all around us, and the trees moaning in the wind above us, this little 'something' was made. And truly, amidst the noise and the movement and the busy work of children and adults at play in the woods...everything felt still.
