The phrase "Walking Softly" is a motto I strive to live by, and one that I hope is reflected in each piece I create. It relates to taking care of the earth, to becoming the earth. I once had a teacher who told me a tale:

He was canoeing down the Delaware River and decided to camp. A local fellow approached him and became an unexpected teacher. The man told him that to teach people about the earth, you need to be the earth. The teacher proceeded to have my friend lie in three different types of earth - the leafy moss in the woods, the sand by the river, and the mud that cracked and dried under the pressure of his body. As he lay there still, animals and bugs approached and dismissed him as part of their world. Then, his teacher unexpectedly stepped on him. This reminds us that the two-legged being is the one who must learn to walk softly in order to be one with the earth.

With that, I hope you enjoy.

Walking ever more softly,
