Uncovering roots is a way of understanding what is underneath and what grounds us.
In grade school most kids will take a seed and use a paper towel in a glass jar and “plant” the seed and are able to watch the seed get roots. Another way to see roots is when some plants sprout roots if you don’t use cook them soon, like potatoes. But most of the time we don’t have the opportunity to observe roots because they’re in the ground and really not thought of much, until there is a problem.
These images were made in a recent workshop. My view and uncovering roots.

In the spirit of transitions, I’m sharing my art that speaks to endings with hope toward a new beginning, as well as prose that inspire.
Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on midnoon, and under every deep a lower deep opens – Emerson
