An unexpected human pause for Earth Day’s 50th anniversary is giving us a view we don’t often see. I sketched tree rings here for @whatsnextforearth as a beautiful view that can only been seen from growth suddenly stopped. There’s always new growth trying from the same roots. And there’s a tiny heart at the center of it.

I am reminded of the universal truth of “nothing motivates like a deadline” as Earth Day is tomorrow (Wednesday). My art brain has been on pause for a while in favor of fabric mask making and house projects and was finally ready to shift back.
