we are total goofs...

we played in the woods this past weekend
i noticed
john making a little manly stick figure
but
then i was worried little stick figure man would get walked on
so i gave him some shoes
and
then built a little fence around him to keep him protected
then we got really creative
and
made a LOVE sign
and
what's a LOVE sign if you don't leave arrows
in order to find it again
we're going back next weekend
if you want to join us
and
i think this time i'll make a
DREAM
sign
*
what's the saying....something like "you don't stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing".....i think there's lots of truth in that

  5. So woodsy and sweet! That little man looks very loved and quite secure with the fence around him. Wonder if he will still be waiting for you when you return next time?

  13. Oh I love it. How fun. It reminded me of the little bird campfires that my daughter made as a child. They were small and were a little circle made of twigs. She always made them when we went camping.

  14. I would have loved to find your little message trail as I was walking in the woods! The quote you posted is something a lot of people SHOULD live by but don't. I know several 'old' ones who can't relate to this and are prisoners in themselves...

  20. I love this! Being playful is so wonderful. =) It reminds me of when my best friend and I made a word out of stones at winter camp one year. The word was tsadik, and we actually spelled it out in the Hebrew letters, so I imagine no one who came across it had any idea what it meant... That is a beautiful place. Where did you go camping?

  29. there is a beach on the island of St.John you would love to photograph. Everyone who visits make stick figures and rock figures- they are so cool- your little stick figure reminded me of Drunkards Bay where the stick people lay. I am a goof too!
