Imagining Sand Art . . .
“It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.”
~ Robert W. Service
Looking at a newly enlarged gravel pit in the middle of my northwoods is a rather sad sight. However, the need for this important, hard to find construction resource is very understandable. As long as the resources of the woods are gathered in a respectful way for important things, I can not complain too much. I can still feel some sadness about it, though.
To hear more about the work done in the gravel pit this summer visit my post: Loud, Stinky Summer Neighbors at my home blog Bear In Mind.
Wandering around the pit today, appreciating the newly blacktopped roads in my area and looking for the “rainbow” of what was done to the earth to build them, I was able to find some “art” … sand art.
