The Exact Word

It’s odd that in literally a million English words that there isn’t one for this feeling that I’m always trying to describe to people that defines my relationship to the prairie. And yet, in my father’s native tongue, here it is.

How do you know when someone is your true friend?

For me it’s when they make a special trip out to the prairie to pick a bouquet of grass and bring it to the house for me.

It was the most thoughtful gift I’ve ever been given.


When ever I get artist block and get afraid to start anything I just go back to chalk drawing. It’s so much less precious then canvas and paint and I can feel like a kid again.
