  1. Leah, I might just be thick and low on spoons (ok, definitely low on spoons), but I don’t get this…

      That’s OK… it was just about how I could see the face in the trees right away and that the kite was an eye… It is about perspectives and seeing things from a different angle. It was a visual metaphor for considering things differently. It also had me reflecting about the way H often sees things uniquely from his own angle in his own way – and how that is a trait we share. I drew it in so that others could see what I saw – as an overlay – and the progression of images. It is not particularly deep – I just thought it was beautiful the way there was that face hidden there in the branches. It reminded me of those hidden pictures activities I loved as a kid.

      I hope I didn’t make you lose a spoon…

    Yes!! Highlights Mag!! I was uncertain if that was solely a Canadian reference.
    I also still see owls in trees, dragons in clouds, octopi, one-eyed pigs + poodles in popcorn, and little animals (and even spoons) hidden in our swirly 1970′s bathroom floor, wood grain, and the like.
