I’m embarking on a busy few months and won’t have much time to dawdle (what a much maligned thing is a dawdle!).  To remind myself to slow down and breathe deeply, I wanted to (quickly!) post some images from the wonderful STILL  by Mary Jo Hoffman.  She’s shot an image each day since 1st January 2012 of things she has seen or collected on walks with her dog.

The images are sometimes of a single find, sometimes a collection and often arranged as Andy Goldsworthy-like ephemeral art .

Such a simple concept, requiring great discipline but delivering manifold rewards for her (and the dog) I imagine.

She describes it as ‘Still blog— a place to stop. A place to look at one thing at a time. A place to be still.’

Exhale.
