In one week we became a stratum – look for us in the geological time scale. A layer of lichen and neon string, old bay, coffee grounds, kind-eyes, campfire smoke, gratitude, misplaced clay chunks, corncobs and india ink.

My hands are shredded from the granite and I leave the island with sand-filled cuts, my hope is that it will all heal inside of me.

Always trying to be more like a rock.
