I freely admit that I exaggerate! I'm not embarrassed. Reporting the facts doesn't interest me. When I see something that inspires me, something that has the seed of beauty, I get excited about what could be. Here, I was walking the trail that runs along a favorite creek, watching for the light, water, limestone and plants to conspire. When the basic elements come together, the game is on. I rearrange, extend, trim, add, leave out, change sizes, and dramatize whatever is there. It's wonderfully fun, and my embellishments don't hurt anyone. I'm a storyteller not a journalist.
