Long talks with family, friends and colleagues; many classes full of eager and rambunctious third-grade poets—my purse of words is all but spent this week, and I have scarce enough to caption shadows.

And yet I have enough.

Join me for a short spontaneous woods-walk I took awhile back. My shadow spotted a single rock near the path, prompting hijinks of her own. Third-graders might approve.

    Wouldn’t you know that Irene O’Garden would have inspired images and thought and wit regarding shadow play? These are uncanny and completely original.

      Thanks, Laura! May all your shadows be fun ones!

  • Jorie Latham

    You provide me much needed laughter, Irene, thank you! And reminiscent of one of my very favorite of all ArtGardens, too!

    • IreneOGarden

      I did think of the Art Garden, Jorie! Our friendship is nearly as old as shadows themselves!
