Smaller Than They Appear

Smaller Than They Appear

In all the change going on in the world at the moment, one of the benefits of being close to home constantly is that I have been able to take a step back and plan for the entire summer from a more grounded perspective. Having tried to plot out certain ideas over the years I always find myself two weeks late for this side project or just past the right time for that. The very first thing I noticed the local hardware store running low on was gardening equipment, way back in late March. I thought about it a little, had some ideas but I let it sit. I am always pushing my time a little too thin, even staying at home. But as the weeks rolled on I looked at the extra wood in the shed and wondered maybe. Then one of our local farms announced a seedling sale of their left overs. Synchronicity at play. An hour one Saturday to get the right mix of dirt and a few hours one Sunday between the nursery (the sale wasn’t as stocked as I had hoped) and building the bed and we had a vegetable garden. Every morning I am watering it with pride. All I needed was a little time. And then this morning I noticed two little tomatoes had formed on the end of a stalk. When I sat down to draw it I noticed there were actually a few more. I’ll take the small things any day.—Dominick
