It's colder then a witches tit in a brass brazier here in Aspen, but the snow is good. There is not a person on the mountain and the light is extraordinary. I've been thinking about cutting stones very thin to bring light out of saturated stones that appear dark when faceted, a la stained glass. It's going to happen, and very soon. I find it very interesting how everything tends to work better after yoga. Between the Museums and the chairlift and the soft light through freezing snow, nascent ideas have taken a more defined shape. The sea grass will give way to this paper thin gem stone idea. I will be sure to make the inclusions in the stones part of the tenor of the pieces.
