Still Thinking About and Considering Andy Goldsworthy

I found out about Andy Goldsworthy from someone, from a blog post. I was so excited about it. I bookmarked this video that was attached to the posting. I lost the source. I am sure it was one of the many blogs on my blogroll or bookmarks. I would like to move on and just be enthused with it. I got an Ansel Adams Autobiography from the library yesterday and I began reading it. I LOVE it. There are so many things within the first four chapters for me to investigate! I did feel a bit silly finding so many things that I did not know, and then JOY OH JOY! New, untried, familiar, perhaps similar but NEW! A comfy searching out of my abilities, strengths and weaknesses! In one of the cross searches an Andy Goldsworthy book Wood cropped up and one of our branch libraries had it, so I put in my request! All along I recalled being exposed to the following video. I have so many thoughts and ponders and wishes! Organizing them into useable bits is not my strong suit. Generally, I do not write for others but for myself, though I can be very hard on myself when I do it. If I have any hope of recalling, understanding and using my cross associated generalizations I need to just begin. If the only thing with such a beginning that happens is that I do not have papers with notes on them that make no sense later, lying all over the house–well, that seems like a plus to me! I think I will play after with tagging and categories so that I might have better luck(really not luck then is it?) locating it later.
