One of the reasons I moved to rural Northwest Indiana 19 years ago was for its natural beauty and unique environmental qualities. Since making my home on a farm in LaPorte, I have immersed myself into a continued course of study of the interdependent relationships of plants, animals and people within the natural world.

Leaves were collected dry and sandwiched between to layers of pulp during the paper making process. They float just below the surface reflecting on a season now past and growth will continue.
