Sticks, what can I say, I like sticks, the way they change directions. Plus, I grew up next to the woods and played with sticks; climbed trees, built shelters out of sticks. That stuff is basic to me. And that may be why I turned to sticks when we began sheltering in place to keep us away from Covid-19.
At first, I couldn’t find sticks – Mostly palms down here in Florida, and the neighborhood is compulsively neat. Martha, an artist friend in Virginia sent me a box of sticks and this is what happened.
