necessary camping

I just got back from spending an amazing week out at Heather's Family's land in Montana. It's been way too long since I've been able to step away from the world of humans, buildings, and communication devices. We hiked around picking huckleberries, wild raspberries, black currents, and rose hips. I made a tiny boat out of bark, twigs and leaves, and sent it down the creek with a pebble for a passenger, and I drew pictures and daydreamed about the new comics I'm working on.
I also made a shrine out of some deer skulls we found out in the woods. I've got to make sure I get to do this kind of thing at least a few times a year. Living at this kind of pace makes a lot of sense to me. Now that I'm back, it feels kind of strange to be in a city, but I'm rearranging my studio now, so I can launch into working my new comics with as clear a focus as possible.
