About the piece: It is well known that time spent in nature helps us humans to relax, to reset, to find that internal harmony with ourselves and with our external environment. Take a step back in time to childhood where everything was new and exciting - the first bird of spring, a discarded snail shell, butterflies on late spring flowers, the buzz of the bumble bee, acorns still wearing their little caps and the always magical spider web. Meld the wonder of childhood with the much-needed time out of adulthood to become your own Keeper of Harmony.
