Walk About is a collage and poem series about what I see when I walk, and is part of our Always a Project series.

Always a Project in Progress #1 and #2 - Book List

Update: Project #1 Collage and #2 Short Poems working together as part of my Walk About series - you'll find them in the blog under Always a Project as well as Walking.
