Just Drifting On By...In Praise of Weathered Wood

The beauty of wood, particularly weathered wood, was something I started truly appreciating in middle age. Perhaps because wood gets better with age.  Its color begins to fade to a seductive silver; its patterns become more defined and its textures richer.  On a misty morning by the sea, sun bleached driftwood, weathered by wind and water, takes hold of your imagination and leads you to an alternate world. 

Shifting scales, out of this alternate world and back into real time, the shore, shrouded in mist is still lovely, but just a little bit...tame.
