ABOUT THE WORK
"In my front yard of my house my family and I decided to write on colorful ribbons and hang them from our leafless tree in the fall. We were writing little prayers, messages, and notes of gratitude concerning our lives. During the same time a couple of Tit Oak Mouse birds, the little gray guys with mohawks, moved into a little crevasse in the tree. It was a little while before you heard the little chicks squawking for food. It is always a blessing to see animals thrive, create, spawn, and live in your vicinity. It made me think of mine and my wife's story of how lucky we were to have our son. When I met my wife, she was just finishing up with chemotherapy for breast cancer. Long story short, we got married and had a child. But being told early on in our relationship, having a child was slim to nil because of my wife's body being speed up through chemotherapy. But that slim shot was all we needed, because our prayers to the world were answered."–John Osgood
