Yesterday I lost a crampon in the woods. I looked down and one boot was bare. You can see – above – what I lost: it’s meant to prevent your slipping on the ice. You can also see, by contrast, the size of my little horse pieces I’ve been having a blast making.
So today I went back to the woods. Dammit. I was going to find that sucker. I put on my backup pair of crampons – my red ones. And off I went.
The woods are half ice and half mud now. The mud would pull your boots off if possible. So… in looking for my lost item, I managed to lose these sweet other red ones not once, not twice, but three times! At the end of the walk, I was carrying them – just sliding on the darn ice.
I never found the lost one. Soaked into the morass. Gone.
But I have the leftover. And, as you can see, I’ve already put it to good use: as an indicator of my art size. Assuming that you know I’m not godzilla.
