Emma Walks

Quest #16 was: “Celebrate human powered transportation in whatever form you wish!”

My favorite type of human-powered transport is…walking!

(I want to get into biking someday, but right now I don’t have a bike.)

Walking is a wonderful, natural way to move around. I really enjoy a walk through a park, an interesting town, or a forest.

Walking is also good for you, of course. And something else I’ve pondered is that you are more free when you walk than when you drive. Why?

Well, in short, many fewer laws apply to you when you walk. You can walk (or run) really, really fast or really, really slow. You can choose not to wear your prescription glasses. In some places, at least, you could drink a beer while walking. You do not need to be registered, licensed, or insured to walk. It’s free to walk – you don’t need to buy a car, gas, or pay any of the multitude of other costs of a car.

I drew this picture to celebrate walking.

Now, let’s go take a walk!

After quite a long pause, I’m returning with my seed quest results!

There are some bushes I pass by often. I’m not sure what they are. But I noticed earlier in the winter that they have big, strange seed pods dangling from them!

I wasn’t sure if I liked the look of these pods and I left them alone.

Luckily, I saw one in the parking lot later. It has been broken open and the most wonderful seeds had rolled out!

These seeds are so adorable. They don’t even look quite real to me. The amount of seeds you see here are how many come out a single pod.  If these could be strung, they’d make lovely beads. Quite wonderful, isn’t it?

Quest #13

Quest #13 has tip-toed onto the blog, wearing very quiet slippers and carrying a magic wand…


The quest is to go outside and find an object, then tell us the magical story behind this object.


It can be short or long, told in words or pictures,  however you want to interpret this.


And now the Quest waits silently, sometimes sprinkling sparkly dust about the room…

Something Pointy

And this is a handmade (not by me) wooden sword that’s quite pointy at the tip.  (Art print by Jen Lemen.)
