sticks. a simple wooden stick seems to make cc so curious. he collects stout ones from the woodshed corner in the garden, fallen ones from under the trees lining smart terraces and soggy ones from murky ditches.
here is cc's collection from today. a sturdy stick found by the automobile shop on charles street. a fistful of tiny flowers from the commons, and a vintage miniature truck from a nearby secondhand store.
and this is cc with tuesday's stick of the day. maybe we should hang his stick collection together to make a nature mobile, or turn them into a tiny fence for a vegetable patch. though i'm sure if we did cc would soon find another and use it to prod around in the nova scotian mud.
