Canada Geese

Canada Geese

I see two hearts coming together, joining in a central radiating light, representing geese being mates for life. The heart shapes appear as profiles of lips kissing with a central V axis representing geese flying in V formation, optimizing efficiency of flight.

Catskill Cicada

Catskill Cicada

During the week leading up to my first time going to see my favorite musician Michael Franti & band Spearhead live at the Mtn. Jam Music Festival in the Catskills of NY, I heard this fascinating talk on VPR about Cicadas & their unequaled ability to project sound, immediately connecting this with Franti. The day my friend & our daughters were driving home, we heard this weird loud sound & right away stopped along the side of the road to investigate. We immediately saw bugs swarming everywhere throughout the trees & discovered it was the emergence of the 17 year Cicada. They just so happened to be orange and black, the colors of the All People Tour.

You can see the white ovals which are the Tymbals (sound organs), within the diamonds of the design.
