1. Leaves copper plated, smeared and sketched with blues and greens and oranges.
2. Chatting to stallholders at a craft fair. I hear stories about ocarinas, am complimented on my voice, overhear a description of a green man, discover how flowers end up in paper weights and discover that the metal leaf man got his machine from someone who was emigrating.
3. Watching ants going about their tiny business up and down the leg of a bench.
