Widowsweave Day 10

Photos by Shalaka Kulkarni (except 2&3)
Freezing cold, windy, rock hard sand at 63rd St. Beach. Shalaka and I tried to draw in the frozen sand as best we could.  We got 4,750 lines by searching out sand veins, sand covered snow or scratching away as best we could.  We had to take a break in the middle to warm our fingers in the car.   One patch, it was hard to tell the drawn lines from the natural   ripples caused by the wind.
