44. Retired Walking Friends

I was exploring the hiking trails around the village of Tsagarada, Greece when I came across a stone hut nestled in a grove of chestnut trees. The Pelion peninsula – about two hours north of Athens – has amazing hiking. Thick groves of enormous chestnut trees cover the steep hillsides. As you descend, the forests give way to stony groves of gnarled olive trees, tamarisks and lemons, until you finally arrive by the sea. This country cottage sported windows with drying shoes – shoes that appeared to have been forgotten months ago, left on the window sill.

This piece is part of my #ArtForGood project, where all proceeds from the sale of this piece are donated to a good cause. For this piece, I will donate funds to a youth ultimate team from south Seattle – SOUF – who recently qualified for the 2019 USA Ultimate Regional playoffs.  My teammates and I are helping to defray the travel expenses for these young players.
