More Lichens

Lately I have been thinking a lot about lichens. They aren't really something I know much about, but I am so curious about them. I'm kind of just letting ideas roll around my head right now, in the hopes of one day starting a project on them. One thing I love about my working process is how it enables me to research and learn about whatever it is I am interested in at that time. It tends to work seasonally too, so I move between subjects season by season, year by year. One think I love about lichens is the idea of them affecting their surroundings at such a slow rate and on both a micro and amazingly macro scale. I feel like my thoughts are starting to crystalise to the point where I could begin something. It might be something about the Autumn colours that inspires me about Lichens this time of year. Autumn just kind of inspires me on all levels though.
