It never ceases to amaze me how one act can lead to entirely different acts that we could not begin to imagine from the starting point of our journey. Early in March before Covid struck, my wife and I spent a very happy 10 days meandering up the NW side of Scotland. I have to say that the west coast of Scotland is one of the most beautiful places and spaces I have had the good fortune to find myself in. As we journeyed through the stunning coastal landscape I felt the need to leave my mark so I made some simple towers of stones from the rocks that were ready to hand in some of the places we visited. And for a few moments I felt a part of the landscape. I photographed the towers and later made a short movie. A few weeks later I used my experience as an illustration of creative self-expression and this evolved into writing the story which that I then used to evaluate my own creativity and develop some new mapping and profiling tools in the process. I think these tools might be useful in educational settings and I welcome others to try them out.
