what a trip.
need i say that there was a glitch
then an almost miss in LA,
after being the last one on the plane,
and 15 hours 50 minutes
and australia was here.
quantas didn't give me a snack all night,
but i'm not about to faint away!
trace willan's exhibition
and her friendship and naomi stevenson's
a very very strong piece
we did some errands in melbourne
at naked for satan
and still the luggage travelled.
and finally to felicity's
where i was nurtured by a famous parsonage
and some notes
in the most friendly boy's room ever.
the trip to the grampians was hot.
we had weather in the 90's.
three plus hours in a car
with the lovely anne newton
arrival at #32
my home for 6 nights.
first there was a 2 day class
sharing of skills...
returnees and newbies and new skills, too
mixing it up
a ring of shifu
words and mitsumata and walnut
stitching on inked pages
there were 15 students in each class.
did i say it was hot?
first viewing of the classes works.
a hot hot HOT wind blew mightily.
eventually rain came after more teasing of heat.
a dad and his five kids
traveled through each morning.
my cabin kitchen where
i made much tea.
then the four day class came along
and anne, well anne drove me everywhere.
thank you so much my friend.
see her wee leather weights?
(and more to come...)
