End of Fun Project

Just a quick post to share a great photo taken on a bright hot sunny day, at the end of an exciting project with  Natural High . This project included the children from Thongsley Primary School in Huntingdon, the staff and their parents. They all came together to create wonderful colourful costumes Mel, Ricki and I helped them to create  tie - dye bandannas, bright, sparkly headdresses, colourful cardboard tabbards and fabulous strip skirts. A delightful parade accompanied a performance of their own music  taught and led  by talented musician, Jo.
 In addition to this and with Ricki's supervision they also made  the absolutely handsome male giant puppet seen modelling with us. (Jo, Ricki, myself and Melissa, Gorgeous George standing elegantly behind). George the Giant! What a cutie!! The photo was taken by Viv Peters the director.

Time passes and healing begins.

For too many  times in the last four months have I sat at the computer written a blog post and then decided not to publish it. I have not been actively following other blogs either. Why? Of the many reasons the one that comes to mind more readily is that maybe it was a necessary process for me to clear my mind- almost a detoxification of sorts. I am now ready to start again with fresh inspiration. All of the work which I have done recently with schools, exhibitions visited and general everyday living has played a role in my period of reflection. I believe that like many people who fast for religious and spiritual reasons which help them to be better able to appreciate all that they have: I have with my "fasting from the Internet" a better appreciation of it and a greater desire to be a part of all that happens within it.
I have had a birthday an anniversary and some events which I would rather not have experienced but I am still here ready to continue; To be, to give and to share all that I can with the world.
