The Central City Library and the Book Lounge book giveaway and Desmond Tutu's Book launch got lots of wonderful press. 'I love Books' got to share the limelight with the wonderful Mr Tutu - What an absolute honour
The European trip I have been dreaming about is finally happening. So after years of saving and working bloody hard I am spending almost 2 months in Europe in June and July this year.
FINALLY I have actually booked and paid to go to a retreat in the South West of France. I will spend 4 weeks there working on nothing in particular and just letting my mind run away. What I do want to do is work on some site specific, temporary land art similar to what got me started on this whole journey a couple of years ago in Natures Valley.
The art retreat I am going to is called 'La Muse' and what attracted me to it is that they do not dictate anything - you simply have a room, access to communal lounge, library, studio and kitchen space. The focus is on work and creative production whether it be writing, art, music or dance. The other massive draw card is that it is in an area of incredible natural beauty.
Combined with this I am going to be seeing some long missed friends in Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam - does it get any better than this !!! WWOOHHHHHOOOOOOOO
An afternoon teaching Origami to some delightful young adults at Westridge High. Thank you to The Book Lounge for setting it up as part of their mentorship program that runs in tandem with putting a library a year into a school.

My favourite thing in the world - the Forest of 7 cards.
Now it flatpacks into an A4 size envelope
It can be hung in a window or just rest on desk to inspire thought and dreaming like when one walks in the forest.
