and there are many more lovely photos i can show the main co next term....
I am indecisive when it comes to images, "Editing is everything" my brother tells me! he should know, but i have little talent in that area, my improv skills are based on what we call "bodging" and comes from a "make it with whats in front of you" mentality not a planner, although i have had to struggle to acquire some of that with funding needs.
I have dreams and vision and somehow one has to squeeze that into plans, which can work but can hurt in the squeezing!
Shelley O'Berg visited recently and she had such good insights into performance and symbolism that i meant to get her to write them down. Shelley worked in Shallal for approx 3years? about 17 years ago, I can only set it by the age of our children, Esme is nearly 18.
Nearly on holidays.... here are the photos by Belinda Whiting, http://belindawhiting.co.uk/home.html
many thanks to her and we loved working with her and look forward to her working on Cornish Doorways with us.
Also highly recommend her truly beautiful book
