On the first day of this Textile Course, as we set up our tables with our various stashes and nests of fabric, there were name tags to identify us. I cannot recall quite what was said to make Ilka say that we could be anyone we wanted to be.
In a fleeting moment Anastasia emerged, like a thin, barely visible waft of smoke from an incense stick.
As I wrote the name Anastasia on the blank canvas of the name tag everyone laughed. Within moments, like the bag of a hot air balloon she filled, puffed up, rose and gained stature.
Upon rising she spoke saying ‘I am Anastasia and Anastasia is happy to be here with Heather. We are ready to have fun and play.’
Then, during an activity when Ilka was encouraging us to define the essence of a concept Anastasia prodded me, laughed as only Anastasia can laugh and suggested that it would be a challenge to forage and identify the essence of her.
Yes! She is a spirited one. I saw that unleashing her, filling her with warm air means I have something to contend with.
This blog is now Anastasia’s blog. Old posts have been removed and we are starting over, happy to be working collaboratively. The hunt has begun!
