Mini from Singapore left last weekend after spending three months here at the house. It was such a sad goodbye. We had so many experiences during her stay. Living under the same roof she could see all the chaos and fun and hard work that goes on around here so that things look and run smooth when guests and students are here. She wrote and asked to stay and seemed so earnest that I accepted. I've had several emails asking me to stay at the house and study indigo and silk processes and I had always refused. I couldn't get a clear idea of the general mechanics of a long-term stay. I am comfortable with it now. Mini was soo easy. She is a designer and had a clear idea of what she wanted to achieve. She was easy to talk too. She took initiative and progressed. Aghh... Mini we miss you and are proud of all your hard work and progress. You must be back at work in Singapore. Think of us sometimes and the Geiger and the Momo are waiting for you to come back and visit.
