Summertime Indigo Life.
An Australian doctor, an artist/ teacher from Hong Kong, an artist/teacher from France. We spent ten days together in the heat here in the mountains getting to know each other and time at the indigo vats and time in the river rinsing the cloth. It was a beautiful time. There was harmony and happiness the entire time. Hiro kept us well fed. We were all valuing the precious time we had together.
I am thinking of packing in the live-in workshops one of these years. I will have to find some solace somewhere from the sadness of not having times in the future like these past ten days.
My lovely dog Momo was bitten by a pit viper and was in the hospital for a week. She came home and for a few days Joanne, Yuk Ling and Helene were able to meet her. She is getting better day by day.
We harvested three varieties of indigo. Persimmon dyed in the morning before the heat was too much. Some projects ready for the next steps. To be embellished and cut up and stitched together.
Hiro arranged lotus flowers on the dining room table.
Magical days...and Momo is better....
