a little story

we were eating at the fish tavern. A little girl crossed the road, wearing her swimsuit, at eleven o'clock at night and swam in the black sea, happy as a fish, or a mermaid.talking later with her mother..she told me that she is a handfull, drives her (the mum) crazy. And that she is only 4 years old. I was making sympathetic noises, secretly rejoicing in the little one's spirit. (there was a grownup with her, watching from the beach)
as I was being sympathetic, the mother went on: "and do you know what she did? she wanted to take her swimmimg aids off, and I wouldn't let her because she is too young, and the little devil BIT them off with her teeth!!"
I couldn't hold back, a loud HURRRAAAYYY was heard, right there in the fish tavern, after midnight, two nights ago.

Oh yes, HURRAY!

I can relate... my parents said I was NOT to be contained... they were blown over by me, and at some
point, folks started telling my mother to give up. She finally did, mostly.

Art, creation are the best wat to go trough problems.
In Argentina we had a great crisis ten years ago and now we are living a rebirth. I trust it will happen the same in you country and I pray for Greece. Go on creating!!!! Be hopeful!!!

Ha! This was a good story. I have always tried to be the good girl. My daughter was a spunky monkey, which was cute til she hit 14...then, not so much!
Love your cloth.

Thank you for the wonderful images of your natural dyeing - I love the juxtaposition of your own creativity with the story of the wee girl.
