gunnera leaf rubbing on cotton bed sheet, waxed.
I have heard from Middlesex University and they have indicated that they are looking into ways to ensure that we do graduate. Something positive will come from this. Thanks v much for the encouraging emails and comments. I am OK. I noticed my own old work yesterday when I wrote that post. Those giant leaf rubbings were first made in 2007, then in 2009 I painted them with hot wax. Stumbling, taking risks, I don't know where these are going, or if they're going anywhere at all.
I've also been re-reading The Principles of Uncertainty by Maira Kalman, a most excellent graphic masterpiece. I keep it at the cottage and read it every year around this time.
Step, step, step.
How are we all so brave as to take step after step?
Day after day?
How are we so optimistic, so careful not to trip and yet do trip, and then get up and say OK.
