My friend Stef who is in the middle of some amazing shifts, posted this video on her blog that made me cry happy tears this morning. This captured my experience of Squam for me. 100+ people, some who may have been friends before, others who bravely came alone. Old, young, experienced, newbies all came together and gave themselves the gift of making art and taking time out. from emails, commutes, kids, high heels, deadlines… and made space for what was inside and created from a community of artists. Thank you all.
There is so much more I could say and gush, but I have 100’s of emails and a studio beckoning me like a long lost lover with new tricks learned at Squam!
Loving you all wide + strong,
