blooming at the Poet's Ode

it's been such fun this week
preparing for my first Australian pop up
at the Poet's Ode this coming weekend
each piece is 'one of a kind'
Alia (the one who creates the magic that is the Poet's Ode)
let me play in the front window.
when i grow up,
i would like a studio with a window like that
in which i could construct installations
and then watch the whirled go by
while i work behind
(although i would still need to keep a studio out on the paddocks
where i can potter about in blissful solitude)
making another delivery yesterday i met a client
who usually lives in San Francisco and
who had purchased the dress i showed in an exhibition
held in South Australia two years ago.
it was a bit of a thrill to serendipitously meet!
and now i think i might like to become a window dresser
especially if i am allowed to write poems on the glass
with a finger dipped in clay

i'll be present at Poet's Ode all day Saturday March 5
and teaching a class in their inner sanctum on March 6

i hope some of you will swing by?
