I went with Champlain Elementary School to visit one of the worlds largest COMPOSTS at the Intervale in Burlington. I had no idea it could get as hot as 175 degrees in the centers of these piles.... This place, in my book, is a worthy tourist attraction and it is an incredibly strange that they are forced to move the whole operation to Williston. Personally I believe this goes hand in hand with the spirit of what is underneath the grounds and it would be interesting to hear the opinions of the Abenaki people.

Yes! I was contacted by Pia Sjolin, another glass artist. She is organizing an exhibition in Utvandrarnas Hus, the Emigrant Institute, in Växjö, Sweden, on a very interesting topic: humanity, how to celebrate inclusiveness. To be continued.

We are still awaiting our permit from Burlington City.

Have a great Valentine's, Alla Hjärtans, Day Everyone!

I listened to "the Porters" at Skinny pancake this Saturday, What a great band. I really recommend their new CD. It's, indie folk & classical and very inspiring. Life is good in Vermont. The weekend ended with another hugely inspiring event: Bill Mc.Kibben at Main st. Landing. 350 degrees, as a movement and a tool to act on climate change. Look up , forward it to your friends and coworkers and act!

We are on track again. After a snowy, eventful and thoughtful beginning of the year I'm picking up where I left you at Lucia. A trip to Sweden was included where we said goodbye to our beloved Grand Mother. She was an amazing woman who was always there for you. I would like to recommend a book "Loving Kindness", the revolutionary art of happiness by Sharon Salzberg
inspiring the importance of being there for each other, family, friends and all of those you don't know yet. With new found strength and a firm belief in working through our creative processes with open hearts, I hope to share with you the results here at A Clear Story in 2011.
