When I returned yesterday from a month away, this was waiting in the mailbox. It is Alicia's "Overboard," a small meander book made from a covered old journal page enclosed in a re-shapeable boat. Everything about it charms me: the way each of us can shape the boat to our own vision, the idea of setting afloat our possibly outworn ideas, the permeability of it all, the way a meander moves much like our emotions. One of my strongest beliefs is that the work of art is made at the intersection between the maker, the receiver and the materials. This makes that manifest. Thanks, Alicia

What a magical looking resolution! It would be another fabulous one to hold and turn and play with a many have said it's tough not to be able to get one of each, but I guess none of us would sign up for an edition of 100...and if we did, they probably couldn't be as gorgeous and exciting as the ones we are seeing.

Thanks, Fiona! I'm so glad you like it. Alicia
