It's good to be back ... & sales!

RB has changed a lot since the last time I visited and must say am pretty happy about it.
Was stunned and delighted to come back from a very hot afternoon to 2 sales (African dawn elephants).
Thank you very much to the buyer(s) and hope you’ll enjoy them for a long time.

what I've been upto???

Why do days have only 24 hours? Can’t we stretch some to 72 hours?
Well, will find a way to divide my time differently …

What I’ve been upto? well for a good 6 weeks did hundreds of origami cranes for 26 April 2011 in memory of the victims of Chernobyl, Fukushima and others.
Here’s the link for the pics of that fabulous afternoon
, full of laughter, sun, warmth, amazing butô dancers, meetings with people from all around the world …

The 1000grues action is still going on and the site is in both English and French (not necessarely in that order).
We collected almost 4000 origami cranes and that’s an achievement in itself.
Thank you to Annick who’s the master mind for organising this, her dedication, her patience, her smile and joy and of course to everyone that contributed in their own way.

sales, snow, bronchitis and pay it forward

Had the delightful surprise to find out that I sold 2 of my “hei matau” tees and would like to thank the buyer you certainly made my day.…

Some of you may have heard that Switzerland, more specifically the west, is experiencing a rehearsal for a white Xmas (a good 20 to 30 cm or 8 to 12" of fabulously fluff snow in the last 24hrs). We haven’t seen that much snow in Geneva in many years and it seems that tomorrow we’ll get some more; just to give it a finished looked (and bothered a bit more those who decided to take their car today knowing that they wouldn’t be able to drive).
Must say it’s absolutely gorgeous when everything is layered in white. The snow and cold seems not to disturb much these 2 swimmers … Later one there was a whole group of people swimming int he lake; probably training
