    Glad to see this one find a home, Dawn. It's lovely. We went to an outdoor symphony this weekend and spent much of it 'folding and unfolding' . . . :-)

    Quite a delight. A very vivid piece - and wonderfully unexpected.

    Nice work, Ms Bruce. Is the book 'Tangible Shadows' presently available in US book stores?

    A vivid image Dawn. You have nicely caught the uncertainty of the weather in a simple action.
