In a matter of 5 days I had the pleasure and honor to work with 6 woman in a 2-day workshop then I worked with 4 families getting some adventurous kids out of the Utah mountains where they were trapped by a freak storm. Whew. Today, Thanksgiving, is filled with wonder and gratitude. The mono print workshop was so delightful; I had no idea that my son and his friends were facing quite a challenge in the canyon lands. At the end of the workshop I took this photo of the gorgeous finished books using mono prints to decorate the pages and covers. An hour later I was realizing that the kids had not emerged f rom their backpacking trip and something was wrong. 12 hours later I was on a plane to Moab, a few hours after that the kids were rescued and being cared for by a wonderful medical staff in Monticello. Everyone was OK; we met many angels along the way and have so much to be grateful for. Whew. What a crazy week and there is still Black Friday!!
