“We are so grateful that you contacted us, and we are also so glad that you were open to leading a program on your own at the Kluge Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection. We both agree that it was absolutely magical! It was a pleasure to watch you create a welcoming and mindful environment that brought forth so much creativity and reflection. We loved seeing how it activated our collection in a new and very exciting way. We both feel that you are a role model for us as educators and teachers.
We have projected so much welcoming energy to the universe to bring someone to carry on caring for the seed you have planted with this program. Whoever they are – they won’t fill your shoes! But we have a good idea of what is possible, thanks to you. We firmly accept you into our club of bad-ass goddess teaching women, and once you’re in, you’re in for life.
W]hat your program showed us was how meaningful our space can be as a site for creative ideas to gather in general. So, thanks for showing us the way. Of course, we won’t have your lovely, thoughtful guidance that was so gently revealing, but we’ll have something else!”
