My good friend and artist Marged Pendrell is working on a project involving a collection of earth samples here is what she says:
'I am looking for people who would like to take part in a work entitled -EARTH CONNECTION
It involves the collecting and sending of a sample of earth from a place that has a special significance , experience or memory. A small plastic bag of approx 2"x2" would be ideal . With the sample I would like details of the place it came from , date and name (optional). Also, why you chose that place - this can be written as text, poem etc. Deadline - End of February'
Marged's project is really wonderful and I hope you will feel inspired to take part - let me know by a comment or email me here for details to send the sample - unfortunately Marged is not a blogger and I can't persuade her otherwise at the moment - here is your chance to show her the fantastic support given by the blogging community - thanks in anticipation!
