Friday Night Frolic

It’s always exciting when a package comes in the mail with handmade paper rounds with engaging stories and artwork. I recently received 4 beautiful rounds and a note from Annette Wichmann, Canada who shared that over 3 years ago members of the Bow Valley Calligraphy Guild had a “Friday Night Frolic” where they made handmade paper. Some of the members created round shapes and dedicated them to the project. Annette said that she would mail them, threw them into a ziplock bag for safe keeping. The bag was misplaced. She just found it—and mailed it as she said she would.

I hope you don’t mind my sharing this story Annette. Somehow it makes me smile—to know those rounds were simply waiting. And as Andy Goldsworthy (an incredible artist who works with nature) once said, “There is poetry in waiting.”
