I never cease to be amazed and delighted by the creative stories and art that are shared!

There were two trees.

They are friends.

They have a bird friend too.

Although they can talk to each other through their bird friend.

They cannot play or touch each other.

There was a road in between them.

Then they both grew up.

And one day they can touch each other’s leaves and branches.

They are happy now.

They brid friend sings a song for them.

I climbed a tree almost.

It was such a joy to share the creative papermaking process with adults and children alike last Sunday. Parent’s taught children. Children taught parents. Onlookers eased in to join the fun. Stories were shared and trees were celebrated.

Many thanks to Artists Book House for sponsoring the event with the Evanston Arts Council Special Projects Grant. Additional confetti to celebrate community building activist Jamie Thome ; amazing artist, fiber and pulp provider Melissa Jay Craig; Evanston Library and librarian (now papermaker) Laura Antolin; volunteers extraordinaires Michael Swierz, Katie Kucera and ABH Intern Kerrigan; and to all who shared in the papermaking/tree storytelling event. It was beautiful!

Story and art by A. Kaunuda

Visiting the willow was my reason for joining my uncle and cousin on their spring/summer fishing trek to the Washington Park Lagoon.

Three blocks from our house was my grandmother’s flower garden where they dug up the worms for bait.

I packed a picnic lunch because they never ever caught any fish.

While they baited the hooks at the water’s edge I climbed into the welcoming embrace of the sturdy weeping willow branch that extend out over the surface of the lagoon. With my back against the trunk and my feet dangling over the branches just inches from the water’s surface, I sang and cloud surfed and danced my whispered dreams.  I skipped across the water with dragonflies, floated on the surface with willow leaves, inhaled spring and exhaled summer into the last autumn sunset.
