Having returned to the States one week ago, feeling a little out of place, many friends and viewers asked me to continue writing and I can’t argue. In fact, it grounds me to continue this blog, I feel as though I am taking Kolkata, Udayan and the children home with me and then I can close my eyes and feel India, smell the spices, hear the music I so miss.
As an artist and teacher, while working in the art room, I sensed the presence of something very powerful – spiritual electricity I think, inspired by the students and the act of creation. A creative alliance I suppose, and the feeling of a higher power guiding us all. And so, I would like to post the photos of the children’s work today, as an introduction to the next phase of my journey.

Enjoy these, and if you would like, some are still available for purchase. All proceeds go to the funding of Udayan , a welfare and rehabilitation school for the children of leprosy patients. And, stay tuned as I continue to write and hopefully return to the path of creativity the children have inspired.
