Gratitude

By Laurel Shastri
Onward and away! Onward and away!

Thank you, Djerassi! Thank you, Leonardo! Thanks to all who made this amazing experience a reality. Thanks to the other residents (past, present, and future) whose creativity, excitement and interest abounds in all that they do and permeates this magical place. As I prepare to leave here, I just wanted you to know that this experience is something that I will cherish for the rest of my days. And I will continue to realize its impact for many years to come. The photo is my collaboration in time and space with Ann Weber & William Wareham's 'To Market To Market' from 2000. I hope I may share the bounty of my experience with those whom I touch through my work and play….
