Cirelle and Nancy. When right in front of me down plops this stunningly beautiful young woman wearing a crown of bright yellow daisies. I thought she looked so especially heavenly that I grabbed my camera from the bag to capture her loveliness even though I didn't know her.
Before I knew it, bing bang boom, Sherie was excitedly planning on coming to Halfland with Cirelle that Friday! They were good friends and would enjoy working together. People there that day, who knew both Halfland and Sherie, all said YES! of course! Sherie belongs in Halfland! Hooray!
Cirelle filled me in that, "...She is a poet, photographer, collagist and a complete angel." I learned when she came over that she works with autistic children for a living. A difficult yet rewarding calling, I imagine. What a delightful, inspiring person she is.
She went out of her way to get started here last Friday. I only had her for 2-3 hours and truth be told, it was hard to get down to work and stop going deeper into conversation with her. But she was officially introduced to the project and even began cutting crepe paper grass for planting soon.
With her love of collaging, can you picture her face when she walked in and saw the giant reference wall?! It was priceless!
She fit right in and impressed me as a person. It seems as though every time I leave the house these days I come back with a perfect person to help make Halfland happen!
Please come again and again, Sherie from the Sea!
