This amazingly beautiful (inside and out) young woman, whose birthday happens to be today (!), flew here from another country to help me bring Halfland finally to life. She's expert, patient, kind, supportive--forget that, she could not be more of a fan of the project. She understands it, in some ways better than myself. And she coaxes it into being through her strength, experience, and enormous kindness.
She knows what it wants to be and is able to bring it about. She's saved me from my heavy concrete blocks of inability and is leading me out of inaction into frames. Finally.
For those of you who have been waiting, I thank you. Eliya is what we've all been waiting for.
