It has been a long time. Too long.
40 years of the acquisition of treasures outpacing their usefulness for making artworks.
The clean-up starts.
Dale Copeland 2022

This is as close as I could get to that corner to take the photo .... you might be able to see the large weaving loom in the corner, a hanging place for old dolls.
Friends who live way out in Ohura, said they'd love it the loom so .....
To get to it, and then to dismantle it .... I've been called the goddess of stubbornness and agility. Fair enough.
Packed all the pieces into my little car and did the exciting drive around the mountain, up the Forgotten World highway, across to Ohura, then back through Ahtiti and Mokau.
Back to see an empty little corner of my big studio!
Decided that, at last, the time had come for a serious sort, clear, and discard.
What a job!
