On a recent chilly Vermont afternoon I had the pleasure of visiting Elizabeth Bunsen’s studio to unwrap some “bundles”. I was honored that she saved them for me. I truly understand how much creative restraint it requires to not open them up right away.
They are so mysterious…every single time. I can’t really explain what they feel like—an ancient scroll, a map, a message from ancestors, a signal from nature, a calling, a memory, a longing…they’re so peaceful and yet a little haunting as well. I told you that you that it’s nearly impossible to describe what it feels like to unwrap these bundles.
I’m much better at showing you than telling you.
