A record of an art quilter's life. The site name comes from Natalie Goldberg's phrase 'falling down the well' to describe the experience of becoming immersed in the trance of writing (or other creative activity.)

Alicia Merritt at the Bishops Palace
Alicia was kind enough to send me an invitation to the private view of her exhibition at the Bishops Palace in Bath. In the end, as we were newly arrived in the area and on New Zealand time we did not make it but went yesterday instead. Whilst I would have enjoyed seeing other people at the event, the counterpoint to that is that we had the room to ourself and were able to enjoy, uninterupted, the effect of seeing the series of quilts. I have seen several of Alicias map quilts seperately in shows but it was inspirational to see a body of work all together.
