christmas spirit = found

Friday, December 24th, 2010

so, as you know, i was searching for some extra christmas spirit, and this morning it arrived in the form of an email.

Rasa Juskeviciute, photographer and teacher at  Justinas Vienozinskis art school in Vilnius, Lithuania has a sister who lives in sydney, and who sends Rasa packages which include frankie magazine. the school has never had a history of having a christmas tree, which she found rather silly, so this year they made there first ever, inspired by my tree that appeared in frankie (have a look here).  instead of filling it with paper cuts, they filled it with the kids drawings, paintings and ceramics.

that light bulb is one of the best things i have ever seen. in fact the whole tree is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

thanks for sending rasa. i am speechless. and a little teary. and also full to the brim of christmas spirit.
