Learning more about Cedar in Kenya: A Video and Conversation
Departing Washington, DC during a snow storm, Cedar and her family arrived in Kenya 14 hours later. Their time was shared with many friends, cousins, and of course animals from desert to water, where Kenya meets the Indian Ocean.
"Here, Janie. I'm cutting some up for you!" -Cedar
"When Sylvie says she wants some clay I will give it to her, and when Janie wants some clay, I will give it to her," Cedar said as half of us gathered around the round table to play with clay, for a second day of clay work since last year. Poking, cutting, pinching, pulling, smooshing, building, rolling, and scoring were all part of our clay play this morning. "I'm making a tree house," Sylvie and Maxon said, but by the end of their work, they chose to take apart their clay to try again next week. Janie made a house with no walls or roof and has plans to add these structural elements on Monday. Cedar enjoyed her time by cutting and distributing the clay to others in a helpful manner while Audrey, Jane and Giacomo added small twigs to their clay pieces, giving depth and meaning to their work.
Enjoy the weekend and the flowers!
