Sitting in the little house that Katya and Hugh, Margit and I are sharing for a few more days, as the evening draws to a close. Grains and vegetables, tofu and bubur for pudding… during the meal a moment arises when we look at each other and say:
‘Today’s the day! We did it and here we are – isn’t that just amazing? – And it is a beautiful book.’ Touching a quiet moment of joy together.
Strong winds and rain last night and today a visit to Candi Sukuh, swept clean by the elements.
The taxi driver tells us that Germany won the World Cup (around 3.00 am Indonesian time).
So happy to be in Sukuh again. One of the turtles has cracked a little and been mended with a white stripe.
I love these turtles.
We study ‘seed’ and we practise audience and points of view.
A few more days of workshop before the book launch on July 19th. The launch is combined with a Retrospektiv about Prapto’s early artistic life - an exhibition of Wayang Buddha, created around 1975. It will take place in a gallery at the front of the biggest book shop in Solo, on the main street- Jl.Slamet Riyadhi.
Below is the programme, still changing as I write this, but it gives an idea.
