Prior to the walk on February 3rd I was contacted by Nikky Norton Shafau, via Chris Sudworth of The Core. Nikky gives participants rewards for creative input and she bought 6 of my Seeds of Change Multiples to give away during Sky's future adventures. I also received a mysterious email from Sky.......
"I have nothing to say. Lady. Curly hair. Asks if I am OK. I ask who they are. They ask who I am but I cannot answer. Not because I can't. Because I cannot find the words. The right words. I try to tell them about the bakers I try and say about Brown Yard and the bakers but it is hurting me. "Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
"I try to sleep 40 winks. No blinks. I to be like I used to be with Fatty Fatty Johnson I try to be like that again. I try to ask questions. I try to make conversations. Sometimes nothing came. They ask me questions and sometimes nothing came." Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
"They cross the road and I am stuck. They leave me. I am left. They waited. We come to a fork in the road. The lady with the brown hair chooses the direction. I wish she would tell us where to go all the time." Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
"We come to me and Fatty's spot the lined decking at the boating lake. I try to say when what happened when Fatty fell down the well. The man threw the coin in like Fatty did. I sing Grandmas song. I teach them Grandmas song why did I do that?!! " Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
"No - one knows that song but me. I need to breath I need to think of someone that I know. I feel alone with these people. We think of someone that we love and then I see Fatty." Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
"But they are slowing me down. They needed to run faster. Our torches shine on the forest looking for Fatty. He has gone. I tell them a secret. They help me to yell. How long is a piece of string? " Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
"My Brown Yard to My Grey Town it has not always been like this. They do not believe me. I give gifts as I am not ready to give myself. I leave them alone. It is better that way. Sky the Reluctant Super Hero
Our walk ended in the Rooftop Gallery, we viewed the exhibition and were served delicious tea and cake. We were all given gift bags and questions in plant pots to discuss. Sky left us, we talked and enjoyed our tea.
We had been asked to bring an object to talk about - I brought my blue Mexican dog - a present from Kathy Page and explained why I had chosen it.
We shared other objects and dispersed into the night.
