This is a beautiful post, Leigh. And I feel inspired to play with the gorgeous origami paper Matt got me.

Thanks, Rachel.

Great indoor activity for all the snow, too. I actually find it very relaxing.

Ever since Monica taught me the crane, I've been trying to learn more online too. That link to http://lisashea.com has some good instructional video and I hope to try more out soon.

Can't wait to see what you do with that paper.

This is fascinating! I'd never really thought about what it would be like to create art blind.

Simone

This is such a lovely, unique slice of life. Reading it made me feel like a lucky fly on the wall.

Leigh Shulman

It's funny how things sort of surprise you. I also hadn't thought much about what it would be like to create art without sight.

One thing I soon realized is that not having the physical ability to see forces (maybe allows is better) you to see in other ways.

It was quite and experience, and Maria Elena (and Monica) are amazing people.

Thanks, Simone. I felt the same way. I hadn't expected any of this when I walked in the library that morning, and it turned out to be one of my most memorable days in Salta.

Lola

Wonderful post and beautiful shots as well!

Leigh Shulman

Thank you, Lola. I take that as high praise from such an accomplished photographer as yourself.

The lighting in the room was odd. Very yello, and many of the photos didn't come out well at all. These I finagled a bit to give them more defintion.

That's very inspiring indeed. It makes me realize more how lucky a lot of people are and don't even appreciate it.
