A message from Joe Dolce....
"Here's the Sappho poem I sang (referencing the Pleiades) and a link to an audio version - at the bottom of the link.
Tonight I've watched
the moon and then
The night is now
I am in bed alone.
- Recording of Fragment 64, translated by Mary Barnard, from 'Evocation of Sappho' four fragments set to music, sung in English translation and performed by Joe Dolce, from the CD 'freelovedays', 26 April 2003.
"....... the Wiki page for the great poet Sappho. A link to my recording of Fragment 64 (translated by Mary Barnard) from my album 'Freelovedays' is at the bottom of the page but do listen to all the interpretations for insights into her work.

Some images till next time...
There has been a fantastic response to Pleiades...
It looks fabulous!
......I loved the Pleiades tree also – I was raised in English countryside and the reminded me of snow on the winter branches which quite affected me.
We have been out and looked at your balls on display. Did it from the car as neither of us were able to get out in the cold weather and wander around. Lots of people in civic square looking. It adds a new dimension to the tree. Looks good.
Jackie and John
IT looks great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Was so wonderful watching you install your beautiful work ... my little girl is still talking about 'the snow tree'.
Loz and Dinny
....... the beautiful balls that are in the tree in civic square?
They would be perfect for us to use in the same effect for our wedding in February?...
(my response to this one....
How fantastic that you have been inspired by the instillation.
I do agree that making your own would be a far more engaging process for you and your wedding party/guests; your own private collection from guests and family would be a beautiful memento.)
Thsi box contains work from
NAIDOC – Alice Springs,
Fibre Group - Warrenton, VA. USA
Episcoal Church, Warrenton, VA. USA
Year 1 boys at Living Watus Lutheran School- Alice Springs
Regina had heard about Pleiades from the Textile Fibre Forum web site, thanks to Janet DeBoer's genorosity and support in posting Pleiades details on the TAFTA web site: http://www.tafta.org.au/
What I find fantastic is that this work is inspiring people from across the globe to contribute. This truly validates the essence of the work... "we all live under the same sun".
Extracts from our communications....
I read about your project on the TAFTA website and was enamoured. I am from Virginia, transplanted to Alice Springs for 2 years. We're about a year down. I asked my fibre pals in VA (Piedmont Spinners and Weavers) if they'd like to be in your installation and they made a boxful at their meeting. The meeting leader also made some with the care-givers at her church in Warrenton, VA. ........ I'll be sure to take some at the NAIDOC program. It's at Central Craft here, in Alice where the Beanie Festival just ended. Oh, that would have been a great sphere opportunity! Rats!.
... here is the list
from the guild its : Helen T. Elaine R., Feliecia B., Wanda D. (first timer) , and Me.
from St. Stephen Church : Ruth F., Michele & Lindsay McD., Kay S., Karen M., and Me.
So I think it will be neat that there will be Virginia felted balls hanging from trees in Tasmania.
I think it is very neat... Thank you all very much.
