Then a pause before the next workshop. By the river at St Clement, just outside Truro - near Malpas, where Tristan carried Iseult across the ford in Arthurian legend. Had not realised that the channels in the mud could be so deep. (An important journey for Iseult - an elaborate trick that saved her life.)
Plenty of clarity though at Richard Lander School, Truro, with the class of very motivated and engaged children we met two weeks ago. A variety of excellent suitcases that they have created with their journeys.
Megan Mason has drawn a journey of dreams - her planned career and passage through life.
Rebecca Water, 14, drew a very delicate map with key symbols in her life - a palm tree on the left from the Caribbean island where her mother was born. The London Eye - top right (she was born in London).
Rihana Davey, 13, drew all the places that have been significant in her life so far - from the maternity wing where she was born, to the play group she attended, to her home and school now...
The class hard at work, imagining themselves migrant workers far from home, and writing postcards home. A very rewarding place to work - we are returning after Easter to do some assemblies.
