I would like to thank everyone who has been so generous in helping me get started with this project. All the visitors to Dialogi and Larisa, Kolya, Alina and Maksim, who have helped me with the exhibition of the work. It is a beginning, and I will add to this weblog in future.
I leave St Petersburg tomorrow and will not be writing here for a few days. Please have a look at Flickr where you can see a lot more photos. Go to this url: http://www.flickr.com/photos/41594771@N04/
I like this reminder that while there are many new ways now to communicate electronically, the old fashioned way of writing letters is really good, too!
This suggestion for a "Road to Happiness" with a possible route (somewhere - can't read the handwriting - to St Petersburg and Moscow) as one possibility is a concrete way to begin thinking of how to make work, such as a performance or participatory journey, that expresses many visitors' wish for happiness and feeling that happiness is very important.
