After over three years, Corner to Corner is closing the circle of giving and receiving that began in September 2011. In forty months, the tenugui has made a long journey: thirty-five destinations across the world, going as far north as the Faroe Islands I stand corrected, the Arctic Circle, and as far south as New Zealand.
I do hope you all have enjoyed joining this circle that we've created. It certainly has been a great pleasure for me to follow the journey, and over the years to receive emails from you as it arrived here, or left there. I also found very moving to open the package Tami sent me, and find (among some gorgeous handmade gifts) a well-traveled tenugui, containing all the tags and handwritten notes each of you had written to each other, strung together as a simple but tangible symbol of all that connects us despite our differences, backgrounds and distances.
The tenugui has reached its final destination here with me, but the string of notes will make the last leg of its journey back to Joanne, and close the circle. A special thank you to Joanne for starting this circle, to Susanna for making such a beutiful image for us, and to each and every one of you for making Corner to Corner happen over the last three years!
