parting instructions


altered assemblage soft sculpture cloth art doll with found objects and found poetry.

poem on base reads:

think, when you grow up

conquer this timid feeling,
which you now indulge

you must learn, for the
good of others. to risk personal
danger, and to be willing to bear
pain of body as well as mind, if
called upon to suffer while doing
your duty to others

learn, also, this harder
lesson,-a willingness to encounter
bodily pain, and even greater danger,
for the good of others

learn,
then, my child, to trust in Him
who always watches over us for
good
