This is Julia, named for the friend who agreed to be wrapped in plaster for art's sake. Z made her in art class when she was a high school junior. She won a prize, and was exhibited all over the state. But I knew it would just be a matter of time before she'd arrive here, like another mouth to feed, and we'd have to put her somewhere. For years she was in the living room, next to the fireplace. Now she's upstairs where she alternates between the two large empty bedrooms. But there will be young visitors up there soon, and they might be frightened. Maybe time to bring her back downstairs. I enjoy having her around. And there's plenty of room for her now.

How did I not know that Julia had won a prize and been exhibited all over the state? Congratulations, Z!

I remember Madeleine being quite enthralled with Julia during our last visit.

I didn't realize she'd won a prize either-- congratulations, Z!
