India: The Dolls Speak!

Francoise Bosteels is a nun from Belgium. I met her in Mumbai at an InterPlay workshop and again in Bangalore. She enjoyed the InterPlay process very much.

In one of her books “Through the Needles Eye” she included a poem I wrote on Miriam’s dance to accompany a photo of one of her dolls. Since she was 17 years old the creation of dolls has been a form of meditation and a way to inspire people around the world to look more closely at the beauty and suffering of village people in India.

Her website and youtube are entrancing and remind me of my connections in India.
