Kolkata Diary.Teaching The Women at “Heart House” to Make Potholders

Me and Soma (third from right) and some of the women from Heart House who will be making more potholders.  Photo by Kelly Campbell.

I guess it was meant to be.  Today, I taught one of the women at Soma’s Heart House to make potholders, then she taught the other women.

It was a very special day and I want to write all about it, but I’m so tired now I just need to sleep.

Maybe I’ll wake up at 3am and write as I have been doing the past week.  But if I sleep through the night, I’ll get to it tomorrow.

For now, here’s some pictures…
