When I was in high school and Shangri La was sitting my Dad made her into a ice fishing shanty and took her to lakes all over New York and Canada. Sometimes my Mom would go but I know she was not a fan of sitting on ice all day. There was always a whiskey bottle in Shangri La during this time, to take the chill away! Memories for my parents to cherish.
After my Dad died and my Mom sold the big house my sister Jane took Shangri La to her house in Esperance and she became a garden shed. Jane is an amazing gardener and she carries memories of her own to cherish.
Shangri La is still in New York but I am building a Shangri La for me in my yard in Wilson. She will be a place to create art, hang out with friends and family and to make new memories. I will share the building process as we go along.
I am so excited to be having Shangri La back in my life!
