Right, here it is! At the start of the project, I promised that there would be chances to get involved in Follies for Follies - this is the first one. I am hoping, during one of my return visits to Cannon Hall, to create 'windows' for the remaining openings, with the help of a rather large number of children - and you! In line with the written letter that features on 'Vigil 1', I am hoping to feature writing on these other windows (although they won't be made of glass. For that, I need your help. If you don't mind sharing, please tell me your response to the concept of 'Vigil' - it might be a one-word association, it might be a feeling, a story, a poem. I would love to hear them all, and to feature as many as possible! To show that this part of the 'follification' will have been created by many, many people, I would love to be allowed to use some information. Your first name, for example, or your age (since I'm also hoping to involve school classes in this). So, if you wouldn't mind, since I won't know everybody who comments, please write in your comment EXACTLY what you would allow to be put on the window, e.g. 'Vigil means xyz. Joe Bloggs, Leeds, 56'. You get the picture? I am a bit nervous about this first call for participation, and I would really appreciate it if you could spread the word - thank you!!!!
PS: I will also share this on Facebook and invite comments there - you don't need to comment twice, I will gather them from both locations!

Watching, waiting and praying in quiet tranquilitity to ward off malign spirits and dark arts... Hoping against hope for light, for a safe return.
