If there was difficulty in assembling Muriel’s material, it was due to her incredible imagination and creativity. She did not fit into a slot. She made up the “curriculum” as she went. There was no 5-year plan. There was no plan. Only her thoughts and ideas that she used as she went along. You want to google something that was in her head? Go ahead, I dare you …. What you see here is my best attempt to gather her artistry into some form, so that you and future generations can appreciate her for what she was. To put her on the map, and if I may be so bold, to fall in love with her, as all of us who worked with her and saw her productions did.
