Dominique Moody working on the Nomad
For the past few years I have carried the vision of the Nomad through its blessings and challenges. The physical work was tremendous, the process required a “village” to manifest bringing the Nomad into being. Each person provided valuable skills or resources for its completion, so I wish to thank you all for your support, donations, work, advice etc. The journey has taken us all from A to Z.
