the most important thing people did for me was to expose me to new things. – temple grandin

our class went to see

 nick cave’s art exhibit

up close and personal

sound suits

colors

swirls

dancing

textures

fun

then made

their own accessories

in his style

and

learned so much

about art having no boundaries

 how things can look and sound and feel

art can be found in all kinds of places

and

most of all

that each of them are artists in their own right.

it is art fair time once again

and we start out strong

babies v and r bouncing along

and hoping all our wishes come true

wandering through the streets

seeing all the colors

and people

and dogs with hats

and statues that move

and twirly

and painty

and beautiful

shiny things

and dancers

swaying and bending

and smelling

the spicy kabobs

and licking

the sugar

off

the elephant ears

and

hearing

 drums booming

and

touching

all kinds of everything.

and then

it is time for a break

on the diag

a quiet oasis

right in the middle of it all

with a bottle and a blanket and a weary smile

and with the hug of a tree

much bigger than me

and then

IMG_1387 you reach your limit

and you find

your very own

secret and happy place

and

your hopeful wish

is

to go home

once again.

timing has a lot to do with art.
