kinders transform with hands, finger paint, foil, and joy.
“the goal of life is rapture. art is the way we experience it.
art is the transforming experience.”
— joseph campbell
the grandies offered me a chance
to choose my superpower –
flight, strength, invisibility, speed, or shape shift?
i chose invisibilty
got inside of the machine
they powered it up
when i came out
they confirmed that i was now invisible.
except for my feet
which did not fit in the box.
i can live with that.
“the things that make us different, those are our superpowers.”
spent time in my classroom
doing some pre-planning with my team
and saw how thorough
our summer cleaning crew had been.
i especially loved the note they left on the chairs:
they did not merely say
but instead they kicked it up a notch to an ’11’
the ‘disinfected’ level
for the kinders’ chairs.
i can certainly appreciate that.
