kinders weave all the threads together.

and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life

and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another

that creates something.”

update

for those who wondered

right along with me

how i would solve 

this puzzle

when the symmetrical framing

was 

quite possibly built upside down

on a table too small to turn the puzzle

i opted

not to 

turn the table or tear down the walls or the house

instead

i accepted 

the opportunity

of  the additional challenge

offered up

and just built it upside down.

solved.

no students today

teachers get together to talk and play

and

to see how it feels for our kids

as we encourage them to experiment

to play with the process

rather than make a project

 for the pure joy of creation

we try out materials

with no expected outcome

just for the chance to see what will happen

when we are finished

we share what we’ve made with each other

and as it happens

each one is a beauty in its own way.

“colours are brighter when the mind is open.”

nothing i love better

than to see

children, adults, pets, families

in

wagons

strollers

on foot

on bicycles

walking

running

skipping

being carried.

stopping by

to pay a visit

to the fairy garden

in all four seasons.

chatting

playing

smiling

bringing gifts

acting out stories

taking tokens

noting changes

moving things

telling secrets

making memories

leaving special things behind.

spending a little quiet time

with the fairies

before they head

back into life 

in a 

busy grown-up world. 

child of the pure, unclouded brow
and dreaming eyes of wonder!
though time be fleet and I and thou
are half a life asunder,
thy loving smile will surely hail
the love-gift of a fairy tale.
