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
joyful young scientist
teaching and demonstrating
for even younger scientists
ends his hands-on physics and chemistry lessons
with a show-stopper
a fog-shooting cannon
crafted from a garbage can
and the crowd realizes how much they love science
and simply cannot get enough.
“facts are to the mind what food is to the body.”
ann arbor public library, pittsfield branch
one of the sweetest cards ever –
created by one of my kinders
who “read” it aloud to me:
“I really, really, really hope that your foot feels better very, very soon.”
(complete with a picture of me with one foot in the giant boot. )
“if you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.”
as the snowfall arrives
there is a soft quiet
a world of white outside
the cottage is filled with color
the center of the snow globe
i’m clearly drawn to whimsical animal art
that is the wing of a peacock kite you see in the upper left corner.
“laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”
