envelope left behind by a kinder in my class
who created it for someone special.
‘i have found that if you love life, life will love you back.’
the kinders naturally understand the power
of a hard helmet and a soft puppy
when getting through a day.
“at the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security. “
“a creative project is a moving target.
You never end up where you start.’
the kinders remind me of this each and every day.
can you tell me about your halloween picture?
can’t you see it?
i think i can, but i’d love for you to tell me about it.
it’s me hiding in the bushes.
“a work of art is the unique result of a unique temperment.”
“eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.”
(my glamour shot after returning from the salon and in full singing mode)
i love that my class
that i am not a top notch singer
they are the best audience ever
very non-judgmental and accepting
as i belt out my tunes
and try to get them on board
i often improvise my own lyrics
when i only know part of them
think of something i’d like to add
many times accidentally
creating my own key
it’s all about the gusto
and not so much the skill.
“music in the soul can be heard by the universe. “
one writes numbers
one draws lines
two young kinders
share a table
each one proud
of what they’re able.
“use what talents you possess;
the woods would be very silent
if no birds sang there except those that sang best.”
