“a creative project is a moving target.
You never end up where you start.’
the kinders remind me of this each and every day.
today on the first day
we welcomed our
new multi-age kinders class
(3s, 4s, and early 5s)
each in their own age and stage
to our school
many for the first time.
“everybody has to learn for the first time.”

as we made our way through the jungle of giant leaves,
only one of us spotted a tiger and we looked out for each other.
“on a hard jungle journey nothing is so important as having a team you can trust.”
― tahir shah,
he was a ‘well-seasoned’ magic man
who came in
to entertain the youngest children
while he wasn’t smooth
his jokes and tricks and props and velvet
had been around a long time
the children loved every trick
opened their eyes wide with wonder
as doves and bunnies and coins and cards and wands and scarves
appeared and disappeared
in all kinds of unexpected places
volunteered to help him
squealed and giggled and clapped with pure delight
until they lost their breath with laughter
he was a showstopper of the highest order
who had found the perfect audience.
