got together at a friend’s house
for a night of catching up and relaxing
the cat seemed to be taking the mission very seriously
and is my idol.
‘life is one long process of getting tired.”
tiny kinder spent nearly an hour
not asking for any help
very carefully snipping tiny pieces
from the roll of sticky green tape
placing them on her fringed orange paper.
when she was happy with what she had created
her beautiful piece of art was done.
“great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
-vincent van gogh
no students today
teachers get together to talk and play
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.”
