a tiny slice of break

a tiny slice of break

i taught high school art all week and it was delicious. sometimes, you need to meet a seventeenyearoldgirl who wants to build violins for a living or a sixteenyearoldboy who obsesses about a fold in a shirt in his pencilportrait to realize that the world just might rock out for a little while longer, that maybe you don't have to automatically frown when you grow up, and that sometimes the sun on your back is all you need.

Yes it is the students that make you feel the sunshine. I folded and raced origami frogs with 12 14-year old boys this week. It doesn't get much better. By the way, the Sound of Music was the first movie I ever saw. I was five.

Thank goodness for our youth to keep us mindful and oh the sun was on my back today. Loved the warmth.
