When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Summer Respite!

The beauty of teaching for me is getting to share what I love most with little people that I adore. But it would be dishonest and almost ridiculous NOT to state the obvious: I live for summer break! It is an artist's dream job!Every sniffling nose,upchuck on my carpet,whimper,whine,occasional pee,sigh of boredom,line cutters and tattle talers:)all of whom I love,are embraced and "endured" more patiently throughout the school year,because of the ever present promise of summer break! Then I have a block of time in which to create, paint,blog, but never be bored. I am trying to quickly finish some paintings for an upcoming exhibit. The beauty is in the details. Have we really been out of school for a week already?
