I saw this on a coffee shop bulletin board in New Smyrna Beach this week. It reminded me of having a growth mindset, of being open to beginnings, of starting, once again, along different avenues in my life (teaching, writing, art making) and to get going on my exercise plan. It feels good to move, to stretch, to lift weights--got back to the gym this week.
The family gathered to celebrate my father's eightieth birthday. The quiet moments drawing, painting and talking, gathered around a long slab-top table in the hotel lobby, were the best moments this week. My brother lives far away in the snow-covered north, so any time we get together is cause for celebration.
Even the kids got in on the drawing fun together.
Art this week inspired me. There was an Art Fiesta at the beach and this week--lots of great glass, art and craftsmanship.
And my students shared their first altered book entries for an Art of Analysis project we've just begun.
A lot to celebrate this week.
