Sir Ken Robinson - Educating the Heart and Mind
Enjoyed some time, as I was stitching down the sun, today while listening to this excellent presentation.
I come from a family of educators, supporting the growth of infants to middle-schoolers, with some adults thrown in for good measure. The women in my family & our friends have chosen to educate, nurture...teach. This is something I am proud of.
This video made me reflect on how many of the children in my past may have enjoyed more success in 'alternate' learning environments. Maybe I would have too.
Additionally, this was a thought provoking video to watch as
I have just begun a new class with Jude Hill. Her online style is a breath of fresh air, suiting my personal learning style to a T!
This piece should work it's way to complete by tomorrow.
The moon, done in blue in honor of our blue moon last month has been waiting patiently.
I think now that these two elements are placed, I may need to pause and take a little look. I may add a bit more, I may leave this cloth very 'open-ended'.
I'm thinking 'story starter' like Michelle's gift. I like not knowing where I am going with cloth. I like following along, exploring...being surprised. It's pretty fun that way!
Tra La La...off I go ~ to sew.....
