Seeds Of Creativity
'All of the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today' Kahlil Gibran
When Harry returned to school after the Summer holidays, his teacher asked the class if they would like to bring in photographs of some of the places they visited and activities they took part in during the break. Harry took our journals in instead and his teacher and the pupils were so inspired that they asked to see more. I thought it was wonderful that a class of ten year olds were so interested and offered to bring some of my journals into school one afternoon, talk about journaling and perhaps create a journal page with them. Harry's teacher was thrilled and, after a short discussion, small journals were ordered and I offered to run workshop sessions on Friday afternoons. The project was supposed to start on 26th September but Harry came down with chicken pox and this week had already been booked off school for our little break, so I begin the classes next Friday. I am looking forward to seeing 30 new journals begin, pages brimming with thoughts, dreams and creativity. Who knows, maybe a few of the children will continue the idea into their adulthood...I wish I had started so young.
PS. I finally uploaded my photographs from our day at Dever Springs and you can view Harry posing with his big catch over on his blog.
