the funniest story; a student came in this morning with a present for me…
a buddha balloon. it was the coolest end of year gift ever! as i was about
to take a photo it started to lose air quickly… she hadn’t tied it correctly,
so it just totally deflated. i got this blurry shot before it lost all life…
i made a comment about ‘impermanence’ and she blew it up again.
then as i was tying it – it popped!
so… today i am grateful for learning a quite beautiful lesson
on impermanence and clinging.
other things i am grateful for…
my ever expanding inspiration wall in my school office/studio
another gift from the same student – a cardboard buddha sitting
on a peace crane she folded:)
that a 5th grade student really understood the project guidelines for this
plaster mask and made this beautiful peice:)
teaching the kids about sadako sasaki and folding
origami peace cranes with them – the multi colored one was
decorated by my intern;)

my daily stop for inspiration of ALL kinds…
paintings that my students make that match my summer dresses.
for 3 weeks of no (added) sugar!!!
still feeling good… still having cravings…
oh, and one more… that my other camera is getting
fixed under a warranty – this one takes blurry shots inside!!!
