New pots for my beauties- I love their full roundness-
Finishing touches on paintings for tomorrow.
Finalising my thoughts on the course I start teaching on Tuesday.
(I always find teaching a great learning opportunity- I will start with Matisse this time and that makes me so very happy)
Thinking that what children need more than anything- really- is the 'parental eye', not looking after them with great stress and worry (like my 'eye' was for most of my first three children's life) but with interested, kind, and firm attentiveness- When I have taken Lucy to basketball the last couple of weeks I have spent the whole time 'looking' at her, seeing what I might learn...Before I would read, chat with other moms, and mostly draw while waiting for her. I thought that by giving her all my attention it would be good 'for her' but today I realised it is also teaching me things about her that I might have missed otherwise.
Pieces are falling into place. The puzzle is coming together.
