You’ve Probably Already Seen This…

When no one else was like my grandfather in my life, Mr. Rogers was as rare and decent in his unconditional love. That was enough for me to make it to adulthood…and into my current life…and into the future! Thank you…

As much as both were Presbyterian, they were Universalist…

Thank you to the children who approach me and say gentle things and request hugs…at that moment everything seems right with the world…

Keeping Things Resourceful

 

…not a sponsored post…but yes, I recycled the bag…

 

2 Grocery Bags’ Greenery…the excess goes toward the kitty litter bin…

 

Hydration…an eraser-free sketch just as I incidentally met M. and H. yesterday with their son and daughter…chatting about Creative Action, Austin Free Forest School and such…

Thank you to my dear friend of decades, L.E., as well as new friends…and to my new clients, thank you…I. appreciate. you…

Accessible Earth-Friendly Art That Inspires…

This semester, my young’un art students no longer wait for a recycle bin at their school (we waited and waited and waited…no recycle bin…)…they now just simply re-use paper from the “scrap bin”. Consistently, this Helenbobelen has been modeling various art projects using “recycled” paper and often times in a jokey/ironic way, depending on the paper’s written content…(yes, I’m giving this Helenbobelen a proverbial pat on the back…)

But in general, getting this to Earth-friendly art to happen is a shared joyeous victory and now these kiddos can see how beautiful the random colored scraps can look.

This morning, I came across Kirsten Dirksen’s video of Thomas Dambo who, along with Elon Musk, show that it’s indeed cool for men to recycle and care about our children’s future Earth.

It takes energy to recycle. It takes energy to care…and truly create.

Enjoy!
