i'm doing my

home work...

… and I want to share it with you! 

 

I draw what I think and see.  It's sort of like scribing, and a little like painting.  

 

It's September, and I'm back in Brooklyn teaching Montessori English, music and art.   I still believe in hope.   And abiding love.  And making art.  And listening to each other.


And swimming.

Breathe. 

 

Make beauty in your life. 

 

Give whatever you can.
