Oh, the places you’ll go!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Dr. Seuss is a part of my daily life. The always sweet, cute preschoolers I work with adore Dr. Seuss. They cannot get enough of “Hop on Pop,” or Thing 1 and Thing 2. We read the same stories over and over and work on the same Dr. Seuss puzzles before lunchtime each day. Most of the time, it sounds like they want to read “Deu, Deu” because many of them have a hard time pronouncing their s’s. But all the same, they adore him. I am paying close attention to what they love about Dr. Seuss and llama llama and his mama  (Anna Dewdney) because a dream of mine is to write children’s books. I study the children’s reactions over certain pictures and sounds. I am taking it all in and perhaps in a different manner admiring Dr. Seuss for how he has inspired literacy in children and created some unusual tales. It is difficult putting yourself out there and creating endlessly while it seems all the while, brighter, more creative individuals are striving for the same. The creative world can be unimiaginatively intimidating and sometimes my own fear of “failure” prevents me from creating new pieces. But, through children and discovery of art, I am realizing more and more much of why art is so powerful is for what it creates in you, not necessarily the final product. The act of creating at times is deeply spiritual and releases an inner void where otherwise wasn’t possible. God is showing me more and more about Himself and the ways in which He has created me after His image through creation and art. So this month, I have added The Art of Elysium charity to help provide kids suffering from various conditions the ability to enjoy art. Please, click the link and share it with your friends. It is a free way to support art in suffering children’s lives. Let them create anew, while their bodies struggle to be.

Blessings,
