it's that time of year - the end of the school year -
that always makes me think of teachers.
and it brings back some great memories.
it was the 70's, and I was teaching elementary school art.
the last days of school always came along too quickly,
but it was a special time to celebrate.
my classroom was always creative and noisy and fun,
so we built a "think tank" for anyone who wanted
to draw or conceptualize a project quietly.
it was fun to make and paint, and then we filled
the inside with inspirational pictures.
now I like to design early in the mornings when it's quiet,
before emails and meetings, before the business day begins.
our studio walls are filled with inspiration and color,
so the "think tank" concept continues.
it's that special time of year, again.
a great time to say thank you to all the teachers in your world,
and to show your appreciation.
