I haven't been sketching much lately, but the other morning I sketched
a shop window display looking out the window
of my café in the Old Port.
Several years ago a snowfall created a perfect medium for creating snow folks. Don't you love the snowdog? One year, the Child Me made a snowhorse. You could actually sit on it & rock it as if you were galloping!
Snowfamilies were out in full force the year of the snow sculpture snow.
Personalities appeared, & you felt the energy of the families working together.
Here was a snowman who danced, flew, & even visited the boy inside his house, all told in gentle animation with lovely music. I was charmed all over again.I did my final project on an integrated curriculum around the theme of snow.
I can hear my mother's voice right now: "Go out & play in the snow while we have it!"
OK, Inner Mom Voice, I'm putting on my boots.
