Remember June’s long days,
and wild strawberries, drops of wine, the dew….”

(Translation by Clare Cavanagh)

Received several thank you emails from my online students today when our class finished. They never understand, I don’t think, how much I have to thank them for ❤
Create a thank you note (written, visual, musical, etc.) to someone else, someone who doesn’t realize how much gratitude your feel for them.

My son came home this weekend, to celebrate Father’s Day with me 🙂 He says since I’ve been both mother and father, I get to celebrate both days. My mama always joked, If you can stand them til they’re twenty-two, you’ll get them back as friends. 🙂 I am so grateful for those kids, my three closest friends ❤
Make art about children as friends.

I hate grocery shopping. But today while grudging my way through it, I ran into a retired colleague whom I adore and haven’t seen in a while. He made me laugh, like always. And I laughed through the rest of the shopping.
Make art about something good arising from something you usually dread.
