Happy Little Trees

Wow. I just realized that I hadn’t paid enough attention to the date posted on the schedule for when this blog post was due!!!! I have been too focused on the visual reflection project 🙂

Anywhoooo…… I have truly enjoyed all the demonstrations I’ve seen. It’s been nice to have all the mid-day snacks that accompanied many of the presentations. 🙂 I’ve even made some of the dip recipes at home already, and even cooler, sent one to my guys drumming circle thing Saturday night. Everyone there, (even the vegans) enjoyed Jenna’s taco dip 🙂

I chose to demonstrate some simple painting, I feel like that is something I’ve done enough to demonstrate effectively. Everyone seemed to get a kick out of what was happening. Classroom affection levels for hippo’s has skyrocketed since winter began 🙂

I am a little sad that it’s all almost over. This experience has been a blessing. To see so many people sharing such immense pieces of themselves is just a beautiful thing.

(Gonna work on hippo t-shirt design now though,…..jus’ sayin’) 🙂

    Well i find you to be an amazing person. i must admit i didn’t expect you to be the person you are when i first seen you, but for once i am glad to say i am TOTALLY wrong. you are an amazing artist, with an even more amazing personality, a kind of lesson to me about how to act, how to live. i know you’ve had your share of troubles but you have managed to acquire a character that all the things in the world couldn’t buy. i guess that’s where the happy trees came form:) keep inspiring people, it’s nice haha

    I agree with you on the mid-day snacks. If i knew everyone was going to make something to eat, I wouldnt have eaten lunch. I enjoyed watching you paint, your pretty good.
