"Can we make it.." Yes
Amazing the power of such a small word ! My kids are getting more
involved and taking more ownership for their works. >>

I'm about three weeks behind in reading my ArtsEdNet, but this posting
brought up this thought.

Did you ever hear the story of how John Lennon met Yoko Ono? This was
something I heard. He had gone to an art opening of hers somewhere (in
London?). One of her pieces made him realize how very special a person she
was. The spectator walked into one room and the room was empty, save for a
ladder. A person would go over to the ladder and climb up to the top. On
the top step of the ladder was a magnifying glass. On the ceiling overhead
was a small dark spot. One picks up the magnifying glass and looks at the
spot. The spot was a word. The word was "Yes".
