KAYA DADA


Before going to bed the other night, Kasumi looked into the room where Kaya, Mitsuki and Miasa were already asleep and noticed something on the bottom of Kaya's foot, so she looked closer, then took a picture:

Sometime during the day Kaya had written "kutsushita" (sock) on the sole of only one foot. Not "shoe," not "foot," but "sock," and surrounded it with green spots. Gotta get her into an art school, fast; she'll wither in the student factory...

My son just started kindergarten. A buzzer announces the start of class. The teacher (a neophyte) tries to condition the kids' behavior with a hand bell and music. Aaaaah! Another comment by the teacher: "I'm trying to get your son to stop focusing on one thing (blocks) and make sure he goes to every 'station' in the classroom." All I can hope for is that nothing *bad* happens. I've kind of given up expecting real learning to take place.

Stop focusing on one thing! Learn something dear to your heart, then where will we be? We don't need no innovators...

I haven't seen a sweeter photo in a while. Wonderful!

How do we know that this isn't the way ALL great artists get started? She may start to look for a bigger canvas....your foot may be next.

I actually had to come look at this again, Robert. There is something here that melts my heart. I think it reminds me of my own childhood doings. Thank you again.
