Blessings of life

It was home time at school. As child, we used to gather local children and walked to primary school in groups in the morning.

Just before the temperature eased and the Spring came around the corner, I re-potted a few of them, and I knew that some of the pots looked ridiculously large for the plants they held. More...

You would think that a private school, where schools fees consisted of $30,000+ a year, would have an art teacher who is dressed like million dollars and painted pictures that should be shown at the national museum, don't you? Our art teacher was different. He wore anything, because he knew that... Continue Reading →
