A moment on this earth

A former student found the Cuban Artist Jorge Rodriguez Gerada and thought I should check him out.  I personally love his work which is created in dirt and charcoal.  His pieces are also done in really large scale on the sides of buildings or in empty fields.

Since his work is done with natural materials, it is only there for a short time and then mother nature takes it away.  He says that it is the same as how our moments on both earth and in the spotlight is just as short.

Do you agree with his statement?  How does that make you feel?   Would you be able to create work like his and be okay with it going away after a big rain storm?  Tell me your thoughts.

What did you do with your summer?

I know you are not really ready to be back, but I would like to know what you did this summer.  What did you see?  Where did you go?  What did you do? It might not sound fun or exciting to you, but I am really interested.

I will share my favorite thing this summer.  It was my Europe trip to London, Paris and Barcelona.  I took 24 people on an adventure, and yes, it was an adventure.  Things did not go according to plan all of the time, but I had a great group and they made the best of every situation.
