I packed all of my fabrics away and cleared the space to study. Studying to be a kindergarten teacher is not neuroscience, however - my brain needs a sensory calming environment to concentrate.
There is a tiny table for my miniatures and terrariums - and my other creative supplies are all still readily available if I need them, just not sprawled throughout my house (aka studio). I have taken up some knitting to satisfy the creative urge.

Today I watched this as an introduction to one of my subjects. It really makes one think. It made me feel blessed that after many years of not knowing who I was - my creativity was encouraged by those around me. Growing up - it had been squished by some very influential people in my life. One of them my father. Those people are not in my life these days - and I am continuing to grow and realise how intelligent I am. In many areas other than literacy and numeracy. Have you realised your hearts desires and intelligence's later in life like me? Sir Ken Robinson is a great speaker and summarises what is not often said in our education communities.
