This is probably the hardest week of the school year for me. This week I need to remember to stop and smell the roses. This week I need to enjoy the process, and slow down. This week I need to breathe.
It all began when my aunt gave me The Tyger Voyage (by Richard Adams)when I was fourteen. Looking at Nicola Bayley's glowing illustrations made me want to paint some of my own. I still love her work, and I still have that book.
