    Ideal Academy Public Charter School

    One of the highlights of this year was when I was invited by an art teacher to be a guest speaker at the Ideal Academy, a charter elementary school in Washington DC. I spoke to two classes of fifth graders about art and, of course, they wanted to know if they could make money as an artist. I told them, "If art is your passion, you could make as much money as you want." Then after a guided meditation, I instructed them to draw the cover of a book about the llife of the late legendary Michael Jackson. It was such a delight to witness these young kids work so intently with their imagination. How about you? Are you using your imagination to create music or produce a video, write poetry, make art and crafts or create your vision board for 2010? If not, make it a priority for 2010 and experience a subtle change - an opening to your creative potential. Remember, the personality is "terrified," but the soul is "fearless." Go past your comfort zone. You are your own experience, anyway.
