Cabin Fever Creativity
I had completely forgotten about this photo until today. It has been a long week--great work, interesting questions but that funky period that hits us Northerners at the end of winter right before Spring. A little cabin fever, I think. Anyway, someone came up with this entirely new take on the pink tower and the brown stair. It was the first time in nine years I've seen this architectural oddity. Maybe cabin fever furthers creativity. It has to be good for something!
I am a Montessori teacher who just completed my 10th year. I feel lucky to have found a calling that incorporates so many of my interests: music, theater, art, literature, and sports. I adore singing, tennis, and gardening. I have three fabulous children ranging in age from 14-21 (all Montessori-educated). Montessori opened up the world for me. I found out I love practical life and making beautiful things, which I have dubbed "Jane Austen Time."
