One on one painting joint venture – a bear/wolf with Eddie, for his brother Bruno – now at school!
Eddie loves mixing up all colours to muddy, but by a cunning method – in between the freeflow colour mixup – I got him to do structure on canvas which ended up as this bear looking at a diamond… every thing that he put on canvas that looked like something I got him to follow up, and helped him not to paint/plaster the shapes over so they built… Yes suggestive structuring… scaffolding I think the term is… Raewyn’s studying early childhood education.. one guy they study, Vygotsky, says they benefit from these scaffolds for play and learning so they can explore cool new things more easily. So, Eddie got to mix up a lot of paint, but also got a bear to give his brother:)
It would be interesting to do a whole kaleidoscope of painting with a group of similar aged kids…a Renaissance creative painting Workshop…?
We may be disappearing into a culture-wide ‘Matrix’ and our prime reality, life on this fragile planet, in this vast universe, may be receding into the fog of illusion…. We are dreaming a new technodream which could doom our planet to go to hell in a handbasket. I posted this thought recently on my personal blog, here: https://wizardofeutopia.com/2018/04/27/the-hedonomatrix/
We need to dream new possibilities for living on THIS planet, THIS embodied reality. I hope I can shake myself awake enough to keep Dreamspace vision alive long enough to inspire others to join me here, to generate new good things, ways of being in the world, being our possible creator selves in harmony with the higher wisdom… we, the 21st century sleepwalkers… I hope you will consider joining Lifegym here as we explore the possible human in many modalities. See the page on this blog about lifegym. I started a website: www.lifegym.nz
Take the RED pill… See you on the other side! Prime reality, where we can face down our demons, then dream and create a better world together. ‘Remain true to the Earth, my brothers!’ – Zarathustra
