Congratulations to all who participated in the Fall Writing Conference in Montpelier, Vermont on Saturday, November 11! It was amazing to hear all your voices through all kinds of writing, there was so much talent to be heard!
I had a dream, A wonderful dream A dream as magical as fairy dust— In my dream, I saw Peter Pan With Tinker Bell by his side. I dreamed we went to Neverland, And saw Captain Hook and his maties. I also saw Native Americans, and Mermaids, too, with braids. I felt like I could fly, With dust that twinkled with a shine. I went soarin through clouds,
My life is a canvas, The paints of my palette are the experiences and lessons that I have learned, And my pictures are the events that come with living. I am the artist. I'm the only one who can paint my story.
So why do other people feel the need to paint my life for me? And why do I let them?
This is my masterpiece, why am I letting these amateurs deface it?
Make a sculpture out of natural things on the ground in the woods or in your backyard— sticks, rocks, leaves, etc. Don’t harm or disturb the habitat. Take a picture and post it. The most creative sculptor will receive YWP’s delicious, environmentally friendly, locally produced chocolate!
