trip to the Happy Land

Once again children have reminded me that life is a gift, which is to be treasured.

I have been to an amazing exhibition called "We are different, but we are friends" that presents more than 700 works created by handicapped children from dozens of orphanages and compensatory kindergartens throughout the country.

The children have created a lot of colourful and very talented works in various techniques such as painting, graphic arts, makrame, patch work, engraving, applique' work, origami, herbarium, embroidery, beadwork, stained-glass, lace trimming, batic, stuffed toys and so on. I was astonished by very high quality of their arts and crafts and by immense joie de vivre radiating from each and every creation.

It was a fairy-like trip to the Happy Land that only children could enter and understand and I loved it.

I would love to have been there.

A couple years ago I attended a collection of art projects done by local public school kids. To my great surprise, I was amazed. Creative little artists and impressive projects under the direction of some very talented teachers.

Kids can make just about anything more special. Too bad they eventually become teenagers! :)
