Giving Back

Today was a day of gifts. I introduced 30 children to the basics of Chinese Calligraphy at the West Des Moines Library. One challenge was to give my demonstrations on a vertical surface. Now, that doesn't seem difficult until you think about standing on spotless carpet & painting with a large brush soaked in black ink. The staff may have been worried about the students spilling, but I was worried about ME spilling!

There were so many eager faces in the crowd. It warmed my heart to see all of those eager faces sitting there just waiting to learn.

The kids had fun and so did I!
