TSS: Just Another Magic Sunday

March 13, 2011

The Sunday Salon.com
As I mentioned briefly, a few weeks ago, our school wide theme, this month, is *Imagination Lab! or , rather a celebration and exploration of all of the amazing ways to learn and have fun doing it. Kai and I took a personal day, toward the end of the week to preview the new Fernbank exhibit focused around Mythic Creatures.

It was superb, if a little bit over Kai’s head. It made me think a good deal about the ways in which more adult mythical creatures like werewolves, angels, vampires, etc. have made their way into young adult and mainstream “big people” stories, forever and continuing. Of course, I of perpetual gift shop thwarting, was seduced by a small Griffin and a slightly larger Phoenix, on our way out. You may thank Hogwarts for the affinity.

    What a neat thing to do. I work in a library and it’s always fun to see and hear what children can come up with.

    It’s so great that you have that type of stuff going on in your area. I would love to see some of that here. I also love your little figurines!
