Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Recently I had a negative interaction going with another AFI member. I don't know why this person took such a dislike to me from my first postings on the this website to the last one had with him a few minutes ago. I've chosen to stop discussing anything with ths fellow.
As the old saying goes, "You can't please all the people all the time."
But my message to you is that there is power in words.
PLEASE, watch this and think before you write.
A little REAL drama, not that hyped up stuff - and look! - no words.
Too bad I can't get more people to view it. Any ideas?
I viewed, but didn't have a chance to comment. I found the message to be very powerful. I'm trying to figure out how to use it with my first grade class. We're currently having some issues with what we say to each other. It's amazing how hurtful 6 year olds can be without realizing it.
Although, Linda - some folks may realize what they say and say it just for the reaction. I often tell my students to let it slide.
Thanks, Julie and Teri!
I am very fascile with words. Maybe I should be writting a novel instead using my passion and magic for mixing hues and lusters, balancing glitter with gold, aligning echoing shapes to create balance.....or in plain Elglish, soldering, burning in the kiln, buying or making elements, opening countless rings or making loops, etc.
I know that That Video slowed me down and reminded me of my values: use words to help.
That is what I see at AFI: wonderful people verbally helping others.
That is someting you can't buy today...it's priceless.
I always think of the phrase my Mom taught me when we were learning to sew together.
Measure twice, cut one.
I TRY to think twice, and write one.
But I have a quick wit and hand so I too need to be reminded about the Power of Words.
