I am voting a lie when Kate asks, Do you have your camera?
When you finish voting you'll want to go upstairs and see what's happening.
Only if you'll take all those other photographs off the walls.
She laughs. Your photograph is nice.
She is especially kind.

Upstairs is creative chaos. 
A children's art class on one side of the room, a TV interview on the other. 
A guy standing in the middle of an installation, photographs surrounding him.

He is exhausted. There is good reason, and I hope to tell you about it tomorrow.

Until then I'll leave you with this quote I found yesterday morning:

Through art, children invite us into their thoughts by communicating through words, drawing, painting, clay, and a number of related "languages" to express these (Edwards et al., 1994). It is our role to provide children with rich experiences, good-quality materials, and skills that will help them be lifelong learners and lifelong thinkers.

Today I am grateful for the opportunity to put in a good day's work.
