Teacher ATC

“The power of imagination makes us infinite.”
– John Muir

Teacher

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

I call this one teacher, because it has strong, firm lines, yet it’s cheerful and welcoming.  Teachers are so wonderful in a way that is so often under-appreciated.   They help us to see our own uniqueness and potential, while coaxing along our sense of accomplishment and self worth.    Now days, they are sometimes the only ones who do that, as the home front just keeps getting busier and busier.  Okay…. stepping off my soap box now.  🙂

About John Muir

American naturalist John Muir is remembered as a passionate champion of the natural wonder of Yosemite; he was instrumental in turning the land into a national park. Born in Scotland in 1838, he immigrated with his family to Wisconsin in 1849. He dropped out of college to walk 1,000 miles from Indiana to Florida. After falling in love with Yosemite, he took a job herding sheep nearby. He developed the theory that the valley was created by glaciers, which is now accepted as fact. He died in 1914.
