Black and white print – a part of the series, “Lessons Learned from Six-year Olds”.
The inspiration for this print came from the following true incident. One day Shaela, my six year old grand daughter came home after her skating lesson. When I asked her what she had learned that day, she said she learned to skate backwards. I asked her how would one do that. What transpired after that blew me away. She said, “Wait!” She brought a piece of paper and pencil and proceeded to explain the process. She put an “X” on the paper and said, “This is me.” You can see the X on the print. Then she drew some “C”s and said, “All you do is make “C”s forward and backwards.” She had deconstructed and simplified all the instructions given by the coach, had visualized in her mind what she wanted as results and then it was a matter of simply going ahead and doing it. The message was clear. If only we could deconstruct the steps and visualize what we wish to accomplish, the actualization would be easy!
