A high school teacher drew a dot on the blackboard and asked the class what it was. “A chalk dot on the blackboard,” was the only response.
“I am surprised at you,” the teacher said. “I did this exercise with a group of kindergarteners and they thought of fifty different things it could be: an owl’s eye, a squashed bug, a cow’s head. They had their imaginations in high gear.”
As Picasso so eloquently put it “Every child is an artist. The challenge is to remain an artist after you grow up.”
When you look at children their minds are often like the free and fearless eagle we see in the sky.
Their minds are not limited with all of the baggage of what can’t be done.
If there is one thing that we can learn from kids, it’s this.
