Some of you will know that one of the things I do is work in schools with children and teachers. One of the best collaborations I ever had was with Elaine Elliot in schools in Laxfield and Martham in Suffolk and Norfolk. Elaine has been a headteacher numerous times but more importantly she is a creative doer like few you will meet who inspires children to excel beyond their means. I suspect it is Elaine's own creative energy that makes this happen, so I was delighted to hear form her the other day with a surprise parcel of mail art.
I am encouraged that people like Elaine are still choosing to un-retire themselves in order to feed the creative imaginations of the future! Yes, Nate, ink is messy but I am sure it was fun! and Elaine, I can't wait to see you new journals!
