Repetitive Ripples

Struggled with the colouring of this one and am still not sure that the result is all it could be.

Today's Gratitude Item: Taking time to 'recharge'. Was exhausted after school today and ended up taking a much needed late afternoon nap. All I can say is that not being tired anymore is an amazing feeling.

5776 Yom HaShoah

This one contains over 1900 names of those who perished in the Holocaust. The names are from the Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names. The names are clearly visible in the 'original' version of the image.

The rather well known quote is attributed to Martin Niemoller.

Today's Gratitude Item: Getting home early enough to be able to walk outside before it got too dark. Finding $1.20 in the process was a nice bonus.

Today's Gratitude Item: A while back I called 'dibs' on a 'standing desk' that our senior learning team no longer needed. Said furniture, whilst extremely useful, is also rather expensive and it was not in my budget for this year. Happily, it was 'spare' and now it's mine. Life in my classroom has just gotten even better than it was before.

Frisbee

This is in the 'if only it was real' category. I'd imagine it would be fun to play with.

Today's Gratitude Item: That the beaded curtain I have rigged on one of my classroom doors might just work. This despite said curtain being too far off the ground. It will be interesting to see if this is a viable long term solution.

Today's Gratitude Item: Making the most of the last two weeks. The 'to do' list is still rather long but it has not been for lack of trying...
