mural dedication

Today we finally held the dedication for the mural I completed with the 60, 7th graders from a local school. The experience has been challenging and fulfilling. You can read a little more about it here. The mural was to be dedicated to a respected and cherished member of the faculty that had passed away earlier in the year

For much of the time my focus was directed at getting the students involved in the process, teaching some basic skills, and just dealing with the mechanics of it all - I didn't have a chance to really feel the completion until today.

We were limited in many ways with the project, but at the end of the day I don't think it matters much. The follow through was what was important - using what we had and putting our intention behind it.

It was very special to meet Mr. K's family at the dedication. The highlight of the day was to know they felt the mural truly honored his memory.
