Alpha Dictionary Challenge - B



Today a new letter was posted for the "Alpha Dictionary Challenge" at The Craft Barn:  B.

As I thought about the letter, the word balance struck me as the word I needed to focus on. Looking up quotes, I rediscovered Robert Fulghum's quote:

"Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some."
What perfect words as I leave teaching for retirement!
 

 
(A gelli paper background of course!)

Check here to see how others created with "B".
