A completely different reaction

In an earlier post, I wrote about my friend who had received the bitchy email response to the group sculpture show she was in.

This recent newspaper article about her show includes the following anecdote, which serves as a natural rebuttal to the negative emailer:

" ... the majority of park-goers have been delighted by the surreal quality the installations lend to the park. One group of day-care children was so enthralled by the sculptures, they sat down and started building impromptu sculptures from chunks of asphalt and other debris along the path.

"We came by on accident on Friday, and we just had to come back today," said Sarah Lemos, an employee at the Clinton Path Preschool in Brookline Village. “They’re completely inspired."

If adults could carry a childlike wonder and appreciation with them each day, the world would be a better place! Either that, or keep their negative opinions to themselves. It's easier to criticize someone else's creative efforts than to focus on your own.

Go Wendy! Go Clinton Path preschoolers!
