I think the best approach with a child or anyone for that matter is not to push them when it comes to developing their creative skills – not to turn something they enjoy into drudgery.
Better I think to encourage and praise their effort, those things they create, whether it be pottery, bead work, or art.
People will at times say “if walls could talk” wondering what stories they could tell.
I’ve said as much myself but also wonder sometimes what if trees could talk.
Would they speak of nests and families, of fledglings and their antics, of those who fell from their nest near to return?
Do they embrace the children of others who play in the shade they provide or climb their limbs?
I’m inclined to thinks so believing as I do that trees and children are as compatible as dogs and children.
Not the highest point in Glacier but a nice view.
We live in a features rich era where everything from cell phones, cameras, and multiple setting refrigerators and washing machines as the order of the day.
Is it really necessary to have a dozen or more speeds on a blender? Hardly considering a person will settle on one or two as their go to – but consumers have bought into “options” whether redundant or not and in that redundancy whether it serves any real purpose or not – so much so all these features are considered essential elements.
The choices that can be made on today’s digital cameras are nothing short of amazing and I occasionally run through various of the settings just to remind myself of the choices and versatility.though either manual or aperture priority are where I hang.
Whatever camera the reader may own and however they chose to operate it is their choice and ultimately secondary to their personal level of comfort and enjoyment – don’t be hesitant to experiment, that’s also an option.
