It takes a community

It takes a community

One of my goals for 2009 is to upload a photo a day to Flickr and to write about some of them on this blog or in other places. One thing this project has done for me ... and we are only a week in to it.. is recognizing things I might otherwise not notice and, in the case of this photo, rediscovering something I had grown to take for granted. I was visiting one of the schools where I previously served as principal and seeing this mural and the maze table in front of it reminded me of the parent group who spearheaded its creation to enhance the foyer some years ago.

Though you can't see much detail in the image, the theme is that it takes a community to raise a child and as the road winds and moves through various mazes and twists and turns, there are wise sayings, and key words.

Under the table, on the floor, is a continuing representation of the road, much like the yellowbrick road, that leads to the hallways.

Thank you Cedar Grove parents for all you do for your children.

Hi Bob,
I started a 365 project this year too.
It started out easy. But now that I'm back at work I find that I forget till I get home and then I have to look around the house. I've been using my phone to take many of the pictures when I'm out, it's easier to carry that a camera.
Good luck on your project.
