Fun Monday Challenge #40 - The Wishing Stone

"Wish" collage by Lani textures by FlyPaper.

In art therapy classes, Edith Kramer used to suggest we eliminate the idea of goals in our work. She felt that was a bit unrealistic and perhaps self important, that we could know what was best for the folks we worked with.  And goals don't take into account happy accidents or life events. Edith felt that wishes were a better thing to hold in mind for someone else, and I think wishes might be a good thing to hold in mind for ourselves.

Try this:
At the end of my puppet-making workshops, my storyteller puppet comes out and passes around a meteorite, a piece of fallen star. Everyone gets to make a wish. So right now, pretend I have just passed you a piece of a fallen star and you get to make a wish. What would it be? May your imagination run free!

Create an art piece that best embodies that wish and as always feel free to share your work or play on Instagram by adding #14SecretsChallenge to your description, or by adding your photo to our Flickr pool
