discover within the mess (sols)
Airplanes are the current rage around the Ayres’ house.
The material is in constant flux.
The ideas revised.
The testing constant.
The passion permeable.
They sent cardboard and duct tape home with Noah. He brought his design the next morning. (Noah is a high school senior and hangs out with the kids in the mornings before school.)
So I chose to live in the mess of Airplane Insanity (which is what we’ve come to term this phase). Because I know it is in the mess that good stuff happens. It’s true for my own living and exploring and creating. So I’m giving them space to discover within the mess.
(And a plastic tote… so they can also learn to contain the mess in order to provide space for more ideas to grow without the clutter.)
