I helped 50 4th and 5th graders paint their dreams, inspired by Daniel Pinkwater's book, "The Big Orange Splot." The school was Lu Sutton in Novato, CA. One of the students literally had a dream about "The Volcano of Kindness," which was purple and spewed blue sprays of kindness on the land. We all were inspired when she painted it. I felt heartened seeing the genius and loving care of the children.
