1 image can worth more than 1,000 words.
Especially someone with right-brain mindset like me, having image is very important for my blog, work and others. Also, I wanted to develop my creativity since without practice, your creativity will just ebb, and I did not want to let that happen.

By nature, children have a playful mind.
However, as I pointed out in the previous post (Forgotten Play), kids tend to forget that mind as they grow up. Unfortunately, education system and teachers can be the ones which take it away.
Therefore, educators themselves should have playful mind first in order to enhance kids’ play and learning, instead of destroying it.
And I think the key to that lies in ART, the “non-core subject” which tends to be underestimated.
This is just very important. It’s something which makes you smarter, creative, sociable, healthier and happier. And we adults used to have this much more, and as we age, we tend to lose it.
It’s a playful mind.

Do you believe in good crime?
Today, an impressive Chilean news came out, which made me want to write this.
It’s about Papa Frita (French Fry in Spanish).
Papa frita? Yes, Chilean people consume it so much. But what I refer to is something else, more accurately someone else, a hero who calls himself “papa frita”. In short, he did something against the law but something very remarkable to help people.
