Some images are so striking
They penetrate the memory
Before they enter the eye...
A book with a cover
Of the Man in the Moon reading a
Book with the cover with the Man
In the Moon reading...
The Hand of God
Creating fish beast fowl
The hand of a child.*
Peter Jukes 1995
* This is actually a personal memory from about the age of five, when I was asked to draw the creation scene in school. But I also found this once on the internet
A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's artwork. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.
The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."
The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied, 'They will in a minute."
