“I have come to the frightening conclusion…
That I am the decisive element.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration,
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides
whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated,
and a person is humanized or de-humanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.
If we treat people as they ought to be,
we help them become
what they are capable of becoming”.
J.W.Goethe

The image is of my 1st few screen printing attempts. This week we focused on colour and while doing some research I was amazed to discover that, Goethe, whose life influenced poetry, drama, prose, philiosphy and science, is most remembered for his Theory of Colours
