Beautiful Vase / February 10, 2019 / Avalynn Bowman
We will take this exercise in steps: 1. To make the vase, carefully break open egg near the top (it will be the mouth o the vase) so that a small hole appears. Empty the content of egg in a bowl. Lay it aside. You will need it to make French omelet after you finish with your project.
After several more days had passed, the teacher made a concerted effort to discover the person who was gradually altering this artwork. She had watched carefully in the morning and afternoons, but had been unable to catch the vandal at work. She decided to check on the room during the playground break, and was amazed to discover the same little boy as he walked quietly and diligently to his desk in the classroom. He carefully selected a handful of crayons, and then pulled the teacher's chair up against the wall beneath his drawing. Concentrating and gently biting on the tip of his tongue, he colored in the last of the fissure at the top of the vase. Then, he pulled out a green crayon and drew a long stem from the top of the vase, a stem that nearly reached the top of the paper. At the top of that long stem, he began to lovingly create soft orange and yellow petals. The boy completed his task without a word or a glance to either side. He was completely absorbed in his loving craft.
