Digital Collage - Five


I made this collage this morning. As I sat behind a school bus yesterday, I was remembering something my grandmother had said to me. School is a privilege, use your time wisely. She was so smart. It is hard to believe that in her lifetime school was not something you had to do. Most kids worked or tended the younger ones so the parents could work. There were no day cares. Young children like these were on their own most of the day. How lucky we are.

Unbearable to think what life was like then - we take so much for granted now. This is a very emotive piece and beautifully created.

Beautiful - your gram's was smart even if at the time we hated school. Looking back now, it wasn't so bad. :)
