Dreams and Bones are what we’re made from

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – A folk singer and a song writer whose name you may or may not know of is David Mallet. Originally from Maine, he lived in Nashville for many years but returned to his home state in 1997. His signature theme is called “Garden Song” and contains the line, “We are made of dreams and bones.” Somehow this describes the human condition as only a poet can.

When educating a child, one has to always keep in mind the dual side of our existence on this planet. It’s not uncommon when you are working diligently on some concept to be interrupted by a kindergartener or first grader who claims dramatically that he is bleeding and be shown a pinprick at the end of a tiny finger. The intellect and physical life of a child are always interconnected.
