HI Jan, I checked your post, I guess it was yours, on El Greco.  I have seen his work in Madrid and Toledo and NYC, of course.  I think I missed the Chicago ones.  Actually didn't know they were there.

Hi Jan.  Hope this finds you well.  I loved your recent blog (I left a comment).  Might you want to guest blog on my post?  www.departingthetext.blogspot.com

I loved your post and feel your pain on the five paragraph essay.  I left a (somewhat rambling) anecdote hope it wasn't too much :-)

Anyway, I liked the post and loved your wicked animal!

Looking forward to more visits,

Meryl Jaffe

Hi Jan. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I wrote a response to your really insightful questions which you can view there. Although if you prefer, I can leave in on this page too. Just let me know.

Thanks again,

Hi Jan. I visited your blog (which I loved) and left a message, but not sure it posted so I wrote it here as well:

I loved your blog entry. What is ironic is that I am a teacher by education and trade and a self-taught artist (although I keep saying I want to take courses but cannot seem to find the time). I LOVED your points and they are absolutely true. I also believe that while a formal education (in teaching) helps, you MUST have basic innate skills of patience, compassion, love to learn, enthusiasm and all those points you mention in your blog. I loved it and will come back for more.

My blog is for parents and educators on how to recognize school demands in individual student learning profiles. I hope you visit. I would love your comments and reactions.

All the best,
Meryl Jaffe
